Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
04/15/2014
Whether the tickets have been purchased and the bags have been packed, or the prospect of a European tour is a far-off fantasy, this book is a wonderful resource for planning that dream trip. The guide provides an introduction to the historical, cultural, and artistic underpinnings of Italian civilization, from its roots in the Roman Empire to the present. But Italy was only unified as a country in the late 1800s and so offerings vary widely from region to region. DK represents this fact skillfully with subguides to regional highlights and detailed sections on major cities such as Rome, Florence, and Venice, along with brief spotlights of smaller cities. The major focus in any DK guide is on art, architecture, and cultural attractions, and this work delivers with annotated cut-away guides to sumptuous churches, historic neighborhoods, and Roman ruins as well as full-color photos of art, sculpture, and scenic vistas. For visualizing where to go and what to see, this volume is ideal; for exact details on getting there and practical concerns once you've arrived (eating, shopping), other titles or Internet resources might have more up-to-the-minute information. VERDICT A beautiful, detailed resource to start planning the perfect trip to Italy.—Emilia Packard, Austin, TX

    You want to go to Italy right away after reading this book

    This is a wonderful book of exploring most of the regions in Italy with colorful pictures. The pictures are truly appealing. The only drawback is it won't explore the city in detail more than 2 paragraphs, you need another guidebook to get a full grip of the history of churches, monuments.... As far as travel is concerned, I normally read the DK Eyewitness Guide along with the Dummies series. DK Eyewitness is for the pictures, so I know exactly what I am looking for. The 'Dummies series' are for the details.
