    One of the Best Guides for a Trip to Italy!

    The more I read this book, the more impressed I am with it. The information provided is so useful, logical, and down to Earth, it pretty much leaves no room for questions of our own! The information provided is absolutely invaluable. I wouldn't go to Italy without it. I love it so much that I purchased one as a gift for my Mom and Dad, who are accompanying us on our dream trip to Italy. If I weren't so thrilled with this book, I would have just given it to them to read as an aside; but this is one book I knew they would devour before our long-awaited trip. If you are going to Italy, or just thinking about going, do not hesitate to purchase this book as part of your research and inspiration! You won't regret it.

    Very Helpful

    This was a very helpful book to plan cheap, fun travels to Italy. It tells you the price of hotels, food, plane tickets, and more. It talks about a lot of attractions and where to find them. You will find out what to see and do day by day for the length of time you will be there.

    Highly recommended

    This is very detailed in terms of every sight you should visit in Italy as well as hotels and restaurants. Very informative. The only drawback is there is no pictures. If you read this book along with the DK Travel Eyewitness Book of Italy, it will be wonderful as it contains a lot of colorful pictures. The drawback of the DK Eyewitness book is the print is too small.
