A reader's review:
Frommer's Italy from $50 a Day, (Paperback)
I travelled alone through Italy with this book by my side. It was such a valuable tool for finding cheap lodging and great places to eat. The book breaks up lodging, meals, and shopping by the regions of Italy. The only criticism that I had was that it neglected to cover the southeastern regions of Italy, where I felt I could have used the book even more so than in a city like Rome. All in all, I felt like I had the insider's track on Italy, and as a result, I had a great time and came home with many wonderful memories.
