4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, nice series Sept. 14 2011
Thoroughly enjoyed this book, humorous, very informative and well-structured. I followed Rick Steve's guide rigorously and never been disappointed. As a matter of fact, every time we decided to deviate from the book recommendations during our trip to Italy, we had sub-par experience, even when we thought we were thoroughly prepared. The only downside of this book is its cheaper appearance - if it would be of "Eyewitness guide" quality - it would be worthy the front shelve in the library (but would cost more of course)

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent guide April 1 2010

Just back from a week in Italy. So glad I bought and read this book before the trip. So helpful with information about reservations needed for some sites (which the professor leading our tour was clueless about), and great tips on eating and shopping. Podcasts we downloaded off his website were great. highly recommended!

Very good guidebook. Practical information. Not too big - easy to take on a trip.
The best book I have found - and I have looked at a least 5 others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Leave Home Without... Dec 4 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book along with Rick Steves Venice and Rome for a trip I was planning to Italy. I have to admit that we would have been totally lost without having these books. Not only is the books full of useful maps, ticketing information, restaurants and prices, but it also contains suggestions for tours of museums and self walking tours. I used all three of this travel guides when we were in the cities and I read them all in depth before we left. Since we planned out everything before we went and did most of the museum tours on our own I felt like we were well prepared with these books. All of the travel tips alone are excellent and I enjoyed going to some of the restaurants suggested in the books. I can not count all the times we were stopped in different museums in Florence and Venice and asked by different people traveling where we had gotten these books. I will never plan a trip without purchasing a Rick Steves Travel Guide book again.
