Overview

NOW IN FULL COLOR!

Insider advice on avoiding the crowds as you explore some of Italy's greatest gems, from the Uffizi in Florence to the Vatican Museum in Rome, and from the ruins at Pompeii to Venice's St. Mark's basilica. Plus tips for navigating the country's lovely but less-traveled corners, like the Marches, the Dolomites, and even Sardinia.

Where to find the absolute best seafood in Venice, the loveliest vineyards in Tuscany, the tastiest pizza in Naples, and, of course, the finest gelato that Italy has to offer.

Insightful commentary on Italy's dazzling array of art and architectural masterpieces, from Michelangelo's statue of David to the glories of St. Peter's in Rome.

Opinionated write-ups. 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.

All Complete guides offer 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.

    Buy the e-book version from AMAZON not B&N!

    I wish I could rate this book but I have not been able to down load it on any of my computers or on to to my i-pod since I purchased it 5 days ago. B&N did charged my credit card. I have purchased several e-books from B&N and never had any problem.

    I have sent two e-mails to the B&N Help Desk and I received one automated reply that someone from B&N would contact me within 48 hours, which has not happened. I even went to a B&N store to see if someone could help me, even though they were very nice about the situation, they could not help me. Hopefully my experience will spare others from this aggravation.

    I am going to try AMAZON for my future e-book purchases. I guess there is a reason that I see plenty of people with Kindles and no one with Nooks.
