   The BEST guidebooks!
We ordered several Rick Steves' pocket guidebooks for our trip to Italy. We did not research the best guide books and ordered them from Amazon. com. In fact, we were not disappointed. The information is presented in a way that is easy to understand without giving you too much. The team suggests restaurants, sites and rates what you should eat there. We were able to read them on the train to our next city and feel comfortable with what we were doing and how to get around by the time we arrived, Mr. O'Neill said. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
   Must have for greater enjoyment!
Reference work by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is also cited. It was very helpful, Mr. Dhaliwal said of the bullet. RICK's free Iphone audio app has short walking tours, perfect for those who want to keep up with the Joneses. Several of the tour operators have said they recommend that people download the tour information onto their phones. We like just the big facts and we get to visit famous sites, learn a few great things and move on, Hollingworth said. It's great to be dragged along by a tour group, Tunick said. It allowed us to control our pace and most audio stuff was 30 minutes, and with a few pauses it was just the right size, Mr. Cowger said. The book was very accurate and easy to carry around in your back pocket, the author said. It's just that I can't imagine traveling without it.
   Excellent book, use with downloaded audio tours.
The book was excellent — it gives you the history of each site to visit, along with details about the current state, to help you avoid lines and save money. Really good pictures, Mr. Goin said. What was even better is the ability to download AUDIO Files about these locations from his website, and listen to the audio guide while you are looking at the actual sites! In the Colosseum in Rome, we listened to the downloaded Rick Steves Audio Tour instead of buying a local tour. That alone saved us money, Hollingworth said.
   Buy one for each city you go to
Even with its hefty hardback, the Pocket Book is an easy carry. The majority of the book is spent on actual highlights, walking tours, and recommendations, and it doesn't waste too much space on the travel basics' that every book always includes. The walking tours and info are just the right level of detail, enough to get you what you need to make sightseeing enjoyable and informative, but not so much that you lose what is important by spending your time with your nose in a book. It's free, but the tips on saving time in lines are worth the price of the book alone.
   Makes you want to head to Rome post haste
I went to Rome to visit my wife several years ago and it was a whirl wind tour. I am planning a quick trip to San Francisco in October and will be using a travel agent. Accommodations and tours were handled by the tour operators. Even with being familiar with areas and tours up front, I found information provided by Mr. Steve extremely helpful and interesting. My friend and I discovered places, museums, events and even haunted houses. We were not aware of Mr. Steve's visit but have placed on our must see list thanks to Mr. Steve. His knowledge of protecting important items, safety out of the main stream places to eat and just enjoy was invaluable. After reading this book, I purchased a couple of items from his site and additional books of his for Vienna and Germany. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
   It's great. You'll be glad you bought it
He added that the new taxes won't affect people as much as people think. It's great to be back home, but if you want to get a good map, you have to buy one. The maps, for example, do not have enough detail to properly represent the locations of terrorist acts. Also, there are some general inaccuracies in the report. The Victor Emmanuel Museum is located a few kilometers from the Vatican. When you get down, you have to go down and back up. There is a rope leading to the front door of the Sistine Chapel and a half-dozen Vatican guards stand guard. His cut short was one of the main reasons we did the Vatican Museum instead of Borghese. 0 3171158 3171171201 He also said that the Vatican Museums were better suited to the needs of the time. There are some restaurants he has not reviewed in years.
   This is a perfect size for my purse
You could use some help with that, Mr. Rule told the judge. It has a fold-out map, too, so you can take notes. A great little book, Simon.
   Great book!
Can't wait to use it in Italy! Easy to fit in a compact purse, useful information, quick to read! Great maps, said Gillian.
   A valuable resource
My boyfriend and I did the 'big three' in Sept-Oct 2017 and had a pocket guide with us wherever we went. His Europe Audio smart phone app for both the French and German markets sold out in minutes. We didn't stay in hotels as we chose for Airbnb's advantage, but we took advantage of so many tips and tricks that we otherwise wouldn't have known about. It's great to be back home, said Blair, who has had good things to say about the guides. I purchased one of the bigger ones, but I didn't use that much. We also saw quite a few people in Venice, Florence and Rome walking around with the same book. Do yourself a favor and don't borrow your friends, uncles, cousins, old travel guide from 2005 if it's your first time in Europe.
   Perfect fit and great for travel. Make sure the map is actually attached.
The guide pocket itself has some great recommendations and history of the cities, too. It hasn't been updated in a while, so not all of the restaurants are still there. The seller didn't mention that the map was taken out so that was an annoying discovery. Steve's also has an updated version of his game, which might be better if you want an updated version. Overall, it's a great guide book that doesn't take up too much space and weight in your carry-on, saving you money on fuel.
