at its best meets culture and its history first-hand at street level
on shoe leather. These Sicilian walks meet that criterion.
Traveler's Two Sicilies...
Given the selected setting,
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 always
seemed near to, and often precisely on, the cutting edge of culture in
the throes of invention. That made for "interesting times" for
Sicilians, ponderous tomes for egghead historians, and fascinating
travel for us. ...
In this guide to that extraordinary land, do not
expect a compendium of listings and pointings typical of most
guidebooks. This is a book of do-it-yourself tours presented in
narrative form. The narratives describe, step by step, walks and
motoring excursions along selected routes through a sequence of cities
and nearby points of interest. Each tour is an encounter with culture
and history met as an experience of places and things.
