Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This large format book contains details of around 125 gardens throughout Italy, by region, with a one page, or double page entry, according to interest or importance. Realistic, rather than 'art' photographs, and the book is good value for what it does. There is a good index and bibliography. I would recommend.

Very small print, information (opening times, address etc) is not with the write-up, it's under a separate section. Pretty useless really! Not impressed with the book, rather disappointed!

Nice to read and view , but it seems a small collection of available gardens. There are so many more 'Best' gardens!

Very nice book, a bit heavy on the writing as it is in very small print but full of information and easy to read. Would have liked larger pictures and a little more info on where the garden is, a small map at the start of each chapter would have been helpful. If the print and pictures were larger I would have given it 5 **

This is a comprehensive book, great as an overview, but a bit dated now. The basic visitor information is useful to some extent but obviously there is more up to date and reliable info on the relevant web sites.
