Overview

From the well-known author of Paris: City of Light and Louis XIV comes a captivating and comprehensive guide to Sicily.

The Golden Honeycomb is today regarded as one of the classic travel I books-it is also, forty years after it was written, an indispensable guide to Sicily. The title refers to the golden honeycomb which Daedalus is said to have offered to Aphrodite in return for his escape from King Minos to Crete. Vincent Cronin traveled throughout Sicily, observing its tombs and temples, its medieval treasures and baroque splendor, its desolate valleys and teeming piazzas, and describes them here with affection and erudition. This first Harvill paperback edition contains 32 pages of specially commissioned black-and-white photographs by Werner Forman.
