Eric Sylvers has worked as a journalist and writer for more than a decade in Italy, where he has written about everything from the country's economic woes to bike racing.

    Highly recommended-take it with you!

    Focusing on a region instead of a whole country allows the writer to go into detail on small villages and into depth on the larger cities. Enjoyable reading with tips and human interest commentaries that blend the pictorial and narrative best selling guides. Also- for fellow book lovers-the pages feel classy, not cheap. This is the one I will take on my trip to the Veneto next spring.
