New Map Italy

Unforgettable Experiences for the Discerning Traveler

From the unusual to the spectacular, this book is the ultimate visual guide to the finest hotels, unique places, and authentic travel experiences Italy has to offer.

Today’s discerning travelers are not merely looking for the best accommodations and eateries, they’re seeking a unique experience. In this age of low-cost flights and easy travel, sponsored search results and thousands of indistinguishable reviews, how do you avoid the crowds and find the hidden gems? Tried-and-true knowledge from an authority on the ground is what makes the difference between a good experience and a truly memorable one. In this new guide to Italy, travel expert Herbert Ypma surprises and delights with his unparalleled eye for detail and his unerring ability to separate the exceptional from the mundane.

The experiences Ypma maps out across the length and breadth of Italy include the best places to stay, eclectic adventures, legendary places to eat, and historical sites to visit enhanced by nuggets of fascinating history. Brimming with beautiful new photography of every location, as well as hand-drawn maps and illustrations, this book visits all of Italy’s best-loved regions, including Sicily, Naples, the Aeolian Islands, the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Matera, Puglia, Rome, Lazio, Umbria, Sardinia, Florence, Tuscany, Milan, Lake Como, Verona, and Venice. Combined with Ypma’s insightful text, New Map Italy is as unique, authentic, and distinctive as Italy itself.
