I am a great fan of the eyewitness concept.i It is clear easy to use and has the most fabulous descriptions, outstanding city maps, insider information that adds spice to traveling. The restaurant guide is marvelous and has so many wonderful tips. I am planning a trip to Italy next year and this book is just the right thing informative easy to handle. The cultural background info is outstanding.This will be my 8th trip to Italy and Eyewitness just makes it easy to plan and fit in the most into a short period of time with all the little tit bits to make a holiday really special and memorable.

Chock full of data and photos to make informed decisions about visiting Italy. Maybe too much. I have my book marked with the locations to visit, have used the maps in planning routes, and found the Survival section quite informative. It does not have the Steeves'-orientation or preferences, is more objective to me. Nice pictorial representations of town squares and tourist blocks.

If you like to see photos rather than read descriptions, this book is for you. It weighs 2 pounds - might be more than many want to carry in a backpack or purse.

I love the DK Eyewitness Travel series. The guidebooks give you everything you need! This one is organized. By regions of Italy: southern Italy, Rome and Lazio, etc. Within each section you get tons of color pictures guiding you to what to do and see, maps to help you get around, information about getting there, phone numbers, hours of operation, and transportation information. I took a trip around Europe in college with the Europe DK book several years ago and that is a good general book, but if you are just going to Italy, this book is detailed and will give you so much information it will be the only book you need!

If you're looking for a thorough, user-friendly series of travel guide books, look no further! These books are full of practical and interesting, historical information that is so well presented. I've bought these over the years for domestic & international destinations & have never been disappointed. They also provide interesting reading prior to your travels as well.

You can't go wrong with eyewitness books. The photos made it really easy to determine what we wanted to see in the amount of time we had in an area. I always get both eyewitness and Rick Steve's for our travels. The recommendations here are great.

I love all of the Eyewitness books & buy them before I travel. The colored photos help you to visualize things & bring them to life.

I purchased 3 guidebooks for planning a family trip to Italy. This one is by far the best. It is packed full of useful information including information on small towns and areas that are not the usual tourist destinations. Lots of pictures and even a small section on helpful phrases depending on what the situation is. Lots of listings and ratings of where to stay and eat. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It will be the first one I turn to when we are on are vacation.

When we travel to a country we buy a travel guide from this series. They don't go out of date as easily as some. This replaced an earlier copy we must have loaned to someone. The book gives an overview of a country. Illustrations encourage. It is easy to read. When we travel we get a Frommers to help with restaurants and hotels. We take this because we prefer the way it shows us the country. We keep this one.
