Italy-Sicily

Sicily has a wonderful combination of history and scenery (and food).  Greek culture has left its imprint architecturally along with the Normans in western Sicily. One could wander endlessly in the historic areas such as Ortigia in Siracusa, Cefalu and Erice. Marvelous cathedrals of all types draw attention with the Cappella Palatina in particular, a not to be missed opportunity.
