This "book" is an extract from another book about Italy. Unfortunately, there is so little written about each of the locations around Lake Garda that I'm sure you would learn more from a free leaflet in the local tourist information office. It didn't take me long to realise that this book provided no useful information to enable me to plan a trip to the Lake Garda area. It was returned for a refund. Have since ordered the new Rough Guide to the Italian Lakes, which is an excellent and comprehensive guide to this region.

I bought this guidebook as it was new out and there isn't much on the market about Verona. We didn't want that much information as we were only going for a weekend - but weren't quite prepared for how useless this would be. There are a total of 13 pages about Verona - including one map which is too small to actually read and only contains about half the streets in centro storico. Once you'd taken out the hotels/getting there bit, you were left with about 2 pages actually about Verona.

Don't waste your money - buy a map when you are there and spend the time just wandering around. Just remember most places are shut on Mondays.

I can only echo what other reviewers have said and I wished I'd read their reviews before I ordered - my mistake! The title is misleading. You would expect a book titled 'Verona and Lake Garda' to have a substantial amount of material about those places. But it doesn't! There is scant information about Garda - just 17 pages in total and it's no help if you are planning a stay on the lake and you want some ideas about what to see and how to get there. There is little more about nearby Verona. The rest of the book is devoted to other towns of the region. The small book covers a wide geographical area with consequently very brief information on each place. Maybe it's handy as a quick guide if you are touring around but it still is very lacking in detail.
The title should be changed to reflect it's content.
If you want a Lake Garda guide, try the Marco Polo guide. It is small and light and gives some useful information on the various towns and villages on the lake. If you are going to Verona there are a number of guides available that are better than this one. The Rough Guides are always good and although the 'Italian Lakes' one has a lot of pages you won't need if you are just visiting Garda, it does have really good information about places to visit, including Verona, as well as a wealth of helpful stuff about food, culture, history etc.
