Book Description: Eyewitness Travel Guide: Italy leads you straight to the best attractions Italy's kaleidoscope of regions has to offer. Packed with photographs, illustrations and detailed maps the guide explores every facet that makes the country irresistible — from the Alps in the north to the sun-blessed Mediterranean shores of the south. This guide provides all the insider tips every visitor needs, from soaking up the romance of Verona, basking in the warm evening sun in Tuscany, or gaping at the ancient ruins lining the streets of Rome. There are comprehensive listings of the best hotels, villas, resorts, restaurants, and nightlife in each region for all budgets, as well as 3D cutaways and floor-plans of all the must-see sites plus street-by-street maps of the major cities and towns. DK's Eyewitness Travel Guide: Italy explores the history, classical origins, architecture and art of this stylish and charismatic country — and still finds room to recommend a wine to go with the risi e bisi or the maccheroni con le sarde. With up-to-date information on getting around by train, boat, car, walking in cities and all the sights, beaches, and resorts listed town by town, Eyewitness Travel Guide: Italy is truly indispensable.
