KIRKUS REVIEW

An impersonal guide to Italy, efficently arranged and well documented as to points of interest, accommodations, restaurants, tipping, etc.. Beginning with a brief history from ancient to modern times of the country as a whole, a theoretical Grand Tour is then described covering nearly all the points of interest in the country and with especial emphasis on the most popular stops- Rome, Naples, the hill towns, Florence, Venice and Milan listing the sightseeing highlights, recreational areas, available entertainment and special festivals of each locality. An appendix contains useful information on transportation, a classified list of hotels and a list of sports facilities. A businesslike traveller's aid.
