Having visited Southern Italy, Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast and Capri twice in less than 6 months, this book captures the absolute magic of this enchanting land with great photography and detailed text which gives excellent background material. If you are equally enchanted by this magic area this publication gives a ready made memory jogger as well as a great way of showing to others why you are so entranced.
