This book, again, was awesome. We stayed in the most incredible "locandas" (locandi?) on his recommendations and ate at unbelievably good restaurants, and I felt really good about the cost. Not only are his restaurants and hotels clean, charming, centrally located, and well-priced, they come with friendly owners--we spent a lot of time just chatting with them. His reviews for sights to see and the amount of time to stay in each city were very helpful as well. Again, try to download his audioguides off of his website. We found them to be very helpful; we liked listening to them on the trains on our way to different places so that we could just enjoy the sites on our own with a little background about what we were seeing.
