    Comprehensive, but not easiest to use

    I know I'll appreciate how much lighter the Nook edition is compared to the print edition when I'm strolling around Venice, but it's not as easy to use as I'd like, mainly because of the limitations of the Search function. The Table of Contents can narrow your search from "Northern Italy," to "The Veneto," to "Padua," where you can then go to sections on "Where to Stay" or "Where to DIne." That's useful. But if I search for "Padua" it gives every mention of the word "Padua" in the book--not helpful. But if I search "Padua hotels," which should be pretty basic, I get nothing. They need to work on that for next year.

    Still, you get great Fodor information with nice maps--a ton of information in a very small package.

    I bought the Nook version and found it hard to use. The maps are very small; finding a specific historic site took lots of page turning. Even using the "search" function did not help. I would suggest buying the print version. The information in the book was very helpful, just not as accessible as I had hoped on the Nook.
