    Guidebook for everything with easy index!

    I updated my Fodor's with this new version and find it easy to use for restaurants, hotels, walking tours, and suggested itineraries for the length of stay we have planned. We usually agree with their ratings and, through Fodor's, found our favorite home-away-from-home on the island of Ischia ten years ago. We return there each year. If we are doing a self-guided tour of a city, I take Fodor's in my tote. My only comment with this 2010 version is that there are fewer listings under each city/area for hotels and restaurants. I don't know if this is because some of the previous listings did not rate their continued approval, or because Fodor's simply didn't want to publish a guidebook more than 960 pages.
