Inhaltsangabe: Cadogan's original and best-selling three-cities guide is now in its fourth edition--and travel companies consistently cite this combination as their most sought-after Italian tour. These are three remarkable cities, with three remarkable stories to tell. Rome went out and conquered the world, and in its retirement came back to remake itself as Europe's most ornate capital. Venice built itself up from a Dark Age swamp to become a fairy city of canals. Florence built its empire on finance and wool, and lavished the profits on art and science. Cadogan explores their three very different characters: stately Rome, with its Coliseum and the Sistine Chapel; dreamy Venice, and the eternal romance of a gondola ride along its canals; and Florence, bursting with more paintings, sculptures, and monuments than anywhere else in Italy. They all combine to offer a sublime introduction to the country, or a perfect multi-center trip for travelers with limited time. Cadogan's essential guide uncovers the divine, the great, and the quirky in each city.
Special features includes:
*Discerning listings: top shops and local markets, 200 places to sample the best of Italian cuisine, and 120 carefully chosen hotels and apartments
*Color photography captures the grandeur and vivacity of these ancient cities
*Easy guidance through the streets and sights with detailed maps and site plans
Essential Italy - three dazzling cities that capture the spirit of a fascinating land. First there's conquering Rome, monumental and complex, still glowing from its Jubilee polish, where the ancient rubs shoulders with the modern at every turn; then fairytale Venice, goddess of the sea, packed full of beauty and art, intrigue and adventure; and finally, proud intellectual Florence, heart of the Renaissance and initiator of a new way of seeing. For a short break or a longer stay, Cadogan's guide seeks out the famous and the infamous, the classic and the quirky, plus each city's version of la dolce vita - the delight Italians bring to the everyday things in life.
Inside you will find: practical travel advice; over 100 handpicked places to stay; over 150 restaurants, bars, and cafes; stunning color photography; food and drink advice with a practical menu reader.
