A travel guide to Italy that includes information on major tourist attractions, hotels to stay, places to eat and nightlife as well as shopping.
Italy has a wealth on offer, from artistic masterpieces to amazing hill towns to some of Europe's best beaches. From far northern reaches in the Alps to the sun-soaked Mediterranean shores and islands of the south, the "DK Eyewitness Travel Guide" explores this charming country from tip to toe, highlighting the best about every province and city. Whether you wish to explore renaissance art in Florence, Monumental Greek ruins in Sicily, or Romeo and Juliet's Verona, you'll find cutaways and floor-plans of all of Italy's magical major sights. This new expanded edition includes top attractions, beaches, markets and festivals listed town by town, whilst walks, scenic routes, and thematic tours will ensure you wont miss a miss a thing. All along the way, the guide summarises all you'll need to know about the history, the architecture, and the art - and still manages to recommend which wine goes best with the risi e bisi or the maccheroni con le sarde.
