5.0 su 5 stelle Can't take the negativity any more; bought my own copy to see 14 novembre 2012
Di DonGiovanna - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
First off, I want to make clear that I am in no way related to Rick Steves or his organization. I am just a consumer so, as people say on Twitter, my views are my own.

My family and I have been travelling to Europe every 2 years since 2005 when my kids were little and I have used Rick Steves's guidebooks on all our trips. Everywhere we go, we would spot his signature blue books and, those of us who tote it would recognise/nod/smile/greet those others who also flash it, finding an instant camaraderie with each other. This means that those of us who like Rick Steves and his advice are sort of a siblinghood -- you must subscribe to his way of travelling. What is that way, you ask? Look on the back cover of every one of his guidebook and it says "Get the most out of every day and every dollar." That is Rick Steves's and his followers' creed!

I was happily and satisfactorily using the 2012 Italy book to plan my upcoming trip when I chanced upon the 2013 edition and was shocked by the scathing reviews. I decided to buy myself a copy from my local B&N just to see what everyone was complaining about. I will say that each new publication doesn't differ that markedly from the previous year's, only with updated info (hotel rates, entrance fees, opening/closing times), so too is the 2013 edition. And well it should be because, once it's been written, there's not much else to write about the same monuments, castles and art work that have stood for centuries.

Yes, the cities, hotels and restaurants listed in the book are Rick's personal recommendations but they are merely suggestions. In this information age, it would be remiss of you not to let your fingers do the clicking. Go online and search for more hotels and places to see. TripAdvisor is chocked full of everyone's opinions on every place on earth, even not on earth (Mars, if written tongue in cheek). Sometimes, you can find better and cheaper hotels than Rick Steves's recommendations from everyday travel Web sites. This guidebook is a great start to get your travel ideas flowing but you do not want to rely on it solely. Use it as a skeleton and main muscles but beef up with other online information.

So what kind of travellers would best benefit from Rick Steves's guidebooks, Italy or other countries? I can tell you who his guidebooks AREN'T meant for and it is those who want to visit lesser-known places, those who are on their 20th trip to that country and trust-fund/sponsored full-time travel bloggers. I myself am just a regular (for there is no middle-class any more) working professional who has 3 weeks of vacation days a year. Hence our every other year trips because, when we go, we go for three solid weeks! I belong to neither the backpacking crowd nor the Four Seasons chocolate-on-pillow-and-turn-down-service crowd. My trips are somewhat complex because we hit multiple countries; they involve (domestic) planes, (occasionally) trains and (mostly) automobiles. I budget our trips to the penny -- right down to food/ticket prices/fuel/toll/ferry crossings, just so we don't overextend ourselves while we are there and suffer financially when we get home. This cumulatively means that I use Rick Steves's guidebooks to make the most out of our time AND hard-earned money in Europe. I use his sometimes crude, but usually detailed, maps to plan where we stay (price is not my only consideration; I go for price AND a strategic location), what to see (Steves rates the sights by 3-, 2- or no stars) and how to navigate most cost-effectively (from airport into the city and within a city). If Steves says to dispense with a rental car, usually in a busy city, sometimes I do but not always, depending on our itinerary. The Italy guidebook has a coloured foldout map of some of the most frequented Italian cities; I am using it to plan my days so we aren't flitting from one end of the city to another. I am also using it to plan where to stay which, incidentally, is NOT a Rick Steves-recommended place. How useful is this foldout map? For example, though it's not our first trip to Venice, I don't always remember where the Vaporetto stops are and where there is a Traghetto crossing. Steves's map has those minute information that often come in handy. My mother is in her 70s; I want to stay somewhere where she doesn't have to walk far *just* to get to a bridge to cross over the Grand Canal. Knowing where there's a traghetto crossing is helpful.

Additionally, Rick Steves provides good information, often in an amusing way, about the sights, information that you cannot find in every guidebook. The information is not so copious that will it put you to sleep nor is it abbreviated bullet points that leave you thirsting for more. It is written in a paragraph form that you can easily read and follow as you enjoy the sights. However, his information does not take the place of guided tour so always spring for a guided tour, if there is one.

