3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Elaine on 21 Jan. 2010
Format: Paperback
The positives:
This book is nice and compact and light - great for adding to your rucksack. The daily stages begin with a time/distance summary, and a good summary of the terrain for the day. The descriptions of the stages seem very clear, and there are good sketch maps.

The negatives:
Unfortunately, there wasn't enough information for this to be my only guide, particularly for accommodation outside July/Aug. The descriptions don't all say when the hostel/rifugio is open (and many don't seem to have websites). And there's no indication of price. I know that prices change, but at least a cheap/moderate/expensive rating would be very useful. Also no indication of how complete a list of accommodation is being given at each location.

My brother only used it as far as Abetone and felt it gave a reasonable description. Best bit on last two days. .

Best journey I've ever taken 10 Aug. 2010
By Ed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book led me on possibly the most wonderful backpacking trip I've ever taken. Starting in Sansepolcro and making my way to Montecasale, I saw beautiful mountains and charming villages along this charming path filled with magical moments. The journey gave a unique view of an unspoiled part of the country.

The book isn't excellent for navigation purposes, and you'll definitely want to purchase some topographical hiking maps, but these are available in almost any bookstore in most of the towns along the route. The long detailed introduction was extremely helpful for planning and convincing me that this was the hike for me. Descriptions of attractions and lodging along the way were spot on and wonderfully descriptive.

Completely insufficient guide 2 Oct. 2011
By Jeffrey N. Stevens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recently tried to use this guide to trek from Caprese to San Pellegrino, but had to abandon the hike at Passo della Futa (less than half way) after continually missing the trail turns. The main problem with the guide is that it gives extremely few navigational details, and fails to inform the reader that the signposts and trail blazing is intermittent and often incorrect. It is true that the book warns us to buy the detailed maps, yet I could not find them in any of the villages along the way. Besides, for a fortnight long hike, this would have cost maybe $200 for the maps!
I think what is needed is a guide book along the lines of what the French Federation of Hiking publishes as "topo-guides", which include copious details on the trails and snapshots of the French IGN maps. Instead, from the publisher Cicerone, we get many, all too many photos of the author, and very little useful information.
