Overview

Unforgettable artwork, heavenly villages, island paradises, dream cities...there are so many reasons to visit Italy that deciding where to go and what to do can be a bit overwhelming. Fodor's Essential Italy takes the guesswork out of choosing the perfect Italian experiences by compiling the top choices chosen by Fodor’s army of Italy-based writers.

Expanded Coverage: 
A major benefit of the long-running best-seller, Fodor’s Italy, was a bequest to Fodor’s Essential Italy from its cornucopia of restaurant, hotel, nightlife, shops, and attractions reviews, all curated and newly honed to spice up this Essential edition.

Illustrated Features:
 Hundreds of lively images throughout the guide add momentum to the enchantments found throughout Italy. The visual impact of these photos is doubly enhanced by ten in-depth, magazine-style articles highlighting Italy’s top attractions, including Rome’s imperial ruins; Barolo’s wine country; Venice’s Grand Canal; Fashionista Milan; a Who’s Who of Renaissance Art in Florence; the Sistine Chapel Ceiling; the frescoes at the Basilica of St. Francis; villas by the great Palladio; and more.

Indispensable Trip Planning Tools:
 The major attractions of the big three—Rome, Venice, and Florence—are given at-a-glance treatment, alongside top itineraries, Best Bets for restaurants and lodging, and what to do whether on your own or with the kids. Our user-friendly "Experience" chapter helps in planning for the most memorable trip, cueing you in to Top Attractions, Top Experiences, Italy Today, What's New, and a multitude of other information. Easy-to-scan recommendations run the gamut from alfresco dining in Venice to the art treasures of Florence; how to trek the Cinque Terre; and where to find the best beaches along the Amalfi Coast.

Discerning Recommendations:  
Fodor’s Essential Italy offers savvy advice and recommendations from local writers to help travelers make the most of their time. Fodor’s Choice designates our best picks, from hotels to nightlife. “Word of Mouth” quotes from fellow travelers provide valuable insights.

TripAdvisor Reviews:
  Our experts’ hotel selections are reinforced by the latest customer feedback from TripAdvisor. Travelers can book their Italy stay with confidence, as only the best properties make the cut.

On-the-Go Map:
Handy take-along companion maps of Rome and Venice give travelers essential information about top attractions, walking tours, and nearby dining so they can travel with confidence.

    Very much recommended

    Excelent recommnedations. What the book tells you is what you will find in the places you visit. The only thing missing are the maps. You can not increase the size to view them better.

    Great travel guide

    I loved this book. We used it as a travel guide
    and it took us to a ton of touristy locations. Definitely recommend.
    Will use this same group for an Ireland trip we're planning!

    Great book highlighting exactly what the book promises - the essential! I also appreciated the fact that it was more compact than others considering I was going to quite a few places across Italy. What the book lacked in details it certainly made it in size!
