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." Frommer's has published many a volume that I have used in family vacations or even long weekends. This is another strong entry in the series.

The book begins with an introductory chapter that provides background for the rest of the work. It outlines some of the best places to visit, very briefly, in Italy (e.g., best restaurants, best wineg
I confess: I don't know where I would start if I were assigned the monstrous/fabulous chore/pleasure of composing a tour-book about Italy. And to be fair, I generally like the authors' recommendations, though I did feel they angled toward a slightly older, slightly wealthier type of tourist than I consider myself. And I appreciated the extensive historical sketches at the start of each section. My friends, who were traveling with Fodor's 2010 guide, had little of that.

My beef with the book is it
It was a great book for my should see it now. It's all torn up and all of the pages are folded and marked up. It told me everything I wanted to know about the places I visited in Italy. When we would go to a new city, I would just look it up in the book and see what sites were a MUST. It saved a lot of time. I also found the most amazing place to eat in Venice because of the descriptions in the book.
Good for planning a trip - one book for the whole country. Virtually no photos, though, so not great for planning whht you'll see or do (Use DK/Eyewitness series for that).
I finished the information on Rome, Florence, Italian Lakes, Italian Riveria, Pisa, Venice, Siena, Genoa, and Cinque Terra that we'll need for our trip. Good information on each.
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.
Thumbing through here all the time dreaming up a vacation in my mind!
