2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't find this guide very helpful, describes the main toursit sites, but not how to get to them., 4 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DK Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guide: Milan & the Lakes (Paperback)
First time I've used these guides, and wouldn't buy them again, as I didn't find them very useful. Bought them on the basis that they were smaller guides and would therefore be easier to carry around. They are short on detail and tell you everything except what you want to know, like what number trams and buses go by the sites described. Also missing detail like you can buy tram tickets in the metro stations, and that you could buy tickets covering two days etc. (I found some tobacconists didn't sell them), and that you only get a 15 minute time slot for viewing Leonardo's Last Supper. Some facts were wrong like being able to buy a ticket on the bus 73 from Linate to the city, you can't, you have to buy it from the ticket machine outside the airport. Would have been helpful to have included a route map for the metro, buses and trams in the guide. There was no mention of bikemi (the equivalent of London's Boris bikes) in the guide.
