Naples and the area - a superb guide!
on 31 October 2009
I have used many Dorling Kindersley guidebooks and they are all visually stunning.
This one keeps up the excellent standard. If you like interesting history and architecture and decent food then this book is for you.
This volume - exceptional value - is all you will need for the area of Naples and the Amalfi coast.
So, what's inside? Maps of all the important parts of the cities, history of each area, important places to go with addresses and opening times. The travelers needs section gives information on places to stay and eat, shops and markets in the areas and the entertainment that's available. I love the drawn "exploded views" of buildings - these are really quite superb! Also the plans of Pompeii and Herculaneum are great.
In fact everything you could want to know and see.
Most impressive areas in the book are: Naples, Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum, Sorrento, Paestum, Capri & Ischia. Quite a stunning line-up!
I whole-heartedly recommend this DK book. A brilliant book for a stunning area of italy! Enjoy!
