Overview

Insight Step by Step Sicily is the perfect travel guide to this popular Italian island, showing you where to go and what to do in 14 beautifully illustrated walks and tours. Easy-to-follow full-color maps accompany the routes, and there’s travel advice on places to eat and drink along the way.
Our well known cultural focus highlights Sicily’s rich history, from some of the best preserved Greek temples in the world (even better than in Greece) to the legacy of the Arabs and Normans. Discover the pleasures of Sicilian food and wine, with its abundance of regional dishes, street food and famous pastries.

Discover the best route up Mount Etna, and the best views from the top, the volcanic Aeolian Islands, and how to see the smoking crater of Stromboli.
