A comprehensive practical guide that ostensibly caters to all budgets, though independent travellers looking to stretch their funds will doubtless find it most useful. Detailed travel information sits comfortably alongside thoughtful historical and cultural insight. Colour sections devoted to Italian food and wine break up the otherwise rather bland presentation.
Comprehensive all-round practical travel guide that also boasts plenty of insight into local history and culture. Includes detailed notes and maps on the GR20 trail and illustrated sections on 'Traditional' and 'Wild' Corsica. Recommendations cover all budgets with a bias towards the lower end.
Comprehensive general guide for budget-conscious independent travel, balancing reliable practical detail with good contextual reading. Chapters on Pisa, Chainti, Siena and so on are just as good as those on Florence.
This is the first edition of the Rough Guide to Tasmania and features the usual excellent selection of accommodation, restaurants and sights. Also includes some good information on visiting Tasmania's natural beauty spots.
An exhaustive practical guide for independent travel with plenty of sightseeing information and well-written background reading too. Glossy sections on local wine and the Cathars add a splash of colour.
By far the best guide for Tenerife, this includes a terrific 'Ideas' section with suggestions on where to find the best shopping, art & architecture, watersports, beaches and places to take the kids amongst many others.
