Michelin Green Guide for Italy Jun 19, 2008
The Michelin Green Guide is still the best. It will turn you into your own expert guide. The star system lets you select the best spots to fit into your time frame. It will fit into your pocket, but it is not a light weight guide. Durable and easy to use, it is a classic.
Valuable but... May 9, 2007
I bought this because I had had the Michelin Red Book of Germany (all Red books are in the language of the country) and needed an English version for Italy. This is not the English version of the Red Book Where I found the Red Book to be invaluable in Germany (in 1996), the green book is less so.
The pictures, illustrations, and maps are an improvement over the Red book but the hotel ratings are limited by comparison and the English is apparently translated by the French from Italian and is not exactly idiomatic -- whether your persuasion is British or American English.
If you're from the USA you'll probably get more of what you want from Frommer or Steves.
Good as expected Apr 2, 2007
I ordered the book to plan my trip to Italy. Unforunately, delivery took 150 days, thus I already traveled over North Italy and saw all major sites. But, when I recently received this Guide, I noticed that there are a lot what I missed. So, this book brought new bright ideas for the new travel!
