Format: Paperback
This 2011 Edition of Fodor's Italy is beautifully presented and includes a sprinkling of full-color plates (e.g. the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the interior of the Pantheon; servings of regional specialty foods). The book is organized by region and the general presentation of each region is cheerful and enticing. Text is copious, clearly written and packed with useful information: the expected mix of attractions, opening hours, where to eat, what to eat in each region, where to stay, how to get there and so on. There are interesting set-up sections for each region, major city, and attraction, with historical notes as appropriate. We have found in our tours of Italy (and other European destinations) that Fodor's recommended restaurants and places to stay are well-selected, with offerings at different price points.

Maps are a very strong point. The back of the book contains a fine pull-out map of Rome, with the Termini rail station at the far right edge but with the Piazza dei Cinquecento (right in front of it) clearly visible. From here to the left, the map clearly locates and labels the central Rome sights most tourists want to see--Piazza del Popolo is at the far north, the Aventine Hill and Trastevere are at the far south and Vatican City is at the right of the map. Major streets are boldly labelled and slightly less major streets are also clearly legible. Venice gets similar treatment excepting for the islands in the lagoon (a more general map on p. 216 shows them and also locates the airport.) Within each section of the book there are detailed neighborhood maps in color of the major cities and places tourists might like to visit. For Rome, these detailed maps extend the coverage found on the pull-out.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a general overview of attractions, restaurants, and hotels, however, it is not a complete guide and lacks essential information. For instance, restaurants and hotels recommendations are not highlighted on the maps--so one does not get a perspective of where a restaurant or hotel is located in relation to an attraction. In addition, city maps are provided for major cities but not smaller cities. Furthermore, information regarding ticket packages for museums which are highlighted in other guides are not shown here.
Overall, if you travel with this guide, which is quite heavy, you will need additional information to get you through your trip.

I used the internet for hotel information. The book guidelines for what to do are very good and you should have the book with you as you tour. You may change plans as you tour and see you have time and are close to another attraction. Lots of valuable information. Useful for referring back to get the names of places after you saw them. Nice photos too.

great tour guide. WE used it on our three week trip to Italy. The map of Rome was terrific and we lived with it in our hand. A lot of great tips. Almost to much information to wade through. However, very thick and heavy. I cut it into sections and only carried the section I needed for that day.
