The first one I bought I liked more than this one.
However, the guide still provides information that enables you to know the locations of these stores and places to shop
while you are visiting Italy. I never throw these guides away.
Some of the stores on both guides I own still serve the public, so it is wise to keep them.
With the economy and rising Euro, I urge Suzy to look for more affordable stores... and more "cheap and cheerful" items to take home. For example, I enjoyed my visit to the UPIM. It's a great place for affordable costume jewelry, Italian soaps and cosmetics. I also liked the clothes... and the price... plus there's a nice UPIM at the train station. I also found a fun store called "LA LA" which sells cool jewelry for between 10-20 Euros. The Vatican post office is a treasure box for quality religious items. Affordable, Vatican sanctioned and Pope blessed.. Who could ask for more? Lastly, don't overlook the street vendors and newsstands. They're a great source for scarfs, calenders and cheap murano glass necklaces. By the way, I love Suzy... It's just cheaper now to buy your Prada and Tods at Neiman Marcus here in the states... Don't go to Rome thinking you're going to fill your closets.
If the shops she reviews are as poorly done as these hotels and reatuarants I don't think I will take the trouble to find them.
