This guide is designed for optimal navigation on eReaders, smartphones, and other mobile electronic devices. It is indexed alphabetically and by category, making it easier to access individual articles. Articles feature information about attractions, landmarks, districts, transportation, cultural venues, dining, history and much more. Addresses, telephones, hours of operation and admissions information are included. The guide is complemented by clearly marked maps that are linked to city attractions. An interlinked phrasebook as well as a pronunciation guide are included.

This travel guide also features an itinerary with our suggestions for your travel route. Itineraries include links to individual attraction articles.

NEW FEATURE: The attraction articles now include links to Google Maps. On a dedicated electronic reader with a slow connection and a primitive browser, Google Maps will display the attraction on the map along with metro stations, roads, and nearby attractions. On an internet-enabled device such as the iPhone and the iPad, Google Maps will even show you the route from your current location to the attraction you want to go to.

    By Thomas Bradley
    This guide is an excellent tool both for someone who has never been abroad and the most avid traveler. Having this little reference tool will prevent you from ever getting lost and give you the feeling that you're in your home country. And that is where it only begins. I loved the phrasebook, which taught me basic Italian phrases and the instructions on getting around in a car, train, and even a boat. What really made this guide stand out, however, is the itinerary chapter. The itinerary actually gave specific instructions on taking a tour of Sicily, even including unexpected details like the time to get up in the morning. And while I was on the train, I read about the history of the country and learned some phrases. An invaluable tool!
