Sicily - Mediterranean Coast (PDF Chapter)
This is the Mediterranean Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sicily guidebook.
Sicily’s Mediterranean coast is a mixed bag. Spectacular natural sights compete with unsightly development for prominence, resulting in an odd air in places. Head west for wilder, unspoilt countryside, sandy beaches and the spectacular Scala dei Turchi chalk cliffs.
- marvel at the genius of the ancient Greeks as you wander among Agrigento’s spectacular ruins at Valley of the Temples
- get an alternative take on Sicilian culture at Farm Cultural Park, an innovative art ‘neighbourhood’ in Favara
- dance through the streets accompanied by giant papier-mâché puppets at Sciacca’s flamboyant carnival, Sciaccarnevale
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Agrigento, Favara, Valley of the Temples, Lampedusa, Beaches & Beauty Spots, Eraclea Minoa, Sciacca, Caltabellotta, Licata, Falconara, Gela and Butera & Mazzarino.
