    Room with a View?

    This book was originally written in 1969 and so its use as a travel aide now is limited. Alot has changed in the past 10 years. It is a lovely read for someone in love with Italy and enjoys reading about experiences there. It's more literary than travelogue. Recommended for Italophiles only.
