Whilst the book is a great tourist guide to where to sleep and eat, things to do and see, excursions to take, it also evokes breathtaking images of incredibly beautiful Italian cities and villages, including travel destinations well off the beaten track.
If you have never been to Italy, reading this book would make you WANT to go there. If you have already been to Italy, reading the book will make you HAVE to return to explore parts of Italy that you have never heard of. The book lets you imagine fairy tale villages with a relaxed way of life, cobblestoned streets, where old and new are intertwined as if they are one against a backdrop of impressive cliffs, sandy white beaches and deep blue Mediterranean waters.
It immerses us into a variety of Italian culture, customs and habits, colourful food markets, delectable food specialities and a rich culture of great art: paintings and sculptures by the Italian masters. I recommend this book for anyone who are thinking of travelling in Italy.
