Publisher's Summary

Are you planning a trip to Italy? Find out how to enjoy Italy's beauty to the fullest with a simple guide.

Italy has lured travelers since ancient times. Jutting out into the Mediterranean Sea, Italy naturally attracted travelers and invaders alike. In fact, most that came to this enchanting peninsula never left, drawn by the irresistible lure of Italy.

Italy will likely remain a popular tourist destination for years to come, in part because of the artistic sites and cultural expression that all of these invaders and civilizations left behind. Many tourists are drawn to Italy by its beaches and monuments, but many find themselves bidden to stay by a force that they cannot completely describe.

Of course, one of the most powerful draws to Italy is the legacy of Rome. Rome has left its mark in the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the hosts of sites that exist not only in the city of Rome itself but all over Italy. Roman traditions in architecture and culture are felt all over the Western world today, and many travelers come for a taste of this civilization that changed the course of Western history.

Many tourists come to Italy to see Rome, but they often stay for the host of other sites that dot the country. Rome is just one of the many cities in Italy that are worth visiting. It is not hard to understand why Rome is so popular. There truly is no city in the world quite like it, though there are many other sites in Italy that are worth an investment in time by the tourists. In Italy Travel Guide: Essential Tips for First-Timers in Italy, travelers will learn about all of the major sites in Italy worth visiting.

They will be introduced to:

  • Rome and Central Italy
  • Milan and Lombardy
  • Venice
  • Florence and Tuscany
  • Sicily

They also will be introduced to the best beaches of Italy, including some of the less traveled ones. The listener will also learn the ins and outs of planning a trip to Italy and the useful Italian phrases that they will need to get around.

Downloading this book is the first step to planning your unforgettable Italian vacation, so DOWNLOAD Italy Travel Guide NOW.

An enjoyable listen.

Overall excellent audible guide for everyone. I found from Amazon. There is a detachable map of Rome that you'll want to bring, though, if your plans bring you that way. An enjoyable listen.

Thanks for the Author for great guide.

This new Travel Guide is proving to be very helpful in helping us narrow down our choices and figure out where to focus our energies. I prefer not to use tech for calendars, travel journals, etc. Thanks for the Author for great guide.

This book inspires me to continue

The book is comprehensive, accurate, and full of background information, history and tips on the destinations, particularly major ones like Rome, Florence, and Venice. It's highly useful and informative. It can help a traveler decide what goals to see, and what places to seek out once there, and how to get to them.

If you are only going to Rome or only Tuscany, you might want a different book. If you are traveling, especially driving, this is the book to buy. Just great! Has lots of maps, directions, and hints. Grateful!!

Worth it.

Good old fashioned travel book. Can’t wait to get it all sloppy and sweaty when I get to Italy. I winged it. So this book was invaluable as we navigated through Venice, Florence, Rome, and Naples. Worth it.

Wonderful Data

Just returned from a 3 week tour of Italy and we used our Essential Italy book frequently. We visited all the cities (even the Cinque Terra region) and the book covered all regions. It offered highlights of the towns with added history and any type info needed. It pointed us in the right direction and allowed us then to discover our own favorite spots.
We're ready to return to Italy again someday as it is a wonderful country to explore!

Very informative

We did not do a tour of Italy. We winged it. So this book was actually invaluable as we navigated through Venice, Florence, Rome, and Naples. Worth it.
