He's a curious writer and he delves into the nature of each place, with an eye for the details with a goal of showing his readers what it's like there.

Whether you've been there or not, this book is a must-read for anyone with an interest in Italy. You can pick through it as fast as you like, and then go back and savor the wonderful photos at your leisure. There is also an amazing amount of information packed into the text, in a manner so digestable that you won't even realize that you're learning some really useful stuff. It's a great primer for the first-time visitor, and for those who have already been there, it'll bring back memories of just how lovely that country is. If this volume doesn't get those travel-juices going, I don't know what would.

This book is a great read. It's a collection of stories having to do with everything Italy, and if your looking for inspiration for your trip to Italy, this is the way to go. The stories give first hand accounts of food, places and activities, so you know what to expect when you get there. This compilation also includes a ton of great pictures. If you haven't been inspired to visit Italy, you will be once you read this book.

Vacation stories from a variety of people. This book will make you want to get off the beaten path. Even though i have been to Italy many times, there are many places in this book that I would return to see. Not for the quick and conquering tourist, this guide has descriptions of ancient sites to great restaurants that you can see and experience if you take the time.

I love this book! I'm going to Italy next year and this book just really does it for me. I wish I could go to every place described in such beautiful detail. I am truly psyched!

This was great - a nice little compendium of short easy to read Italy stories. Unique compared to normal guidebooks, and priced well.

It's a little hard to keep track of all the places but probably more my fault. I think it's a good book if you want to delve into it more with a map in hand.

The thought of traveling to Italy can be overwhelming. What do I do? Focus on the museums? The food? The countryside? Thanks to GoNomad's Plane Reader I could do it all. Awesome links, beautiful pictures, and thoughtful prose make this a "must have" guide. The information was accurate and entertaining. Who knew that travel writing could be so delightful? These GoNomad Plane Readers are the PERFECT introduction to a destination. I also enjoyed re-reading pieces on the way home because they aren't "just" destination guides--they are stories, really well written stories.

The best part of Gonomad is that they won't do the tried and the tested so is true of this Italy plane reader. Want to hike in Italian Alps, explore castles or wish to take a cooking vacation to Postiano, you will all find it there. A delightful read.
