About the Author
Right out of college, Darwin Porter wrote the
first-ever Frommer's Complete Guide, and it was devoted to Italy.
(Up until then, the title had been designated as one of the
Dollar-a-Day guides.) Since then, this devotee of all things
Italian has covered "The Peninsula" from its Alpine peaks to its
"toe" and has kept abreast of the enormous changes the country has
experienced over the years. In 1982, Porter was joined in his
journalistic efforts by Danforth Prince, formerly
of the Paris bureau of the New York Times. This
Italian-speaking disciple of Italy's art, architecture, history,
and cuisine has also been personally experiencing and reporting on
the glories of Italy since that time.

sights. You'll also get up-to-the-minute coverage of shopping and
