Product Description

About the Author

Paula has spent the last five years living in and writing her way around the fringes of the Mediterranean, from a cultural history of Libya to Lonely Planet projects in Italy, Morocco and Spain. This has given her a deep appreciation of the composite oriental and occidental culture that makes southern Italy and Sicily endlessly fascinating, while repeated visits over the years have allowed her to savour the changing colours and contexts of Mediterranean life. When not climbing mountains and volcanoes to work off the worst excesses of Italian restaurants, Paula lives in London and contributes travel articles to the Telegraph, Independent, Daily Express and Wanderlust Travel Magazine.

I bought this to help plan our trip to Italy, as we were not using a tour group and doing everything ourselves.

I found this book useful in a few ways:
1) during the trip reading the blurbs about where we were
2) before trip getting information about costs
3) flipping through it to understand stuff to see in different areas.

However, for items 2 and 3 (especially 3) I found trip advisor to be a much better resource.

The main reasons I didn't like this book was that there seems to be no logical order in how information is sorted in a section. If I want information on a specific place I am visitng it takes forever to find it

Overall, if you are planning a trip, I would say go with tripadvisor instead.

This is a very comprehensive coverage of Italy. It's the only travel book I found that included a lot of information about the Adriatic Coast of Italy and the Italian 'heel' area. Love how it's organized and it's easy to figure out the top sights to visit. Good background information and contains lots of detailed maps. It's particularly well-suited to those who like to plan their own trips. Well done!

This book has been a wealth of information to help me and my husband plan for our upcoming trip this fall. Love the colorful pictures, language guide, and historical information. I used The Lonely Planet Guide to Ireland in 2012 and it was a lifesaver for B&B's and places to eat and things to see while in different Counties.

Pretty weak book, lonely planet. This book will try to convince you that the only thing to do in Italy is visit museums. Well, two is enough for me. The hotel listings are not very in depth. And the fact that the price coding is not next to the name on the map legend means you will be flipping back a forth a lot. The book setup is awkward, with sleeping accommodation near the end of each town's section. I every town they mention 20 museums to visit with some lengthy descriptions, but then only mention 4 places to sleep. These places will undoubtedly be booked full, so guess what? You're gonna be wandering the streets for a couple hours. I've used the Footprints brand of travel guide, and found them much better.
