While searching for travel books about Sicily
I came across another of Marlena De Blasi's books.
Her Tuscany book I really enjoyed, Venice not as much.
"Summer In Sicily" was a good read, the folk lore and history
very alluring, sometimes sad. All in all I feel I know alittle
more about the Island of Sicily and it's people.


  1. We enjoyed a three week holiday on Sicily in the 80's. It was wonderful!

  2. All those med' islands are magical. Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily; and even the Balearic's. Probably all best visited in Spring or Autumn when not too hot or crowded.

  3. Were going to Sicily in Dec. would love to hear any suggestions of places to visit. Were staying in Syracuse.Can't wait!
