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

It was a great book for my trip...you 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.

I also found the most amazing place to eat in Venice because of the descriptions in the book.

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.

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.
