Umbria guide --easy to read and follow Mar 13, 2007
guidebooks need to have both an overview and detailed descriptions of tourist sights. This guide accomplishes both purposes! In fact we bought one for our son-in-law and one for ourselves!
Excellent maps of each town Mar 20, 2002
This is a very useful guide when visiting the many hilltowns in Umbria. There are excellent maps of each town, and good written descriptions. Using this guide book it is easy to keep one's bearings. The size of the book makes it easy to carry as well.
