I love Lonely Planet guides not only because of the quality information, but also because of the humor and writing style. When the author lets you know that Giordano Bruno's statue in Rome looks like Obi-Wan and at the same time gives you much appreciated advice how to cut the queue at the Colosseum, then you have really stumbled upon a gem of tourist literature!
Come al solito ottima guida, ma essendo di uno stato che conosciamo bene (!) permette di coglierne meglio le inesattezze; interessante leggere come ci vedono gli altri. Ad esempio si legge che l'Italia non è pericolosa per le donne, ma si consiglia, per non essere importunate, di dire che stanno aspettando il marito. Avverte inoltre di fare attenzione alle mani vaganti nei bus affollati (?!).

Great when used in combination with the rough guide. This one was best for planning both the overall trip (lodging, etc.) and day by day for attractions, walks, etc. Rough guide gave more detailed information about each individual site, etc. but was more difficult to use as an overview.
