Palermo, Sicily, Italy
The capital of Sicily (Palermo), this splendid city echoes the grace and grandeur of another age with its remarkable Norman and baroque architecture. Monte Pellegrino has seen many visitors, from Phoenicians to Cathaginians to Saracens and Normans. Their architectural influences are everywhere. In the 12th century, this was the greatest city in Europe, although it never really felt like Europe - even today there's an eastern flavor to Palermo. From the Baroques Quattro Canti (Four Corners), wander in any direction and go back a century or a thousand years. And be sure to sample the sweet fruit shaped marzipans made by the nuns of Martorana.

At sea


Salerno, Italy
Salerno, one of the most beautiful cities in the south of Italy, is situated along the inlet of the Tyrrenian Sea on the Gulf of Salerno. Cultured and refined, the old city is a web of alleyways and grand palaces.

The Cathedral, known as 'Duomo', is the pride of the city (built c.1085) and is dedicated to the patron saint, St Matthew. On the right side of the Duomo atrium you can see a 12th century bell-tower. Also of interest is the medieval aqueduct, built in the 9th century and later reinforced by the Normans around 1000.

Take a walk along pleasant streets to window shop in elegant boutiques, and enjoy the passing scene at one of the quiet cafes. Via Dei Mercanti, the old artery of commerce, is crossed by Via Del Duomo where, situated on the right side, is the magnificent Church of St George and adjacent is the cathedral.

There is an abundance of restaurants in town, but an ideal place for a snack and a drink is down on the promenade Lungomare Trieste. Adorned with palms, it is a beautiful spot to admire the Gulf of Salerno and the Amalfi Coast, one of the most famous tourist attractions in the south of Italy.
