Invaluable Guide, 30 July 2011
I bought this book on the basis of another review - and was very pleased that I did. The information was up-to-date, accurate and the opinion sensible. It allowed us to travel independently and avoid the crowds (go early and ignore queues as much as your conscience will allow). We found that the Tour Operator's trips, certainly at the height of season, would have been possible and more enjoyable if we had used this book and journeyed under our own steam - particularly Capri where the crowds spoiled any charm that the place had and the tour guide, although knowledgeable, did not take us to places we would have chosen to visit on the island. The book is a handy size too and I found it good to 'gen' up on places to visit in advance.
