needs better maps Apr 19, 2008
The copy I have has the same ISBN number as the one shown here, but the numbers specifying what is included in the guide listed on the cover are different. This guide has plenty of information but one thing that is very frustrating is that it doesn't tell you where certain things mentioned in the text are located. The larger scale maps of Umbria are rather weak . An example of missing information pertains to the section "medieval umbria." A number of places are mentioned in that section but there is no information as to their location.
