From the cover: From the point of view of the tourist, it has been said that Sicily can claim to be the worlds most beautiful and interesting island. Certainly it is one of the most rewarding regions of Italy, offering a quite remarkable variety of architectural, scenic, historical, artistic and general interest. Here Anthony Pereira, who knows Sicily intimately, does ample justice to all these themes. Having surveyed the colourful and turbulent history of the island, he presents an informative and sensitive account of the towns and villages, landscape and monuments, that will so richly repay a visit. He describes in detail the sights to be seen in Palermo, Messina, Catania, Cefalu, Taormina, Syracuse and the many other fascinating places along the coastline and inland. The result is a book that, with its 25 exciting and atmospheric photographs some of them taken by the author himself will be greatly welcomed by those wise enough to visit Sicily as well as by the armchair traveller at home.
