    On our recent trip to Italy, we have relied on the insight and abundance of historical information to make our trip memorable with our 12 years old son.
    This book was written with a very personal perspective and admirable passion towards the many gems that this incredible country can offer for the traveller interested to learn about the history, the art, and beyond. 
    Strongly recommended for those who look for a guidebooks that is beyond the cookie-cutter approach, or simply enjoy learning new things about a country whose inhabitants and conquerors profoundly influenced human civilization.
