HASH(0x9bf8ac78) out of 5 stars Nearly Always Reliable Jan. 12 2007
By BellaBull - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've always liked Frommer's, mainly because the books are well-organized and provide a great overview and starting point. The attractions are clearly explained, with hours, admission fees, restrictions, & considerations. The hotel suggestions are generally good, though usually a little on the more expensive end, and in lieu of internet I find them generally reliable.

It can be a little dry and a little mainstream, but their books are usually updated with good regularity & is good for planning your sightseeing and transportation. More detailed information on ferries & hydrofoils (not just from Frommers but guide books in general) would be nice!

HASH(0x9bd29c30) out of 5 stars good overview of Northern Italy Jan. 6 2009

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We found this book very useful in our recent travels especially for sights and dining. Did not agree with some of the hotel reviews so consider comparing to another guide book.

HASH(0x9d7219f0) out of 5 stars Good, but the contents section needs improving Sept. 4 2011
By Sherry Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've slated Frommers France for not having a contents section and when you're reading a digital version of a travel book it's unforgiveable to not have one. It's not like you can flip through the pages as you would a physical book. Without a contents section you're reduced to methodically advancing each page until you find what you want (which may even be at the back of the book). Frommers have at least tried to provide a contents section for this digital travel book but it is woeful. I mean, how much investment is really necesary in creating a visually-appealing, easy-to-negotiate contents section. This one looks like it's been designed by a computer-programmer - all function, no finesse...not even spacings or type-size to differentiate between the splurb of clickable contents. It's like some-one backed a dumpster up and offloaded the entire contents section in a heap. It's hard to read, hard to negotiate...but, hey, it's there. Woeful. But the travel content is good. Wake up Frommers and spend more than an hour of some apprentice-in-the-back-room's wages on providing digitally readable content.
HASH(0x9be5bf24) out of 5 stars Doesn't inspire you to book a trip April 22 2016
By Nancy Duffy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I get the author tried to cram as much information into this book as possible but what you're left with is so cumbersome to read that it makes traveling to Italy seem like a hassle. And this is only Northern Italy. I'd had to think if the book encompassed the whole country. Found it tiresome to read. I would have preferred less boring details and more of a true guide of what would make for a wonderful trip to Northern Italy for the first-time visitor and returning tourist who wants to see some of the sights they missed the first time around. Pictures of recommended sights, hotels, restaurants, neighborhoods would have made this more exciting to read.
HASH(0x9c5755dc) out of 5 stars This volume should add to your experience March 3 2015
By Robert M. Nied - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I cannot yet say "I love it" because I have not used it for my Fall, 2015 trip, but the three northern Italian cities, Turin, Milan, and Trieste, that I will visit appear to be well represented in this volume. Frommer has a good name, and I am sure I can count on its contents to be very helpful. I am not interested in eateries and night life, so up-to-date information about them do not add to my travel experience.
