KIRKUS REVIEW

The fourth in a series of lightweight travel guides pegged to women who want to make the most of their opportunities to meet men en route. The general advice--travel alone, linger in lobbies, be receptive--hardly qualifies as news (the misplaced words ""France"" and ""French"" in our galleys suggest that Tully's said it before too); but the susceptible reader is pointed toward the most promising hotels and restaurants in the nicest places--chiefly Rome, Florence, Venice, and the lake and Mediterranean resorts. (Industrial Milan and maritime Genoa are ""not really women's cities""; Naples is perilous, Sicily is hostile.) And there's a rundown of tours and landmarks, beauty parlors, shopping streets, and assorted stores to fill free moments. Fodor, however, offers a fuller experience, and for higher-class pickups there's Fielding.
