Description


Travel at its best meets culture and its history first hand at street level on shoeleather. These Sicilian walks meet that criterion. Take this book in hand. Use it to enjoy a unique travel experience. Let it guide you through a region that for millennia lent primary impulses to world history while sorting out a destiny of its own. The Two Sicilies even today are a world apart in mood. Europe seems left behind. The feel of the place is that different. Imagine a cultural recipe that blends the flavors of North Africa, Europe and the Middle East. Mix nuances of the Nile Valley and Old Athens with a bit of Byzantium and the Holy Land. Fold in a spiritual sense that combines something of Mont Saint Michel and the Dome of the Rock. Here is a travel book that captures all that as a personal discovery, leading you step by step through one of the most fascinating experiences of a lifetime of travel.
