Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not enough content for Southern Italy & Islands I rated this high as I would most Eyewitness Travel Guides, as they are generally superior to other travel guides. However, this guide's content is somewhat deficient when it comes to Southern Italy and the Islands, with an apparent emphasis on the more popular tourist destinations, particularly in Central Italy. Also, the exclusive use of the Fahrenheit scale for temperatures is a questionable oversight since the majority of the world use the Celsius scale, including Canada where this edition is sold.
