Italy Superbly Presented For The Traveler 5 juillet 2014
Par Esteban Ess - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This guidebook to Italy is enjoyable to use for planning your next journey and makes good reading material as well. The photographs are excellent. The maps include country overview, regional overviews and a number of detailed street maps for walking and orienting yourself in the major cities. The book highlights six regions of Italy and presents them in a color coded theme with colored page edges that make it easy to thumb to the region of interest. The book's size makes it a great take-along and it will fill some time and whet your appetite for Italy and its food and attractions while you are in transit to Italy by air or by sea or rail. It is a must read before making travel plans and reservations. The book can help you to carve out a trip of however many weeks you plan to devote to Italy. But, the cautious traveler knows that all of Italy and its variegated neighborhoods, out of the way attractions, unique museums and more cannot possibly be stuffed into a 400 page guidebook except by abbreviating information and leaving some things out.

Still, this guidebook provides me with just about every piece of tourist information that I like to carry with me when I travel to new places. There are ample orientation maps, capsule information on major sites to see, museums, places of special interest, neighborhoods, and so forth. The Survival Guide in the back of the book provides a lot of know-how in such areas as: public holidays, business hours, tours, customs regulations, medical services, discount cards, tourist offices, and more. These are not detailed instructions, but they are enough to get the seasoned traveler quickly on track. There is a capsule history of Italy with a time scale. Also some day trips.

A person may choose to search out more information before tackling train, bus and subway travel and certainly to seek a wider choice of places to stay especially B&Bs and Agritour Farms. The book can also come in handy while evaluating hotels and B&Bs you may find on line -- as to their neighborhoods and locations, access to public transport and so on. Probably less than ten percent of the places to stay in Italy are set forth in this book. Find your location where you want to focus then dig in deep using various web sites and advice from friends and travel agents to pick the hotel that best fits your travel style.

There is not much info in the book on crime prevention or street smart practices that might apply to some of the pickpocket techniques, room theft, distraction and grab and other scams that may be more practiced in large tourist-laden cities. For example, a friend of mine had his wallet picked right out of his pocket while taking a photo in a church. He was encountered from in front by a "helpful" person who happened to bump him into a man in back of him. He did not even realize his wallet was missing until he went to make a donation to the church. Moral of this tale: Carry your valuables in a neck pouch or money belt pouch beneath your clothes. All in all, the book will pay for itself even during the trip planning stage as well as on the ground. I look forward to using it on my first trip to Italy. HINT: The companion Lonely Planet Discover Rome goes into ample detail on that city should you decide on an extended stay in Rome.

Ciao and safe travels to Italy.

Italy at your fingertips! 1 juillet 2014
Par Kevin J. Loria - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I'll update this once I have a chance to actually travel with this guide, but for now Lonely Planet's survival guide could be instrumental in helping you plan and make the most your Eye'tie dream vacation. It's neatly color coded to help you discover Italy from Switzerland to Sicily in six subsections: 1) The Colosseum, Rome & the Vatican, 2) Veneto, Venice & Bologna, 3) Tuscany, Umbria & Florence, 4) Milan, the Lakes & Piedmont, 5) Napals, Pompeii & the Amalfi Coast 6) Finally Sicily and Southern Italy. Within each section you get maps, related websites, highlights, local info and bullets for must-see locations, Art and experiences not to be missed (including open hours and prices). You also get itineraries and trip planning ideas, they've even included advice from locals (like authors, tour guides and landmark administrators). You'll find thumbnail history on many locations and specific book and film suggestions to find more info and prepare for you trip(s). I found Seasonal Food and Festival recommendations very useful, for example we may synchronize our trip with NOLA's Mardi Gras holiday with Italy's Carnevale period. A couple if drawbacks on this edition is the foldout map included with this book is of Rome only (a possible redundancy if you have gotten Lone Planet's Guide to Rome separately), also at over 400 pages this edition is more chunky and broad than many other travel books (Frommer's and Fodor's are favs with us) possibly making it inconvenient once you're out of the planning stage and into the actual traveling.

Best Travel Guide I've looked into for Italy trip 22 mai 2014
Par A. Looby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This is a superior guide! I've been planning a trip to Tuscany and Venice for a few months and have looked into several guides and I fully believe this is the best one. It is written in a very familiar tone.

The front of the book has sections on "must see" and "must do" things for the country as a whole. I've kinda skipped over the parts that are not where we're planning to travel, but what I did see in them is inspiring a new trip....

There is a month by month calendar of festivals included. This is really cool so we can look into the dates we're going and try to plan around the busy festival times. Or we can plan to be part of the busy festival times!

The book is divided into geographical sections which are:
1. Rome and The Vatican
2. Milan, the Lakes and Piedmont
3. Venice, Veneto and Bologna
4. Florence, Tuscany and Umbria
5. Naples, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast
6. Sicily and Southern Italy

Each section is dense with information about food, lodging, highlights and special "need to know" tips about the region.

This is a fantastic resource for planning a trip to what I believe is the most wonderful country on the planet!

My preferred travel guide for Italy. 30 juillet 2014
Par Donnie Darko - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I have traveled to Italy many times and each visit has made me love the country more. Whether you want to visit beaches or museums, vineyards or shops, this book will guide your way. The authors included their top 25 itineraries, the best places for food, wine, operas, street markets, beaches, and more. What to see and when to see it. How to understand an Italian menu, information on art, architecture, and Italy past and present. The survival guide lets you know about the electricity, health insurance, tourist websites, telephones, currency, credit cards, holidays, accommodations, various modes of transportation, the language, the climate, and so much more. All this in an easy to carry along book that is filled with useful maps and great pictures. I recommend this book to anyone planning a trip to Italy.

User Friendly Guide 30 juin 2014
Par Erika Borsos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Italy is a vacation/holiday destination high on most people's wish lists! This book will definitely help the discerning visitor choose the best places to visit among the top 6 regions of Italy: Rome and the Vatican;Milan, the Lakes and Piedmont; Venice, Veneto and Bologna; Florence, Tuscany and Umbria; Naples, Pompeii, and Amalfi Coast, and Sicilly and Southern Italy. As with most Lonely Planet guides, the book is color coded to each region making it easy to navigate and find whatever interests the reader. The book provides descriptions and photos of 25 highlights or must see cities, locations and sights which are also labelled on a handy map, helping the reader keep proper perspective and determine how realistic it would be to travel to each destination within the timeframe of their vacation. There are helpful sections with travel tips, methods of travel, accommodations, regulations and customs This book selects *most* of what a visitor would love to see and provides a list of hotels and restaurants within each region that fits within moderate to high end budgets. Descriptions are given of where to locate public transportation, such as bus and train terminals and the metro and how to travel from one important location to another, which is very important for tourists who are unlikely to rent a car and drive around in Italy.

However, as the saying goes, "Don't judge a book by its cover" because the cover itself would not entice me to buy this travel book. The background color on the cover, a dark lime green is not attractive. Florence is a great destination but the cover photo, the red roof of the Doumo (cathedral) one of the city's most iconic landmarks just does not do this book justice. There are numerous beautiful photos within this book which would have better served as cover of unforgettable places: numerous historical locations within Rome, various piazzas and fountains; Naples and Pompeii, the Amalfi coast, and the rolling hillsides of Tuscany with vineyards, castles, mansions and farmhouses and breath taking landscapes. Also it was disappointing that Portofino, one of the most picturesque and famous Italian ports was not mentioned in this book. Lastly, although agriturism was mentioned as an option, the book lacked information on the subject nor did it provide an internet link . For these reasons I deduct one star.
