Sicily’s natural beauties are also taken care of; including the ascent of Europe’s greatest volcano, Etna, hiking trails in the Monti Madonie and the most exquisite beaches of the Aeolian Islands. From Palermo to Taormina, unearth all the best restaurants, bars and cafés, the liveliest nightlife and the most brilliant festivals. The Rough Guide to Sicily provides detailed practical advice on where to stay, from hostels to luxury boutique hotels, how to get around and how to get the best value for money.

 Frommer’s Sicily (Darwin Porter)
Experience a place the way the locals do. Enjoy the best it has to offer. The lowdown on Sicily’s most evocative ruins and cathedrals, plus the best beaches, down-home restaurants, and luxury hotels. Outspoken opinions on what’s worth your time and what’s not. Off-the-beaten-path experiences and undiscovered gems, plus new takes on top attractions.

 Michelin Green Guide to Sicily
In typical Michelin Guide fashion, this useful book’s authors are anonymous, but their very traditional British “public school” education in Greek classics shows through anyway. It’s amazing how much information is packed into a volume small enough to fit into a purse or deep pocket. Not just for more popular places, but also smaller towns off the beaten path. The architectural section, which uses real Sicilian temples, castles and churches as its pattern, features great illustrations.

 Blue Guide (Ellen Grady)
Ellen Grady (who, in stark contrast to the authors of other guides, actually lives here in Sicily) presents all kinds of practical information, and she doesn’t insult your intelligence. The narrative sections are travel writing at its finest. There’s art, archeology, history, cuisine, wildlife, local festivals, lodging, museum information, maps and, of course, beaches. The English author, a longtime resident of Sicily, is not afraid to suggest visiting some sights while overlooking others, and presents insightful information on the Real Sicily –imperfect but endlessly fascinating.
