Book Description

19 Jan 2011 Berlitz Pocket Guides
This Berlitz Pocket Guide to Naples, Capri & the Amalfi Coast provides all the information you need to enjoy this enchanting destination. Clear colour-coded sections enable you to locate the information you need easily and full colour fold-out maps provide instant orientation wherever you are. The most popular attractions are highlighted on a dedicated double-page spread and include Pompeii's Villas, The Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte, the beautiful coastal village of Positano and of course the magical Blue Grotto; an exquisite experience sought by travellers for nearly 200 years. Shopping for everything from local Neapolitan art such as the meticulously carved Cameos to stylish designer labels are detailed, as well as sports, nightlife and entertainment, such as opera in the Teatro San Carlo. As birthplace of the Pizza, you will probably want to sample a genuine Neopolitan Margherita; an Eating Out section provides information on all local specialities and even includes useful Italian vocabulary. Accommodation for all budgets is recommended, along with other practical travel tips. A transport map is included in this edition, so you can make your way around with ease. Beautiful colour photographs accompany the text throughout, making this guide a pleasure to read before, during and after your visit.

4.0 out of 5 stars pocket guide packs power 7 Feb 2011
What a neat little package this is. This really is a pocket guide, it will fit in the average jacket pocket. There are many things I love about this guide. If you are making a quick hello visit, check out the 10 Top Attractions page to make sure you see the unforgettable. The guide also covers sights in detail, far more than you would imagine in such a tiny book, so this is not just for the day tripper. There are eight pages devoted to Pompeii, better than some larger format guides. I also rate the Perfect Day in Naples page highly. This guide includes what to see, where to go, food and drink including a menu reader, places to eat and all the practical information on driving, transport, police and more. The only niggle is, being compact and petite, the suburban rail and metro map is good and the Pompeii map is fair but buy a fold out map of the area and Naples as an extra. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for holidays 27 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I do like the Berlitz guides, nicely produced, give simple basic ways of getting around another country, and a few words likely to be needed in Italian,how to buy tickets etc and it doesn't weigh one down on a day out sightseeing, and fits nicely in one's pocket or bag.

5.0 out of 5 stars small but perfectly formed 27 Feb 2014
By Annie G
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought two guide books (and a map) from Amazon. They all arrived together on time. Berlitz was the one I carried around in my handbag: first because it was small, and second because it had some really useful fold-out maps within the covers. The physical quality was excellent; the cover and its maps were thick and shiny, and still in good condition after a week of hard use in somewhat rainy conditions. It saved us a lot of time by listing the 'must-sees' and giving helpful routes and background notes as we 'did' the ruins and surrounding area in an all too brief week

3.0 out of 5 stars Of little help during the off season. 29 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are traveling during the off season, this book is fairly useless. I visited in March, not realising that many/ most places and facilities don't open until April. So all three recommended restaurants in Sorrento, for example, were closed. The only two maps are of Naples and Pompeii, and the map of Pompeii is useless.
The major attractions of Pompeii and Herculaneum were given just 4 pages, which seemed completed unsufficient.
Perhaps I found this book just OK because I didn't go to Naples or Capri, but I can certainly say that the Amalfi coast is not described well or in much detail at all. I relied on Trip Advisor and generally using Google to get the information I wanted.
I know there's only so much one can expect from a pocket guide, but I expected more than what I got from this book I'm afraid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good one week general guide. 24 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Needed something for background information and orientation to the area, not an in-depth guide. This fits the bill fine as far as I can judge.

Perfect for my trip. Small enough to fit in my bag but detailed enough to give me all the info I needed and more. Great little book and less that 5. What's not to like.

Berlitz guides give loads of information and this pocket size makes them even more versatile. This format is pretty much unbeatable
