People have been arriving on Sicily's shores for millennia, merging their cultures and lifestyles together - Greeks, Romans, Arabs, North Africans, Spaniards and others. The sea is never very far away you can see it from almost every mountain.
With Marco Polo Sicily you can explore an island world of immense interest and variety. At every turn you can discover something new in this fabulous holiday destination. The practical pocket-sized guide provides a close-up look of lemon-scented gardens, rugged volcanic landscapes and lively piazzas, all of it set amidst the ancient and the modern against a backdrop of glorious scenery.
The Discovery Tours reveal the island in all its diversity, taking you to the nicest stretches of coast and through the melancholic capital Palermo; into bastions of the Baroque and on the trail of the ancients. The Best Of pages highlight what is currently in vogue in Sicily - rural and sustainable holidays for example, and recommend things to do for free, have tips for rainy days and where you can unwind. Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you re on a tight budget.
The Insider Tips reveal where the Mafia had their hideouts and where you can watch flamingos up close, while the Sports & Activities chapter details various options including riding, windsurfing, paragliding and even skiing. Last but not least the Dos and Don'ts explain why the Menu turistico isn't worth it and why you should keep all your receipts. Marco Polo Sicily provides comprehensive coverage of all parts of the island.
To help you find your way around there's the detailed Road Atlas, useful maps of Catania, Palermo, Taormina and Trapani in the cover, plus the pull-out map. A must-have for all travellers.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
