I bought this guide in 2007 when it was newly issued and have used it frequently in my visits to Naples and Campania. Whilst it has the disadvantages of brevity applied to a large geographic area, it is delightful, highly readable and never less than assured in its judgements. In Summer 2012, I took it on my tour of Puglia, along with the Lonely Planet Guide to Southern Italy. After a day, I abandoned the Lonely Planet as a reliable source. It left out too much important Romanesque architecture, which is one of the glories of Medieval Puglia. It is also rather superficial in its judgements. Whilst I agree that the Cadogan could be more comprehensive, it does have a depth and insight missing from the more up-to-date Lonely Planet. The Cadogan educates rather than merely signposting and must surely be in line for an urgent update.

Fine if you want to focus on Naples and Amalfi, but for our holiday in Puglia this guide was sadly lacking. We stayed in the central area of the province around Fasano, and found information on important tourist towns such as Polignano a Mare entirely absent. I always enjoy the lively, readable style of these authors, who are normally my first port of call, but was very disappointed with the uneven coverage of this particular book. If you are going to Puglia, the Lonely Planet guide is the only English-langauge guide worth having.

Have just had a lovely week based in Sorrento - this book gave us all of the information that we needed to explore the area. Bus and train communications are very good (though sometimes very crowded) in the area so, armed with the book +bus & train timetables, we were able to see a lot in just a week. As well as seeing Sorrento, we visited Herculaneum, Mount Vesuvius, Pompeii, the Amalfi coast and Capri; in each case the book provided us with highlights and other information on which to base our itinerary.

Why 4 stars rather than 5? Any travel book is likely to be out-of-date the day after it is published. So, for example, some of the recommended highlights in Pompeii weren't actually accessible. And the small-scale map of Pompeii wasn't easy to follow - though, frankly, nor were the maps that you could buy on-site! Still highly recommended, even though we only used less than a quarter of the book.

This has got to be the best travel writing team alive. They are highly cultured without the slightest pretention, able to find that wonderful quirky detail or perspective, and include such basics as where the good cheap eats are. We have used this book on several trips to the South of Italia and are always delighted to read what they have to say on this or that art work or hidden piazza. The intelligence in these books is subtle and unusually wide-ranging - you can tell that this couple loves to learn as well as travel. They are truly superlative writers.

Warmly recommended.

I bought the book because I am planning to visit southern Italy. I think it gives a good overview of historical important buildings, nice restaurants, ... It might guide me, I hope, to the best places.
