HASH(0xa2fd199c) out of 5 stars Highly Recommended May 28 2016
By Dean Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read the complete book which is of perfect dimensions for travel. This is a wonderful book and is much more than just a typical travel guide. It is profusely filled with beautiful color photos and descriptions, has numerous tips regarding lodging suggestions, dining suggestions and information to keep a tourist from getting into trouble with regulations and customs they otherwise might not be aware of. You know, "When in Rome do as the Romans do". The destinations are very well organized and described with interesting verbiage rather than the "dry" descriptions often used in other guides I have seen. Of course, with the author being born and raised in Italy, her insight is personal rather than gleaned from merely research. She also includes websites and phone numbers so the tourist can pre-plan well. Due to my own physical limitations, I will be unable to visit Italy, but now feel like I have been there with Romina Arena by my side as a personal guide. Dean M. Martin
HASH(0xa2fd19f0) out of 5 stars Don't leave for Italy without this awesome guide!! June 25 2016

Romina Arena has one more peg to add to her already long list of accomplishments in musical pop opera voice and composition. This guide to travel in the land of love, with the food of love and walking where prolific movie treasures have been filmed is truly second to none. It is not only informative but very chic and fun. Only an Italian can help you discover the jewels in this Mediterrean peninsula like you couldn't do alone.

There are chapters focusing on Milan, Lake Como a fab place George Clooney clearly gives a thumbs up too, as well as Rome, Naples and her own beloved Sicily. There are details in every chapter listing famous films, travel tips, restaurant guides which only an insider would know. Like where to find the best gelato in Rome or facts like the Vatican containing its own post office and pharmacy within its tall walls as an independent state. Romina also shares her hotel picks based on privileged knowledge. Yes... Even recipes from movies like Eat, Pray Love for Pizza Margherita. She describes Palmermo as a child born under the Tuscan Sun. Stand back Fodor's because this is a rock star version of how to enjoy Italy through the eyes and heart of an acclaimed, authentic girl whose heart is drenched in all things Mediterranean. The value far exceeds the cost of this guide for me.

What can I say, Romina Arena is not only a fabulous award-winning Italian recording artist, but now she is an author! Loved this book and it is a must read especially if you are planning on visiting Italy. Even if you are not visiting Italy this year, it is a fun to read all about the famous movies. This book is a great reference to all of the sights in Italy and where they filmed many movies. Picture this, Italy..you are in Rome and have no clue as to where to go for some dinner or get a hotel room. Then you remember that you have this travel book and Romina gives you tips on where to eat and stay, as well as stories to go with the places in Rome. I really enjoyed this book and the many delightful stories that are within it's pages. I would recommend this book for anyone that loves to travel, in love with the movies, and loves a fun read with tips, information and you know it is authentic. Thank you Romina..keep writing and singing...

Whether you are going to Italy or staying home or thinking about a great gift, you can't go wrong with this book. Here's why: First, it's way more than a travel book. It's a detailed map of all things Italian. Not only do you receive very useful tips about the culture, but you also receive detailed information on the towns, regions, hotels, restaurants, and valuable tips on planning your trip. So it's not only where to go, what to do, what the culture is like, etc, but it's brings in the added element of movie trivia. It is infused with wonderful stories. Put of these elements together, along with a writing style that is fun, engaging and warm and you have MAGIC. A great combination of facts, information, tips, pictures and incredible stories with the added bonus of film. Love it.

Format: Paperback
I read the book from cover to cover in two days. From the minute i read the first few pages I was hooked, since i had visited so many of the places the author describes. Italy is a beautiful country and to have the story about where a movie was filmed gives an extra enchantment to reading. Throughout the book you will find uselful information on towns to visit and as I stress to everyone in my facebook cooking group "Italian Men and Women Who Love to Cook" manners are the upmost importance when traveling to countries oustide of the U.S. Romina explains many important topics that you may not be familiar with if you are not a frequent traveler. I recommend the purchase, a great gift for the new grad as well if they are taking off to italy to backpack after college!
