    Good book for saving money on an Italian tour!

    Literally if you show this book - it will get you discounts on meals in Italy, and I can't wait to try it. I enjoy the little details in this book to make a tour more interesting and helps make the trip more memorable. This book is written to carry with you and explore the back streets for food and adventures. I used Rick Steve's books in London and Paris for great exploration of big cities.

    A great pocket guide

    I loved the way that the information was presented - nice, digestible chunks. The recommended walking tours were also helpful. Loved having it on the nook - made it much more portable and felt less like a "tourist" consulting the nook than a big book or map ;)
