Reviews - What do customers think about Special Places to Stay Italy, 4th (Special Places to Stay)?
Don't look for budget accommodations here Jul 15, 2007
I wish I had known that the hotels pay to be featured in this volume. Had I known I would not have purchased it. The author discloses that properties pay to be included, and the company does check them out; however, most of the properties are between $150 and $200 or higher per night. The book is well written and organized, buy only if you have lots of money to spend.
Great information & presentation Apr 11, 2007
I haven't gotten that far into the book yet, but so far it's worth every penny. Great details and beautifully presented.
Buy the whole series! Nov 23, 2006
I bought the French B&B's title from this series for my belle-mere as we are both Francophiles and dream of a long saunter together through this beautiful country. She let me spend about five minutes with it, but I could tell she was desperate to get it back, so I purchased Italy, and French Holiday Homes for myself. I'm planning a holiday in Italy next year and this book is wonderful. And I say this as someone who works in a Travel Agency which specialises in Italy and France. The photographs and descriptions make you want to stay at each place. The little details make it easier to choose your accommodation. I just wish there were as many Italian books in the series as there are French. I know that I shall be collecting the whole series as guides, and just for dreaming.
