Needing help

by peppi

Hi Guys, My husband and I are traveling to Italy in Feb2009, we will be staying in Florence for a week or so then want to go to sicilia for about two weeks, I am unsure of the best way to reach sicily what to see other than the volcano, and should we stay in one place then venture out or travel around, We will not be driving and we are not back packing this holiday. Any advise greatly appreciated. Should we visit Calabria on the way down, We do not want an organised bus trip, we are able to do this on our own, with advise from V'rits. thanks

In June 2006 we stayed a week at Giardini Naxos which is central east coast Sicilia with easy train/bus access to the local tourist sites. Later spent a week at Lipari Island. (Two active volcanoes in one trip : Etna & Stromboli) again using public transport.
We rented apartments found on the web in both places. Prices in these locations more affordable that alternatives such as Taormina or Panarea island.
We flew into Catania Airport from Milan on one of the el cheapo airlines; took train to Milazzo; ferry to Lipari; and high speed cat to Napoli at the end of the two weeks. You may find that ferry services are curtailed during Feb so islands may not be best choice. A shift to another apartment in the west or central Sicilia perhaps??

We've just spent a wonderful 10 days in Sicily - 2 weeks would have been even better. We began our stay in Syracuse and picked up a hire car when we were ready to leave - a car in Syracuse is a pain especially if you are staying on the island of Ortygia - but you could catch buses between places and then use local transport. We caught the train from Rome, 11 hours but loved it - a day to relax, watch the scenery, read, snooze and no airport hassles - perfect after a full-on week week in Rome. You could take a look at the pages I've written on Sicily if you're interested in seeing how we organized our time - the tips pretty much follow the way we went around the island. You should definitely consider moving around a bit - otherwise you'll be spending a lot of time on autostrada travelling to and from your daily destinations.

Travel Tips for Palermo

FOOD

by ruki

The typical aromas of Sicilian cooking can be smelt all over Palermo, not just in the restaurants but in the city streets and squares, where the kiosks still prepare and serve panelle (fried chickpea pancakes) and crocchette (croquette potatoes) to passers-by.
Once very tasty example is pasta con le sarde, a recipe made with simple ingredients but which is served in even the most luxurious restaurants in Palermo. This is a very tasty first course, made with wild fennel, fresh sardines, anchovies, saffron, sultanas and pine-nuts. Panelle are also a typical Palermo dish: rectangular snacks made with chickpea flour, salt, pepper and parsley, fried in vegetable oil and served in the open-air kiosks. Other typical “street” snacks are sfincione, a kind of pizza topped with tomato, anchovies and onion, and pani c’a meusa, a sandwich filled with spleen.

Forza Palermo!

by CliffClaven

Like everyone in Italy, the Palermitani take their football seriously, especially now that their team is back at the top level of Italian soccer and plays againsts the famous teams from Rome, Milan and Turin. Even if you don't go to a match, you can sense something of the fervour and the passion if you stand on Via Roma after a game and watch as the buses transporting visiting fans to the station race past with an escort of police cars and jeeps, with lights blazing and sirens screaming.

Chiesa di San Domenico

by Paisleypaul

Chiesa di San Domenico is just of Via Roma, at, naturally, Piazza San Domenico.

I always like the art and craftsmanship and skill that went into these churches, especially nice to step out of the ferragosto Sun for a while !

Find it at the very top of the Vucciria market. We had a many-days knack of only passing when this one was closed!

Capital of Sicily

by Jenelle7

"Beautiful Capital"

Palermo is the capital of Sicily and what an impression it makes.
It is really beautiful and much cleaner and less crowded than the rest of Italy.
We spent our last days in Italy in Palermo, and it was a wonderful way to end our holiday.
The weather was great and the people are all so friendly and helpful. We spent most of the time eating and sleeping, and Palermo has some of the best seafood I have ever tasted.
Palermo really is a must see when travelling to Italy
