This book begins by laying out its purpose (Page 2): "Italy is so packed with attractions that it's hard to know where to start. But that's where we come in."

Far more impressed by my friend's copy of Rick Steve's Guide to Italy.... this one just sort of fell flat and didn't help me much on my travels.
