Item description for Authentic Sicily (Authentic Italy) by Touring Club of Italy...
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.

Authentic Sicily Sep 8, 2007
I bought this book with the hope that it would be a guide to the towns we visited much like a Michelin guide. Although there were alot of good pieces of information it did not meet my needs.
Great resource with itineraries developed by Italians Jul 24, 2007
The Touring Club of Italy is well-known for its focus on natural, cultural, culinary, and historical itineraries. This guidebook is very well written, perfect for pre-travel planning and to carry with you during your trip as well. Great for off-the-beaten path itineraries and do-it-yourself travelers. The Touring Club offers guidebooks for each region of Italy, and for those of you who don't know, that's the best way to see Italy: region by region, NOT all in one single trip! So, find out which regions you want to see first by giving these books a read and finding out which area is more ideal for your vacation.
