    As you'd expect from a guide by Dorling Kindersley, this is a beautifully presented book, full of colour illustrations, photographs, and interesting and easy-to-read bits of information. The guidebook covers Naples, divided into 6 areas, with maps and places to visit in each. There are also 2 suggestions for guided walks within the city, each taking in a number of sights.A separate section then covers the Amalfi coast, listing the main villages and towns, with chapters on Pompeii, Vesuvius, Herculaneum etc., and illustrations, photos and suggestions for places to visit in each. There are small maps for some of the towns and for Pompeii and Herculaneum. A section at the end lists hotels and restaurants to suit all budgets. We found the information to be pretty accurate, and the suggested sights were as described (when they were open).My main criticism of this book is its lack of practical information. For example, it tells you that you can get the Circumvesuviana train to Pompeii - but not that it doesn't run after noon on certain public holidays even though the site is open all day. It tells you that you can drive, and the main road to take, but nothing about parking once you get there. It doesn't warn you that the station at Herculaneum is at the top of a long hill, or that the only snack bar inside is closed on certain public holidays - which can be important if you're travelling with children or older people. There is little or no advice on accessibility for people with disabilities. The maps are patchy, with only some roads labelled - I found the map of central Sorrento was fine for walking around, but the road maps of larger areas were too vague to navigate by, and the two maps of Pompeii missed off far too many streets and features to be much use.This is a lovely book to read before you go on a visit to the region, and after you get back to remember what you've seen and done, but there isn't enough practical information to make it the only guide you need.

    Beautifully printed and clearly set out. Used this for a trip to the Amalfi coast and it highlighted some hidden gems to explore. Also included some good restaurant listings and tips. Excellent coverage of all areas, including Pompeii and Vesuvius.
