Drawing on the same standards of accuracy as the acclaimed DK Eyewitness Travel Guides, each book in DK's Top 10 series uses evocative color photography, excellent cartography, and up-to-date travel content to create a reliable and useful pocket-sized travel guide.
Dozens of Top 10 lists provide vital information on each destination, as well as insider tips, from uncovering a city's most memorable sights to finding the best restaurants and hotels in each neighborhood. And to save you time and money, there's even a Top 10 list of Things to Avoid.
Each Top 10 contains a pull-out map and guide that includes fold-out maps of city metro systems, useful phone numbers, and 60 great ideas on how to spend your day.
Excellent and almost complete. For what ever reason does not list the NH Da Vinci Hotel.
The "Top Ten" is a nice, compact guide. The "Top Ten Rome" was helpful and the maps and metro info & bus route info was helpful since we purchased a Roma Pass which was great, but lacking bus route information. The guide actually helped us utilize our Roma Pass. We found that while all roads may lead to Rome, once there, you can so easily loose your way. If you have a short time and want to make the most of your time in city, these guides help you to identify the highlights and do a good job at it. I'm replacing my Rick Steves' guides with these.
These books are fantastic for trip planning - simple to use and very easy to understand. Look forward to using it!!
I'm of the theory that you're best served with two travel books - a pocket sized, quick reference book and a larger, more indepth book. The pocket sized book is the one that fits into a cargo pants pocket or a jacket pocket.
I got back from a trip to Rome and while everyone had their tomes from Lonely Planet or Fodor's out at dinner, the DK Top Ten Rome book was the one that was taken from my hands and passed around. The foldout map helps a lot and as a result, I was the navigator as we walked the streets of Rome.
If you have an infinite amount of time to see everything in Rome, then you'll need a great book to cover everything. If you're doing a multi-city Italian tour and only have a few days in Rome, it's good to have a book like this to keep as a quick reference guide.
My friend bought the thicker full version of Italy tour book but she rarely pulls it out to use it during our trip because it's too heavy. This one is so much lighter to use and small size that it tucks away neatly in my small handbag. I recommend this highly to those who likes backpacking with light luggages!
