Reviews - What do customers think about Sicily: A Complete Guide to the Island, Its Towns, Monuments, and Incomparable Landscapes (Heritage Guides)?

So-So  Aug 16, 2005
I didn't really use this book very much -- It was accurate, but very dry and the book only describes locations by their Italian names without reference to how it is pronounced in English which made it difficult to use.
Looks good in print!  Jul 25, 2005
I like the format and content of this guide. It seems to cover the most important sites and details of many Sicilian towns and cities that I will visit in Feb '06. I look forward to taking it with me and trying it out!
Wonderfully Informative  Aug 31, 2000
This guide is extremely helpful in planning a trip to Sicily. It is also an excellent source of information for anyone interested in the beautiful island and its culture.

Many already popular attractions are covered as well as some lesser known ones. For a traveler seeking to get off the "beaten path" this guide will offer some good ideas on where to find less popular, but equally beautiful, areas of the island.

The extensive history of the island and its towns will appeal to history buffs and make the trip much more interesting.

This guide is a wonderful addition to any Sicily lover's library. Through its fascinating text and pictures, a new appreciation for this culturally rich island will be formed.
