Neat compact size for taking out each day, information is well set out, clear and easy to follow with good pictures and maps. I think it covers everything I would need of a guide book, sightseeing, restaurants, cafe, tours, special interest, shopping etc etc.

My only dissapointment is the smallish section on Lake Maggiore, where I am visiting!
It's very comprehensive on all the Italian Lakes, so would be invaluable if hiring a car and touring around.

I have used DK Eyewitness guides on many occasions when travelling and always found them to be one of the best wherever your destination!

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 3 May 2015
Format: Paperback
This 128-page book is a colourful and informative guide to the attractions of the Italian Lake region; for real visitors and armchair travellers alike. It has all the usual features, including excellent maps and articles. There are excellent colour photos breaking up the text columns, so you can see what you are looking for. It is a handy up-to-date guidebook, with all the usual topics a tourist guide provides, as well as chapters on the top ten sites ((Isola Bella; Northern Lake Maggiore; Orta San Giulio; Como; Milan; Verona; Centro Lago & its villages; Bergamo; Lake Idro & the Valvestino; Sirmione & Southern Lake Guarda).

The Contents include -
P005: The Italian Lakes’ Top 10
P059: Around the Italian Lakes (Lake Maggiore & around; Lake Como & around; Bergamo, Brescia & Lake Iseo; Lake Garda & around; Milan & Southern Lombardy)
P101: Streetsmart (practical touristy information)
P112: Places to Stay
P118: General Index
P128: Italian Lakes Town Index

I have a large number of these travel guides. What I like about them is their format - each book gives an overview (rather than lots of detail). It provides a summary of what is on offer. Inside is not just the obvious i.e. the Top 10 sights to see. Also you get things like the Top 10 museums & galleries, Top 10 markets, Top 10 Arts & Crafts, Top 10 events etc. - even the Top 10 things to avoid. That makes them very useful, and a unique approach to travel guides. I use them to decide what to do, and then use another book (or a website) to give me more detail if I need that.

In this book you get things like:
 The Italian Lakes' Highlights
 Isola Bella
 Northern Lake Maggiore
 Orta San Giulio
 Como
 Milan
 Verona
 Centro Lago and its villages
 Bergamo
 Lake Idro & the Valvestino
 Sirmione & Southern Lake Garda

Top 10 topics include:
 Top 10 Moments in History
 Top 10 Walks
 Top 10 Festivals
 Top 10 Outdoor Sports
 Top 10 Cycling Routes
 Top 10 Culinary Specialities
 Top 10 Works of Art
 Top 10 Swimming Spots
 Top 10 Gardens
 Top 10 Children's Attractions
 Top 10 Elegant Bars & Cafes
 Top 10 Shopping
 Top 10 Great Journeys

The book in its physical format is small - just small enough to fit inside a DL envelope (i.e. the standard white envelope, designed to accept a sheet of A4 paper folded twice). It is actually a few centimetres shorter than a DL envelope. This compact size makes it easy to fit into your pocket.

This book can't provide detail - it can provide `the big picture'.

I bought the kindle edition of this guide and it did not work very well, very hard to navigate, links did not always work, blank pages between some sections made it very confusing. I didn't keep it got a refund from Amazon. As for the content I can't comment, only recommend to buy the real book.

this gave information on lots of nice places to visit which we made use of but it was spread about too much. I had to put markers in with headings on to save time searching for something I knew I had seen earlier! The maps were very handy as they were laminated so didn't tear and could withstand any dampness that might occur.

I have used a number of the DK Top 10 Guides for city breaks: Rome, Venice, Copenhagen and Stockholm, and found them invaluable. The Italian Lake guide is trying to cover too large an area and provides very superficial information. Fortunately we had other guides to refer to for more detailed information.

Bought for a recent holiday at Lake Maggiore, the 'DK Eyewitness Top 10' is a great concept and provides a baseline for adding more detailed guides and information.
