Book Description

6 May 2014
One Hundred and One Beautiful Small Towns of Italy is a gorgeously illustrated as well as informative journey through the Italian countryside, a place where the pace slows, locals engage strangers in conversation, and every town has a unique story to tell. Breathtaking full-colour photographs create the perfect atmosphere as you discover these unexplored places, and descriptive sidebars offer invaluable information on local curiosities to indulge, unique artisan products to buy, and age-old culinary specialties to sample. A detailed appendix is the perfect source on where to shop, sightsee, and dine! Whether you are an armchair traveler or an Italiophile planning another trip, this volume is the guide to the hidden treasures of Italy that proves once and for all that the heart of this popular travel destination lies in the countryside far from the grandeur of Rome.

1.0 out of 5 stars Outdated, lacks information and old photography 20 Jun 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed by this book. I wanted to read it to get a feel for new places to visit in Italy, in particular small towns. The information appears to be dated, lacks real tangible up to date information for a tourist and photography looks from the 1980's and quite grainy. After 10 mins if reading I assigned this book to the charity box.

My wife and I are crazy about Italy. Soon to take our 3rd holiday there, we see ourselves returning again and again for years to come, to both revisit places we love and to discover new gems. This book contains a few towns we have visited, stayed in or passed through, but many many more that we haven't yet seen. My only complaint about this book is that it has given us a headache over where exactly to go next, we are spoilt for choice!

Some reviewers on a previous edition complained that the book doesn't live up to its name as focusing on small towns, given that it includes such major cities as Verona, Ferrara, Bari and Catania. While this is true, it does deliberately miss out the biggest and most famous locations in Italy such as Rome, Venice, Florence and Naples, and the focus is firmly on the smaller, less famous and less crowded places, including many beautiful small towns.

The photos are excellent and the writing is informative and interesting, mixing history, architecture, culture, art, food, and geography. Maybe a map for each regional chapter would make it even better, but that is a minor point.
The book in the same series, by the same author, focusing solely on food and wine is also excellent and highly recommended.
This edition is in a compact size that makes it an ideal coffee table book and also easy to slot on a shelf.

If you have had a taste of Italy and want more, then this book should help get you hooked. Or if you have a friend who is interested in exploring this wonderful land further, then this book would make a lovely gift.
