Sicily - Tyrrhenian Coast (PDF Chapter)
This is the Tyrrhenian Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sicily guidebook.
The coastal stretch between Palermo and Milazzo is packed with dramatic beach and moun-tain scenery, and appealing coastal towns like Cefalù and Castel di Tusa – but once summer rolls around, it’s holiday central, characterised by crowded roads and beaches.

- relive the glory days of Italy’s greatest road race in Collesano’s Museo Targa Florio
- while away a chilly mountain evening by the blazing fire in a pizzeria in Petralia Sopra-na
