I have a confession to make. Sometimes I’m a little bit of a know-it-all. It takes lots to surprise or impress me. Ho hum and all the rest. This is even true with guidebooks. As I wrote last spring, in this Tour Italy Now blog post, I’m something of a guidebook junkie. Yes I love them and yes I buy lots, like DK Eyewitness Travel’s Rome and Cadogan’s Bologna & Emilia-Romagna, when I’m planning more Italy travel. But quite frankly I thought I’d seen them all.
Until last night, when I was clicking around the Internet, and I discovered a new-to-me guidebook publisher that has an absolutely, positively wonderful selection of Italy guidebooks! The publisher is called Little Book Room, it’s based in New York City and their Italy travel books look exquisite, traditional as well as off the beaten track but not in a trying-too-hard quirky way. I am absolutely buying up as many as I can carry for my next trip to Italy. Which if I am lucky could be later this year. (You should consider going this fall, too.

Right now, The Little Room publishes 13 guides to Italy. To see the entire list, click HERE for the Italy travel book landing page.
Okay, you get the idea. I might as well buy them all!
Andiamo! Happy weekend!
Yours in discovering Italy,
