I used this book exclusively for a trip to Sicily in April 2011.

We're definitely planning on visiting them, and checked out most of the tour and travel guides.

This book helped me in practically every way. I went from Palermo to Milazzo to Alicudi to Messina to Taormina to Catania. And the book had ample information for every situation I found myself in. It was most helpful to me when I was traveling. The information on how to physically get from place to place (trains, buses, ferries, taxis) is what I used the most. Get a map from the local tourist office; the book tells you where they all are. Also, I saw a ton of people with the same book! Must be a popular guide.

Of course, I learned more about Sicily by seeing and doing than by reading, but this book is a great reference to have. Highly recommended.

This is the best book that I have bought for my Sicily trip. Covers all the little details like where exactly to park in Taormina (and how much will this cost?)or Trapani, and shows you where on the map. Covers where the restaurants are in smaller towns that you might visit that other books just ignor. Unlike the Blue Guide, it is arranged in a logical fashion to find the info that you need. It has maps with the exact location of sights that are supposed to be a must see, but where are they exactly? like the Giudecca palace in Trapani

I've been to Sicily before but it has been a long time since my last visit. This guide captured many of my memories nicely and gave me plenty of new ideas of what to do when I get there. I recommend this guide to anyone going to Sicily.

I recently took this guide book with me on a trip to Sicily and it was outstanding. The maps were great, the recommendations for what to see were spot on, and even the suggestions for restaurants hit the right note. There is lots of good info about what to do in terms of planning your trip before you arrive that was very useful as well. This book is definitely worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Sicily.

From personal experience, the one thing that I would recommend to anyone traveling to Sicily in addition to this book, particularly if they are going to stay in or visit Palermo with a car, is to have a good map of the transition from the autostrada into the city. The exits off the highway are not well marked, and traveling between the highway and the city center in Palermo I found to be not trivial. I had both this book and the Michelin map of Sicily, but neither covered that critical region (only a few kms) between the highway and the city center and I ended up driving around Palermo unnecessarily.