I didn't meant for my review to be a doctoral dissertation (oh, really, you say?) but I felt a loyal duty to defend my favourite Europe guidebook author. Rick Steves has helped me plan and carry out my trips smoothly and within budget each and every time. His guidebooks are as essential to our travel repertoire as our passports and my unlocked iPhone; I can't imagine leaving home without them. Because we are such detailed travellers, we aren't even through with seeing half of Europe so I look forward to many more trips using Rick Steves' guidebooks, with his Italy and Scandinavia books next up. I only wish Rick Steves would write books on other non-European countries, places that I'm eyeing to visit such as Egypt and Japan.

5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent overview book 16 luglio 2013
Di Ammy_Evaluator - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is not a standalone book - you will need region or city specific books to complement it.

I also picked up Rick Steves' Rome 2013 and Florence & Tuscany 2013 as we were spending significant time at those locations.

However, this book works very well as a quick overview for day trips from major destinations. For instance, we did Venice as a day trip from Florence, and Vesuvius/Pompeii as a day trip from Rome.

In both cases, the information provided in this book was sufficient to ensure that we could plan and enjoy our trips.

If you are planning on a day trip from Rome to Vesuvius/Pompeii:
1. On its way to Vesuvius, the EAVbus stops right outside the Scavi station. However, EAVBus' reliability was spotty - 2 scheduled return trips were canceled without notice stranding us on the mountain (according to the driver, just those two trips were "on strike").
2. There is a taxi stand right by the station - which would have been more convenient, in hindsight.
3. Tickets can also be purchased at the Anfiteatro entrance. This worked out better for us, as it cut down our walking to the Scavi train station at the end of the day when we were exhausted.

Happy Travels!

4.0 su 5 stelle love the paper it's printed on 8 giugno 2013
Di art detective - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book was so nice to use in that the paper, and spine were constructed in such a way as to be able to open a page, and flop it open, and it would stay in that open position. This was very handy for reading on the fly so to speak, in that I did not have to wrestle with the pages blowing about, or having the book constantly memorizing a bend and going to that spot automatically. The drawbacks for the book to me were the weight (I would have liked something smaller, thinner for carrying, and something more concise for specific places or travel problems to avoid) I had some issues with the commercial aspect to some of the recommendations. I had issues in my travels that were not covered well by the book but were touched on at least to give me pause about some things, such as money changing, and train travel. I did not find information in the book, that I found with help from a tourist guide in Orevieto, such as; if you have dollars to change for Euros you can get a much better deal if you take your passport to the post office instead and change your money there. Train tickets, lateness, bin numbers, and other issues about train travel, were confusing in the book, uses language not commonly used by the local ticket sellers. He makes everything light and breezy, and does not cover enough of the nitty gritty.

5.0 su 5 stelle Selective, critical, and practical. Well done. 17 novembre 2012
Di Jon L Albee - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I'm a committed Rough Guide reader, but for my proposed trip to Italy I decided to try this very popular series. I now understand why they are so popular.

First, this guide is concise and practical. It doesn't claim to represent each and every location in the country, but is a selective overview of the sites the author knows we are interested in. Venice? Check. Florence? That too. Rome? Good to go. Perugia? Maybe not. I like its concise, selective format because it makes the book readable and useable. I'm not bogged down in page after page of minutiae, and that can be an effective stress reliever when planning an itinerary. Rick's books are intentionally "on the beaten path," but since they include such helpful hints, you'll enjoy the "beaten path" like a native.

Second, the guide is honestly written. If a restaurant's service is poor, it will be noted here. If a hotel's rooms are loud or small, it's noted here. If there's a shortcut to help you avoid a long queue, it will be mentioned. All of the Rick Steve's guides are updated annually, so you can be sure that the feedback is relatively recent. The authors also use a simple rating system for sites and listings (similar to Michelin Green Guides) that will help any reader prepare a high-quality itinerary. It really IS like having a tour guide in your pocket.

These features make this particular guide superior to others. Don't buy this book if you're looking for a visual guide full of color photography.

5.0 su 5 stelle Rick Steves' is so Helpful & Practical! 19 aprile 2013
Di Jonathan H Lynch - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
We got the Rick Steves' Italy 2013 book, and it really helps with trip planning! He includes so many helpful tips that it is worth the price alone just for those - such as how to avoid the lines at many of the sights, how to save money, what sights are worth seeing, etc. He also includes a lot of practical information such as how to use your cell phone internationally, how to ride the Italian trains and buses, what the typical store hours are and much more. I like the fact that Rick believes you don't have to spend a huge amount of money to have a great time in Europe, and that he emphasizes going with the flow and interacting with the culture you are visiting!
