There is enough material in this book for several holidays. For those touring Sicily by car, the eight car tours (mostly circular and covering 2000 km) follow little-used secondary roads wherever possible. But note that the book does not cover a very small part of the island: the far southwest.
If you're walking in Sicily, the routes are as varied in length and grade as the landscape itself ? a distillation of the best on the island.
The best months for walking in Sicily are March to June and September/October.
This guide is part of the Landscapes Series, with 50 destinations ? dubbed ?the blue Bibles? by the Sunday Times and chosen by readers of Which? as one of the four top travel guide series (from a field of 18).
No holiday would be complete without one of these guides. In fact it has got to the point of seeing what destinations are covered and planning our next trip accordingly. Very much more than just a walk book. Sicily is a stunner scenically. (AL, Amazon)
Good old Sunflowers, those thin blue books that walkers on the Continent trust like seasoned friends from Sicily to the Azores ? they never fail to find you a really good walk. (Christopher Somerville, Weekend Telegraph)
I purchased this guide having previously used the excellent Sunflower series on walking holidays in Corsica, Picos de Europa and the Azores. The format is excellent: a pocket size book with small maps embedded in each walk's description, and a larger pull-out map at the back showing the location of the walk. Highly recommended.

This is our 9th Sunflower book and all of them have been very useful in not only finding good walks but in discovering interesting sights. The walks we did in this book such as Zingaro and Piano Battaglia were excellent... The book has proven its worth in helping us find different approaches to viewing areas overrun with tourists such as Segeste where the walk gave us a different perspective to the norm.
