I usually buy these guides when I travel for my pleasure, so it seemed a good idea to buy this one when I had American friends visiting , and I wanted to introduce them my city in a thorough, well-informed way. And it was a really good idea indeed! This volume is consistent with the other ones in the series: the Eyewitness may not be as updated or insightful as the Frommer about hotels or restaurants (though I found the Milan listings generally good), but it's virtually unbeatable when it comes to find your way around a city. The many maps and, above all, the amazingly detailed 3-D drawings with the itineraries are entertaining and real time-savers: thanks to the visual approach you don't waste a lot of time trying to understand if the old building you're looking at is actually the one you were looking for! As a native , I found the big "X-rays" pictures of the "big attractions" ( the Galleria, the La Scala Opera, the Castle, the Duomo Cathedral) especially well done, but I also could find at least a couple of off-the-beaten-path attractions I didn' t know ! As ever, the guide also provides an informative presentation of the social and historical background of the city. Finally the "practical life" section (money , transportation, aiports) is extremely well done and clear. We also used the guide for a trip to Lake Como and Bellagio (astonishingly, I had never been there before!) and the whole thing was smooth and exhaustive. The texts are, as ever, somewhat succint but not too simplistic : they tell you more or less what you need to know, and the (unavoidable) inaccuracies are few.Read more ›

This is the state-of-the-art tourism book. After dozens of titles edited during the last years, Eyewitness really did it! I used to live in Milan and it's a great place to spend some days, along with the lakes. The coverage of the main lakes (Como, Lugano, Garda) is amazing!
The main attractions in Milan are also covered (the Duomo, the Scala, Il Quadrilatero etc).
Excellent!

This book is great. It divided milan into smaller sections so it's easy to figure out where everything is located. It's rare to find so many pictures that are as big and clear as they are in this book. There's also a street finder map in the back, which is very helpful. It really helped me prepare for my upcoming study abroad trip to milan.

Read the book and decided to skip Milan and go to Venice instead! But it did give me the desire to go to Bergamo and I loved the city.

This book is fairly comprehensive and when we were at a loss for ways to entertain ourselves at lake Garda, the guidebook helped find ways for us to fill up the day.
