From the furious fireworks of Mount Etna to the plunging cliffs and turquoise bays, Sicily is endowed with breathtaking natural beauty. The largest island in the Mediterranean at the cusp of Europe and Africa, it is strewn with haunting reminders of long-gone civilizations, including the Greek city of Selinute strung out along the clifftops, and the glittering mosaics of the Norman Cappella Palatina. Nature has been generous to the Sicilians, and the straggling villages are lost in the forests of hazelnuts, olives and lemon trees. Take off and discover all this and more with Footprint's full-colour guide, including a unique standalone Popout map.
