Book Description

15 Jan 2007
Blue Guides: Complete Cultural Guides -- The art, history and architecture of this region is rich, as is its wine and gastronomy which are described in detail in this guide. Full-colour throughout with detailed maps and diagrams. Includes Blue Guides Recommended dining and accommodation suggestions. The author, supported by the classicists and art historians on the Blue Guides editorial board, has updated this new edition with a wealth of detail. Illustrations to inform rather than to decorate: maps, diagrams, floor plans, architectural details and photographs -- "Often plagiarised by other guide writers, Blue Guides have always been a gold standard for accuracy and depth" Daily Telegraph. "Guide books in the grand tradition of thoroughness and objectivity" Georgia Review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top travel guide to the area 9 Mar 2012
By Crocus
I've only written this to balance the only other review. This is an outstanding guide to the area, rich in detail about the glorious cultural and geographical possibilities of the area. As someone who has planned school trips in this area the level of detail, often about out of the way places, is greatly superior to the alternatives. As ever it rather depends what you want from your guide and this one doesn't have the same level of detail as the Rough guide about where to stay, but as a reference for the curious traveller it is yet to be bettered.

A good book. However it arrived too late to be taken on our journey. It is well laid out and covers the area well.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit dull 30 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very dull book, bland and unopiniated. It is also heavy to lug around. Someone lent us a Cadogan guide and we found it more interesting and more useful.

3.0 out of 5 stars art and archiutecture 25 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Thorough book, loads of info, but for what I wanted, a bit heavy on the art and architecture rather than whats going on in a town.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that good 21 Dec 2009
By John
Not very good coverage. Better off with a Lonely Planet Italy or one for the islands or Puglia.
