4.0 out of 5 stars Good One Volume Guide, 12 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rough Guide to the Italian Lakes (Paperback)
I bought this guide for a trip which would take in both Milan and the Lakes and my concern was would there be enough coverage of both in the one book? Well, the good news is that this Rough Guide does fulfill both functions pretty well. The section on Milan is fairly extensive (50 pages) and includes a decent selection of the sights, some useful recommendations on hotels and restaurants and a few maps which are useful albeit not very detailed. The four major lakes also receive similar coverage and importantly include up to date information about boats, special tickets and admission prices. Additionally there are suggestions for other city day trips in the area including Pavia, Verona and Mantova with supporting material. The text is backed up with more colour illustrations than previous Rough Guides that I have purchased and you still get the interesting contexts and further reading sections. Some readers on a budget may find that the recommendations for accommodation and eating have gone rather up market and out of their price range, but for most this is a very handy one volume guide to a gorgeous part of Italy. In the end, I was glad that I chose this particular guide. Recommended.
