"Readers of the second edition of Tim Jepson's gem of a book will be [...] thanking the author for leading them away from the obvious in Italy – the cities and galleries, the beaches – and into the wild."
The Sunday Times

"Beautiful photographs and excellent maps [...] He encourages you to visit the wilderness of the Abruzzi or experience the excitement of Mount Etna."
