    1. This was my first Fodor's. A little intimidating after some of the smaller, more concise travel books I'd used before. 440 pages. But Italy, for me required a lot of depth before I went to make sure I understood the history (very complex) and the relevance of the art treasures and the gifted creators who made everything we wanted to see. Even after two trips, we haven't even begun to scratch the surface.

    2. I recommend this book for travelers visiting the Vatican. This section of the book is very comprehensive. It includes tips on wait times, various collections (i.e Egyptian art), appropriate dress, and items to bring with you (i.e binoculars to view the Sistine Chapel).

    3. This was such a great tool in planning our trip to the three main cities that this book focuses on. Each night we would plan out the things we wanted to do the next day and because this helped us plan so well we always had time left over to do more things!

    4. I downloaded this on my Nook so I would not have to carry books on our trip to Italy. I found this to be the most helpful in reading about the sights we were seeing--both before and after.
