A new and 50% enlarged, entertaining, but fundamentally serious selection of the most rewarding places to visit the most visited and beloved country in the world. Places described have gone from 101 to 150 in this edition. Sicily, Calabria and Apulia are the subjects of greater focus. Towns (additions include Bergamo, Pesaro, Cremona and Todi), villages, museums and individual monuments are discussed, characterised and described. A guide book in its own right, but above all a thoughtful, opinionated and supremely well-informed guide, supplement and corrective to conventional guides. Note this is not a guide to hotels, restaurants and other amenities.
