Overview

Compiled by expert travel writers, based full- or part-time in the countries and regions they write about, DK's new Back Roads series uses in-depth local knowledge to create driving tours full of original ideas for activities, off-the-beaten-track stops, and authentically 'native' places to eat and to stay. Taking travelers off the main roads and into the real life of a country, each title in DK's new Eyewitness Back Roads series contains up to 25 drive routes lasting from one to seven days. From intimate hotels and guesthouses to the most charming restaurants and bars specializing in seasonal dishes and regional produce, each drive has recommendations for places to spend the night, dine, and sightsee along the route.

A companion series to the Eyewitness Travel Guides, the books can be used in conjunction with existing guides or on their own. Each guide has a pull-out road map for easy navigation between drives and all the practical information you need, from road conditions and the length of the drive to parking information and opening hours of restaurants and attractions.

By creating these wonderful new books, the Back Roads Guides! I never travel the world without a Dorling Kindersley Eyewitness Travel Guide in my pack. In fact I have collected over 60 of them over the years if not for research and inspiration, but for armchair travel as well. I have been anticipating these guidebooks and finally saw Back Roads to Italy and Back Roads to Spain on the shelves here in North America and believe me they do not disappoint. As easy to navigate as the Eyewitness Guides, these books inspire, motivate, excite and educate. My mind swims with inspiration while reading this book, which naturally leads to questions. All I need do is turn the page and I have solid information for which to answer those questions and plan my travels. One thing worth mentioning- I would definitely couple this with the Eyewitness Guides while traveling. Just as one would not dare think of getting rid of their souvenir/travel guides, one would not want to part with this book either. Gorgeous and informative, DK continues to lead the pack in travel guide excellence!
