Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Is there anything of consequence not included in an Insight Guide? Two of the newest additions to the series will take you through the lovely lake region of northern Italy with ease and an abundance of information. A potential first-time visitor will want the larger book, rather than the Step by Step, as it is dense with text, color photographs, and maps. The contents cover history, art, architecture, wildlife, top sights, castles, wine and oil routes, rock art, the silk industry, places to stay, restaurants and bars, nightlife, annual events, shopping, celebrity residents, and more. Although there's much coverage of the region's more than a half-dozen lakes, Lake Como and Lake Garda being the most familiar, there's also extensive information about the lake country cities of Verona, Lugano, and Milan. Smaller in size, but equally crammed with all the features expected from an Insight Guide, Italian Lakes Step by Step has 18 itineraries suggested by local experts and a detailed pull-out map. Most of the itineraries are for day trips-on foot or by car or boat-making this guide most useful as a take-along (and thus less recommended for library circulation). Just browsing either guide will prompt a reader to consider a visit to the area, and public libraries with large European travel sections will be especially interested in adding Insight Guide's Italian Lakes to their collections.
