Dana Facaros, Michael Pauls. This work delves into Tuscany's lavish natural beauty: the dense concentration of Renaissance art that spills out of Florence into Pisa, Lucca and Arezzo. It helps the reader cheer on Siena's frenzied Palio; wander through the sumptuous vineyards of Chianti; explore the medieval hill towns of green Umbria; and visit historic Perugia over the Tiber Valley, the newly restored monuments and architecture of Assisi and the famous cathedral of Orvieto.

Our regional guide to Umbria. I adore the Umbria guide published by Cadogan Guides

Our regional guide to Umbria. Read an excerpt from this book: ‘After the Earthquakes: Art versus People’. I adore the Umbria guide published by Cadogan Guides. I have never met prolific travel writers Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls, but when I do I will either take them to dinner or marry them. They did live in Umbria for a few years, and their knowledge of and affection for this region permeates every page of their instructive, engaging, and light-hearted writing. This is the guide you want.

I have made many trips to Italy after spending my junior year of college in Rome in 1970. I have also spent a lot of time learning about the language,art and culture of the country.I beleive that the cadogan guides are excellent.They describe the entire picture to the traveller, not just as you are passing through a town or village but they include the market places to visit, the festivals and regional food to try.I took four women through Italy last summer using two of the cadogan guides to help facilitate these two weeks. I would highly recomend them for any country that they have created a guide for .You will not be disappointed,but rather come back with an appreciation as well as memories from the area that you visited. Sincerely, Marsha Droppelman

All of the Facaros & Pauls Cadogan guides are fabulous. We own a half dozen. Their wry humor is entertaining, the guides are thoroughly researched and I like the amount of history and cultural background provided.

Many of the guides have little bits of guiding included: "The road south from XXX passes by YYY..." That's helpful.

Get the Cadogan relevant to your trip.

The only disappointing thing about the series is the company's lack of support for eBooks. I don't get that. But at least buy and read the paper editions!

I returned this book. The description says it is a new edition, but it is over 10 years old. Misrepresentation
  • Swift Summer
This American version (Globe Pequot) of the much lengthier, more recently published British edition of the Cadogan Guide to Tuscany, Umbria, and the Marches was a real disappointment. It was in good condition--but it was published in 1990 and is too old to replace the well-worn, much more informative guide I've used for several years while travelling in Tuscany and Umbria.
After I got the guide, I went onto Google.uk and found that a much more recent version is available in the UK.

Another smart and informative volume from Cadogan, my favorite travel guides. Will use thoroughly as we explore another great chunk of Europe!
  • Thomeena
Was not as useful as I had hoped it would be.

We have used this book to explore the area just south of us for 4 solid years. Every time I open it, I am surprised and delighted at its depth, the authors' erudition, and the daring way in which they are often judgemental about what they observe. Of course, it has all the practical stuff as well, but it is the culture and history that makes this so great. Their eloquence surpasses the medium by several orders of magnitude.
Warmly recommended. These are the best travel writers in the business if you are looking for just that unusual perspective to add to your explorations. And you can read it again and again and see more.
I've been to Tuscany ten times over the past decade and have always used Cadogan, to my mind still the best out of the scores of other guides that have sprung up since, including the Rough Guide. They may not always get the phone numbers right, but the authors' make each corner of this beautiful region come alive with their knowledge and witty writing. The new 6th edition has a greatly expanded section on the Marches-a lovely region that no other book in English covers very well at all.
