Take me with you too. I am a sicilian
Lots of relatives there.
Palermo and Erice are interesting destinations (Erice/Eryx is magnificent, you will have a splendid view at sunset on the bay of Trapani), while heading to Trapani/Erice try stopping at the greek temple of Segesta.
In the inlands of Palermo, you might be interested in dropping by Piana degli Albanesi, an albanian-speaking greek-orthodox community present since the 15th century. fyi, most of albanians from albania are muslims since the expansion of the Ottoman Empire.
You might be interested also in the coastal city of Cefalu near Palermo. And of course, please do not miss the fabled Monreale. It is so wonderful....
Ah, I already start missing Sicily!
In the immediate vicinity of Monreale is the Abbey of San Martino delle Scale, where, when I was a little kid, my family was menacing me to seclude me when I was being a bad boy
You should visit it if you have time, it's beautiful!
Like Nico said, the rural/inner Sicily is interesting because you will find that people are not so much affected by the modernism and its bad sides. Siracusa is one of *the* places to see if you are into greek history, definitely the greatest and most beautiful city of "Magna Graecia".
Btw Nico, grazie per le gentile parole, cumpa' !
