The current growth of tourism to Sicily is so great, and the need for easily-consulted travel information so acute, that guidebooks to Sicily are presently appearing on numerous lists of travel best-sellers. Frommer's Shortcut Sicily will surely be among the most popular sources of recommendations and advice on this uniquely-Italian experience. From the museums, marketplaces and cathedral churches of Palermo to the mountain-side resorts and nightlife of Taormina, from the ancient Greek temples of Agrigento to the Roman-era culture, statues and streets of Siracusa, our Shortcut Guide covers them all in colorful (and intensely practical) prose.
