    Overview

  • Full-color throughout
  • Free full-color, foldout map
  • Where to find the absolute best seafood, the loveliest vineyards, the tastiest pizza, and, of course, the finest gelato. Our writers have checked out all the best hotels and restaurants in person. You'll also get up-to-the-minute coverage of shopping and nightlife.
  • Insider advice on avoiding the crowds as you explore some of Italy's greatest gems, from the Uffizi in Florence to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Plus tips for navigating the region's lovely but less-traveled corners, like Arezzo, Elba, and Montefalco.
  • Opinionated reviews. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writers are passionate about their destinations--they tell it like it is in an engaging and helpful way.
  • Exact prices listed for every establishment and activity--no other guides offer such detailed, candid reviews of hotels and restaurants. We include the very best, but also emphasize moderately priced choices for real people.
  • User-friendly features including star ratings and special icons to point readers to great finds, excellent values, insider tips, best bets for kids, special moments, and overrated experiences.
