Additional Location Information
All the ancient civilizations that succeeded in conquering Sicily left behind an outstanding heritage of artistic achievement. Visit the extraordinary and unique Greek site of Segesta, with its Doric temple and amphitheatre situated in pristine countryside, standing alone in tranquil beauty amidst nature. A little further, is the enclave of Erice with its delightful medieval ambience and breathtaking hilltop location, filled with castles, churches and winding cobbled streets. The capital, Palermo, is less than a 1 hour drive but do not go with an itinerary; no map does justice to a city so colonized, yet so proud of its identity.
There's no other Italian city quite like it. Palermo is an urban paradox. Life in this unique city can be challenging, though most Palermitans seem to have adapted well. However, Palermo remains a jewel of the Mediterranean. No visit to Sicily is ever complete without a visit to Palermo, a city that permits one not just to know the island but also to begin to understand it. Considered one of the most conquered cities, you will find the most interesting juxtapositions - a baroque church in the street market, aristocratic palazzos that withstood WWII bombings, and architectural heritage of Norman, Arabic, and Byzantine influences.
This north coastline is filled with magnificent inlets, unspoiled bays and splendid beaches and the spectacular Zingaro nature reserve, a seven kilometer long line of magnificent grottoes, low reefs and fantastic sandy coves. Do not forget to hire boats or to hop on one of the boat excursions offered along the coast past the Zingaro. From Trapani you can take a ferry and visit the three exotic Egadi Islands. Sicily is at its finest out of season, in spring or October when the crowds have eased and the temperature has dipped slightly. It marks the time of the traditional grape or olive harvest, while throughout the year one of the greatest attractions of visiting this western tip is the prospect of sampling exceptionally good regional wines in and around Marsala.
And speaking about Marsala, along the road that runs from Trapani to Marsala it is possible to see numerous dazzlingly white mountains, shimmering in the sun. These are hills of salt, one of the Sicilian economy's historical resources. The tourist paths for visits to the salt flats wind their way around the great basins and finally reach the mounds of salt. These mounds are topped by a series of recently restored windmills that recall the days when they were among the main instruments for pumping the water and grinding the salt. We strongly suggest arriving there for the sunset (when everything becomes tinged with red) and enjoying a cold drink at the bar next to the Salt Museum.
Kursaal Kalhesa For a different nightlife experience, you may want to check Kursaal Kalhesa, located in the heart of the city and at the same time in front of the sea. This place is more than a night life spot with a great interior design and vibrant atmosphere; in fact it also offers great quality services: a library, a restaurant, wine bar, internet point, a concert site and also a tourist information office. Situated in an old palazzo near the port, this is where Palermo youth come to see and to be seen. Not to be missed. Foro Umberto I, Tel 091 616 2282
Ai Vecchietti Favorite among the locals, typical regional food, nice atmosphere and reasonably priced. It is located near the Politeama Theater, so it is great for dinner after strolling the historical center of the city. Piazza S.Oliva 10 Tel 091 58 5606
Antica Focacceria di San Francesco While the pizza was born in Naples, the focaccia was invented in Sicily. Try these warm sandwiches at this local bakery that still uses century old cast iron ovens. This is also a good place for sandwiches with sliced veal speen and caciocavallo cheese, or a selection of fried appetizers, the fritto misto – Not to be missed is their Gelo Melone (watermelon jello) – Via Alessandro Paternostro 58 – Tel 091 32 02 64
