Lonely Planet Italy 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 22 reviews.

If the city-focused travel guide books are considered novels, one should view Lonely Planet's "Italy" book as a collection of short stories. Over 900 pages of short stories. The book, like all of the Lonely Planet offerings, is beautifully laid out with bright and bold colors, clear organizational elements, and a wonderful multitude of clearly labelled and easily understood maps. What the book lacks, however, is any real depth. Every element allows the reader to dip his prospectively traveling toe in only the shallowest of Italian waters. I kept wanting more, but I think that's what the city-specific books are for. My family of five is planning a trip to Italy. We'll be hitting the biggies of Rome, Florence and Venice. This Lonely Planet "Italy" offering will be perfect for creating the outline of our activities. Since we're visiting multiple cities, we'll be able to use this as our 40,000-foot view of Italy and the specific cities we plan to visit. The core of our trip, however, will be guided by the city guides. The book contains the requisite recommended itineraries of different lengths, and has a plethora of small 'top lists' focused on food, shopping, activities in each location. I received this book as part of Amazon's Vine program.

I agree with anonymous (April 12, 2013). The nookbook version of this Italy guidebook is horrible.. useless. Pages freeze, fails to connect to links, and hard to follow. Don't recommend. In addendum, the format used today by Lonely Planet has changed a lot since 1980-1990's when I did a lot of traveling in my youth. Current format of guidebooks hard to follow, disjointed, no depth.

Of all the guidebooks I bought for my 7 week trip around Italy, this ended up being my go-to book! The maps were very useful especially. I just wish the book was split into smaller books/ volumes so it would be easier to carry around instead of one big chunk of a book. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this to those visiting Italy.

Useless!  The Lonely Planet guidebooks are wonderful, but the Nookbook versions are poorly designed and useless; they take forever to load, frequently freeze, fail to correctly connect to links, and are full of other bugs.  Do yourself a favor and buy the paperback instead!

Lovino grabbed Feliciano's hand before he got to far, pulling him close to his side, ''Stay near me...''

Feliciano nodded, clinging to Lovino. "I know, its okay...."

Lovino kept an eye out for anyone who looked shady, keeping on the path that led to the lake, ''I just hope we can make it home before it gets too dark.''
