Sicily is a unique blend of diverse cultures and lifestyles with a fascinating mix of art, music, architecture, archeology, folklore, breathtaking scenery, and, of course, great food. At various points throughout its cosmopolitan history, Sicily has been a Greek colony, a Roman province, an Arab emirate, and a Norman kingdom, each leaving behind an eclectic history that continues to intrigue visitors today. Authentic Sicily gives an insider perspective on the island — its restaurants, hotels, shopping, events, and cultural offerings — that only the Touring Club of Italy can provide. Illustrated throughout with graphics, maps, and photos from the TCI archives, this guidebook showcases Sicily's breathtaking scenery, from golden beaches and majestic mountains to lush inland forests and endless groves of olives and almonds. Detailed maps and information allow travelers to discover Sicily at their own pace. The guide also provides extensive advice on visiting Mt. Etna, with a variety of activities and excursions for hikers and skiers.
