About the book
Unforgettable artwork, heavenly villages, island paradises, dream cities...there are so many reasons to visit Italy that deciding where to go and what to do can be a bit overwhelming. Fodor's Essential Italy takes the guesswork out of choosing the perfect Italian experiences by compiling the top choices chosen by Fodor’s army of Italy-based writers.
The major attractions of the big three—Rome, Venice, and Florence—are given at-a-glance treatment, alongside top itineraries, Best Bets for restaurants and lodging, and what to do whether on your own or with the kids. Our user-friendly 'Experience' chapter helps in planning for the most memorable trip, cueing you in to Top Attractions, Top Experiences, Italy Today, What's New, and a multitude of other information. Easy-to-scan recommendations run the gamut from alfresco dining in Venice to the art treasures of Florence; how to trek the Cinque Terre; and where to find the best beaches along the Amalfi Coast.
