Having tried different travel books, my preference is for the lonely planet series. I like the writing style, the format and the detail. It is difficult to do justice to any country in any travel book. As I had hoped this book gives enough detail about the key places of interest and useful explanations about the key sites. I use these books for pre-departure preparation. I usually base my itinerary on anthing which piques my interest. This is a good book for that. I have travelled twice to Italy and purchased this book to prepare a third voyage (having not used a book on the first two). The lovely photos and emotive descriptions give you the envy to visit certain places over others, and for me this is the research value of a travel book.

I spent a couple of summers in Italy and this book spent them with me. A good insight into some of the more obscure things to do, especially on a small budget. From paying 50 cents to cross the Grand Canal on a Gondola to watching the sunset from the hiltop in Florence, you're sure to have a magical time.

A very, very good guide for people who have not been in Italy before.

Most of these country-wise travel-guides fail to give distances between various focal points within the country, by road, or by rail-- this factor, would help the tourist/ traveller plan his/ her journey, by day or by night.

Just like any another Lonely Planet Bool, plenty of information, directions, descriptions of all sorts, restaurant guide a bit misleading though
