Best Travel Series of the Year, 2008
''We select the Little Black Travel Books as our travel guide series of the year. The main reasons for designating these guides as best of the year are their portability and user friendliness. (The spiral binding allows the reader to keep the book open to a certain page.) Individual volumes are small enough to fit into a pocket, but in terms of helpfulness, they are twice their physical dimensions. The other reason these guides are so worthy of praise is the fact that each volume has a neat, tidy, and nicely detailed foldout map to the particular area under discussion. The chapters in each volume correspond to the geographical areas into which the authors divide the city for the tourist. Each chapter gives basics on places to see, available art, and entertainment venues, places to eat and drink, where to shop, and where to stay. You can study a range of guides before your actual trip, but this is definitely a commendable candidate for carrying with you on site.''

The main map was invaluable!!! We had 3 other guides/maps, and each time we got turned around, those would go away and we'd pull out this book to get us back on track.
it never failed us. :)
My best friend went to Rome a couple months after we did, and she took it with her too.
You can't go wrong with this one folks! :)
