I have been to Italy several times, but never visited Sicily, but on this trip I plan on doing just that. I wanted to make sure that I would have the most recent information on pricing and quality for lodging, eating, shopping, and sight seeing, so I made sure to get this Eyewitness Travel Guide! I was not disappointed. It makes my planning so much easier and its handy size makes it easy to take along with me. I found it particularly helpful when it came to choosing the region of Sicily that has the best beaches! I highly recommend it.
