Walking in Sicily - 46 walking routes incl. Mt Etna - Cicerone Press

This guidebook includes 46 walks throughout Sicily and the adjoining Aeolian and Egadi Islands. Sicily’s stunning range of scenery, combined with its Mediterranean climate, good transport and age-old pathways make it the ideal walking destination. This guidebook leads walkers along river valleys, past ancient ruins and up to volcanoes and mountain peaks. The walking includes Mount Etna, the Madonie and Nebrodi mountains and the Egadi and Aeolian islands.

This guidebook combines detailed route description and mapping with fascinating insight into the history and geology of Sicily and the many points of interest along the way. Whether the active volcanic rumblings of Stromboli, or elaborate coastal forts, to prehistoric cave paintings; Sicily is home to some of Europe's greatest natural and historical wonders.

There are both short and long distance routes that range from 3 to 23km in length so there is a route to suit all abilities. The routes vary considerably due to the terrain covered in each walk and are graded from 1 to 3. Grade 1 refers to an easy stroll that is suitable for all, Grade 2 is a little strenuous with reasonable distances and/or climbs and drops involved which require a basic level of fitness and Grade 3 is akin to an alpine trek. The latter may involve occasional problems with orientation as well as exposed or particularly arduous stretches so some experience and extra care is recommended along with suitable equipment.

Includes practical information on the best time to go to Sicily, getting there, as well as accommodation advice and information on facilities along the way
a useful Italian-English glossary
fully stocked with mapping for each walk, as well as imspiring colour photography.
