Fab book for a recent holiday to Lake Como,
This review is from: Insight Guides: Italian Lakes (Insight Regional Guide) (Paperback)
This book is great and I used it on a recent holiday to Lake Como - it has a friendly and informative writing style and loads of pictures to give you a real flavour of what's to come on your holiday. The map that comes with it is also great - especially if you have your own car while you're away on your holiday as it recommends drives around a number of areas. The only downside to the book (and all others that cover a 'region') is that it can't drill into the detail in any one place although it does a very good job of pointing out the key attractions of each location in the Italian Lakes area. I took 2 books on the area on holiday, the other being the Rough Guide to the Italian Lakes which is much more text driven and focuses on alot of useful, practical information. Between both books I got everything I needed to ensure that I covered everything I wanted to while away.
