Blue Guide Emilia Romagna
Compact and informative. Almost perfect.
By Christopher Chinnery
Bought for a short visit to Ferrara. It is a very handy size but much more informative than any English language guide I could find in the usual London shops. In the tradition of Blue Guides, it is well writen and informative with a strong emphasis on art and architecture. I like the lack of illustrations which only add to the weight, break up the text, and serve no useful purpose. I intend to use it to visit and re-visit other towns in Emilia Romagna. The maps are useful for arriving by train, then getting around on foot and cycle (the best way of seeing all the towns in this flat region).
