Palermo Termini Imerese Guide

The town of Termini Imerese is located in the Province of Palermo, on the north coast of Sicily in southern Italy. Located around 40 km to the east of the city of Palermo, the site of Termini Imerese has been inhabited since pre-historic times. Over recent decades many artefacts have been excavated which dates the town's recorded origins to 409 BC when Himera, its more ancient neighbour, was completely destroyed by the Carthaginian army under Hannibal Mago.

Apart from a hilltop fortress and a few fragments of Roman architecture, little of the town's ancient history remain. There is not a great deal for visitors to see in the town although the museum in the town does contain a few finds from the Arab-period. The town is also close to the Himera archaeological site which is about 5 km to the east of Termini Imerese in a coastal plain at the mouth of the Imera River. The town is also a good reference point on the way to Caccamo Castle which is about 14 km to the south, located up a winding mountain road.

From the town's small port ferries depart to Civitavecchia on the Italian mainland.

Civitavecchia Guide

The Italian city of Civitavecchia lies on the Tyrrhenian Sea coast in the Lazio region of the country. The city, which is home to just under 60,000 residents, is home to a cruise and ferry port and is located around 80 km to the north west of Rome. The city can trace its port's history back over one thousand years to 101-108 AD, when the Emperor Trajan ordered the port of Centumcellae to be built in order to accommodate deepwater shipping for the Roman capital. After this period, they fell under the rule of a number of different Counts and Popes.

In the city visitors will find examples of restored medieval and Baroque structures which includes the large Forte Michelangelo which is a fortress that was commissioned by pope Giulio II in the early 16th century and the 17th century defensive walls behind the port. The wall forms one side of the Lungoporto Gramsci which is an elevated pedestrian walkway. From here there are excellent views to be had of the cruise ships and ferry basins in the port.

Car and passenger ferries link Civitavecchia to Sardinia, Sicily, and other destinations within Italy and abroad.
