Book Description

8 Aug 2006 Pauline Frommer Guides (Book 1)
Spend Less and See More in Italy Are You Ready to Travel Smart? If you′d like to get the most out of your dollar and your trip, this is the guide for you. I put a fresh spin on budget travel, showing you how to see the best for less and how to see it in a more authentic way––the way the locals do. Instead of spending $300 a night for a chain hotel, why not stay in a light–filled apartment in Rome′s historical Trastevere neighborhood from just $125 or in one of Italy′s monasteries for as little as $35? Or how about enjoying a plate of hearty appetizers at Venice′s Cantino do Mori, so you can splurge on Paolo Senni′s tagliata di fesa di vitella at Cane & Gato in Sienna? Let me show you the "other" Italy––the one only insiders know about. Take a one–day paper marbling class in Venice or learn to cook the perfect rag? in Bologna. These are only a few of the great ways to get closer to the culture of Italy. Read on for more! Happy Travels, Pauline Frommer www.frommers.com/pauline Winner of Best Guidebook for 2006 from the North American Travel Journalists Association (Pauline Frommer′s New York City) Listen to a free Italy podcast featuring Pauline Frommer and Reid Bramblett at Frommers.com

About the Author

Born, bred, and living in South Africa, Keith Bain holds a doctorate in contemporary cinema studies. He has enjoyed such diverse activities as stage acting, skydiving, trance–partying, and bungee–jumping (although the latter, only once). He is passionate about travel, and when he’s not exploring the world in search of social and cultural adventure, he lectures at a film school in Johannesburg. Keith is a co–author of Frommer’s India and is a contributor to the most recent edition of Frommer’s South Africa. Reid Bramblett is the author of 10 guidebooks––7 of them to Italy, where he has lived on and off since the age of 11. He writes the weekly “The Intrepid Traveler” adventure column and is a contributing editor to Budget Travel magazine and Concierge. com. A Philadelphia native, he now lives in Brooklyn, New York, where he maintains the award–winning Reidsguides.com, recommended by CNN, USA Today, and National Geographic Traveler. Pippa de Bruyn is an award–winning journalist, seasoned travel writer (author of Frommer’s South Africa and Frommer’s India ), and oenophile (contributor to John Platter’s South African Wine Guide ). Her toughest assignment? Trying to fit the sybaritic pleasures of the Italian Riviera into 35 pages. Bill Fink is a freelance writer based in San Francisco, covering topics ranging from trash–dump volleyball in Burma to helicopter–skiing in Nevada. His writing appears regularly in the San Francisco Chronicle and other publications, including Travelers’ Tales Guides 30 Days in Italy and The Best Travel Writing 2006.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have 7 May 2007
By S. Heart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recently traveled to Italy with three guidebooks; this one, the Rick Steves and Fodors. I ended up throwing the other two away. This one gives the best advice by far and doesn't just send you to the places where all the other tourists are (like Steves). I really enjoyed the restaurant recommendations and found a great apartment in Rome through this book (loved the non-traditional lodgings listed in this book; so different than the other books). Great sightseeing and advice on transportation too. And Italy's expensive right now, but this book helped make it affordable. I can't tell you how terrific this book was!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I have bought so far 6 Feb 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is fantastic. LOTS of websites are listed and the practical info just isn't found in other books. The DK books are great for the pics, but this book is great for the recommendations of what NOT to miss and ways to see the other non-touristy side of Italy. So far this has been my favorite book. Can't wait to go to Italy!!

By J. Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com

I am going to Italy this Spring and I thought that this book would give me valuable information for my trip. It already saved me $400 when I used a url site for finding a cost effective flight to another place!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book; Good format and writing is not as dry as other travel books 19 May 2009
By T. R. Nobile - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My wife and I just got back from a week in Italy relying this book. The book's formatting made it easy to use. We selected all of our hotels using this book, trip adviser, and the New York Times. In retrospect, we would have been fine if we'd relied only on this book. The writing is also entertaining. My wife found especially helpful that this book contains writers' opinions about various sites and attractions, which is really what you need in a good travel book-- What the writers think you should see and not see. Obviously, their opinions are their own, but we found the opinions in this book to be very accurate and allowed us to save a lot of time. Finally, there were several specific instances in which this book saved us much more money than its retail price.

We highly recommend this book!

1.0 out of 5 stars Pauline Frommer's Italy:Sped Less, See More 8 Sep 2009
By Culture Vulture - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Nicely laid out, but so out of date! We went to three places she suggested and they no longer existed. She failed to mention which music clubs, etc. would be closed in August. We just stopped going to her suggested places. Her review of our Venice hotel was right on, and her suggestions for advanced tickets were helpful. Her desriptions of rooms in museums were also very helpful.
