Sicily - Central Sicily (PDF Chapter)
This is the Central Sicily chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sicily guidebook.
Sicily’s wild, empty interior is a beautiful, uncompromising land, a timeless landscape of si-lent, sunburnt peaks, grey stone villages and forgotten valleys. It’s encourages simple pleasures – long lunches of earthy country food, meanders through hilltop towns, quiet contemplation over undulating vistas.
- admire ancient artistry and creativity at Villa Romana del Casale, a decadent Roman villa home to the most extraordinary Roman tile work in existence
- tackle Sicily’s most spectacular staircase in Caltagirone, then stock up on the town’s na-tionally renowned ceramics
- sit on the very steps where ancient Greeks once debated, conspired and gossiped in Mor-gantina
Coverage includes: Enna, Calascibetta, Nicosia, Piazza Armerina, Villa Romana del Casale, Caltagirone.
