Review: Rick Steves' Italy 2007

User Review  - Jenny - Goodreads

I think I had the 2009 version, but oh well. If you ever travel, look up Rick's books first. His restaurant reviews never steered us wrong. His advice on attractions was wonderful. I also loved the walking tours. Take them- you won't be sorry! Read full review
