  • I LOVE ITALY And until I can retire there in a few years, books like this help keep me sane What a wonderful travelogue of SO many places in Italy, of the sights, the people, the FOOD You can almost picture the scenes, the smells and the tastes It s a long book, over 400 pages The better to savor it slowly, reading one chapter at a time The only complaint I have, and as this is an advance reading copy, maybe it will be fixed in the final product , is that there were no photos The add I LOVE ITAL [...]


  • 4.5 starsMayes brings her delectable writing style to the pages of this travelogue memoir guide for all of us who wish we could take two weeks to walk in her shoes Italy isn t just a place but an attitude and way of living, something Mayes makes clear through gently describing the distinctions between one little town and another This is not a book you pick up with your map in hand to help you plan your trip to Italy so much as it is like a first date or first date in a long time with the Ita 4.5 [...]


  • I am a huge fan of Frances Mayes The first time I read Under The Tuscan Sun I knew it was, for me, a life changing book, and I was right I fell in love with all things Italian because of her words and descriptions I could taste the food she described and the scents she smelled could visualize the details of her house and her travels I ve read every book she s written since then, and was so excited to receive an ARC of her newest book on travel in Italy, See You In The Piazza.I could never b I am [...]


  • I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review From the publisher, as I do not regurgitate the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it Bestselling and beloved author Frances Mayes discovers the hidden pleasures of Italy in a sumptuous travel narrative that crisscrosses each region, with inventive new recipes celebrating Italian cuisineThe Roman Forum, the Leaning Tower, the Piazza San Marco these are the sights synonymous I r [...]


  • This book is a bit of a departure from the other books you might have read by Mayes It s a love letter to Italy, a journey through some of the lesser known regions and towns of la bella paese She takes you beyond the hubbub of Venezia and Firenze, off the beaten path to Modena and Calabria and a slew of places in between I love that she intersperses recipes throughout the book, lending both history and color to her selections It s not so much of a guidebook as it is a book for the armchai [...]


  • Richard Saul Wurman wrote the Access Travel Series from the late Seventies to about 1998 These books offered a quirky view of the locations they covered, filled with suggestions from local residents, and entries about unusual stores and sites that are ignored by most other travel guides I loved traveling with those guides, which always left me feeling like I had experienced some of the actual culture of a place, not just the cultural or historic sites that are highlighted in most travel guides R [...]


  • If you can get past the immense privilege on display in Mayes love for expensive sit down restaurants and plush lodgings, then yes, you will be charmed and transported by the descriptions of food, history, and Italian life Better read one section at a time, rather than straight through as you would a guidebook SEE YOU IN THE PIAZZA would be a much pleasurable reading experience if it contained photos, maps, drawings, and other visual support for her travels.
