Travel Guide to Italy: the Piemonte Guide Piemontescapes

Best-selling Books & Website Recommendations

Looking for a really great travel guide to Italy? Here you will find all of the best-selling travel guide books, plus my personal recommendations by region of websites that are perfect for those planning independent travel in Italy.

The Online Travel Guides

My first two are actually Blogs written by people living in the regions of Italy where they live. Both are simply excellent.

Your Piemonte Guide

Building upon her successful and much loved Blog, "Creative Structures", Diana Strinati Baur has transferred her seven years of insider knowldege of Piemonte (Piedmont) into a new Blog called Piemontescapes - the tastes and textures of northwestern Italy - Here you will find a wonderful array of information that will guide you through the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of this beautiful part of Italy. Even if you aren't planning a trip to Piemonte in the immediate future, bookmark Diana's writings for those moments just for you - with a cafè and favourite pastry - and read about the Ligurian and Piemontese cuisines, the wines and wineries... If you don't book a flight after doing so, I will wager that Diana's gorgeous photographs will have trying out a recipe or two! Enjoy.

Travel Guide to Umbria: BrigolanteShe also offers bed and breakfast accommodation that is an oasis of relaxation, with reviews that make you want to book straight away. I will be booking in one day soon!

Your Guide to Umbria

Rebecca's posts about life in Umbria and the region itself are true gems. Written in a wonderfully relaxed style and with an equally wonderful sense of humour, they are brimming full of information. Which explains why her Blog, "Brigolante" - - is so well loved and followed by many. If she ever decided to publish her posts as a book, it would become a best sellers overnight.

Don't be put off by the title, "Brigolantes Guest Apartments", in the photograph above. Yes, Rebecca does offer (great) accommodation but my inclusion of her Blog here isn't a publicity for that. Brigolante is a rich resource for anyone wanting to discover Umbria from the inside. I cannot recommend it highly enough as an addition to your more regular travel guides about the area. Find out about the festivals and beautiful villages, the food and the wine... as though you are already there.

Enogh said. Rebecca, find a publisher!

Travelling to Europe - Italy, Spain, France

by ocrider

My girlfriend and I are going to take a trip to Europe sometime in April. I have been to Spain and France several times, but never to Italy. We are planning to visit Rome but I don't know how to best navigate the city. Our plan is to arrive in Paris and then fly from their to Rome and then to Spain (Madrid or Barcelona) on a cheap European Airline. I speak Spanish and French, at least well enough to get around, but I don't speak Italian.
I'm looking for suggestions and information on the following:
1. How to travel from the Airport in Rome. Do they have a metro system like Paris? I prefer not to take a taxi, as they are usually pricey

The train was just one leg on an enthralling trip touring the Golden Triangle, India's most popular northern cities of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. I confess I have had a long, bordering on obsessive attraction to the Rajasthan region.
