Revised and updated by a local author, this is a comprehensive guide to Sicily, an increasingly popular, year-round Mediterranean destination. Visitors come for the spectacular scenery, magnificent Greek and Roman remains, Norman and Baroque buildings, and fabulous food and wine. This "Blue Guide" explores these aspects and more. The "where to stay" listings have been expanded - to cover everything from the grand, historic hotel in Taormina to farmhouse accommodation, an inn on the beach or a B&B on one of the offshore islands. There are suggestions on where to eat, based on the author's personal recommendations, and there is practical information on travel options, festival dates, opening times, and more.
