This was very useful on our recent trip to Italy. We had both the Lonely Planet phrase book and this one with us, but this is the one we ended up using. We found it easier to navigate and more comprehensive than the other. It had more information and was organized more clearly than Lonely Planet. In particular, I thought the Rick Steve's pronunciation guide was easier to follow and got me closer to the correct pronunciation than the Lonely Planet book.

However, what really tipped it over the edge was its section on health and medical care. My husband and I -- who travel frequently and rarely get sick -- contracted some kind of horrible flu/sinus infection/plague on the way out or Rome and needed to seek urgent medical consultation and care from a pharmacy on the Amalfi coast. The Rick Steves guide came to our rescue because it had more than three times the amount of health and medical vocabulary than the Lonely Planet book, which we desperately needed because we had a lot of specific symptoms to communicate and the pharmacist/doctor only spoke a few words of English. Thanks to Rick Steves, we were able to explain what was going on and get the right medical information (and medicine) to help us recover quickly. I don't know what we would have done if we had only had the Lonely Planet phrasebook to go on. We might have been given cough drops instead of antibiotics.

If you are on the fence, this is the way to go.

If your goal is to just learn "survival Italian" for a vacation, you should get this book instead of or in addition to a more comprehensive and academically focused reference. With this alone, you will be better than 95% of tourists in terms of language proficiency. More importantly, this book focuses on only the common situations for travelers. So you will learn most of what you are likely to need. The organization is great, and it is easy to find the correct sections if you need to look something up.

I'd recommend this to anyone vacationing in Italy, who would like to know some of the language for necessities, or to just enhance their experience and level of interaction with Italian people.

Worth every penny! I had done the Pimsleur's Italian CDs before my trip to Venice and Florence, but I only listened to them in the car and didn't do the readings so I while I could pronounce basic Italian I couldn't read it. This is a small compact but not tiny book that is a perfect companion to take w/ you on your trip to Italy. I LOVE that the dictionary part is both Italian to English and English to Italian! And it doesn't take up a lot of room and it spells the words in Italian the way they sound. It looks a little weird but it works. Nobody could believe I didn't study Italian in school with the combo of the CDs and this book. I put this book in the back pocket of a small travel purse where I put my glasses, sunglasses, lip balm/gloss, tissues, gum whatever and a small amount of money. I put the money I was traveling with for the day and my credit cards in a money belt. My brother told me the only time Rick Steves' was ever pick pocketed in Europe was when he didn't wear a money belt. Thank you Rick Steves.

This made our trip way better. So many tourists everywhere, this helped personalize our trip. This is for the smart traveler and helps them take it all in. If you buy this you must read it and not just skim it. I was shocked how hooked up we got using this book. This is not for everyone, if you don't want to read or care about where you are and just want to zone out and have someone do everything for you, not for you. If you want to dig into this resource and explore where you are and the people and culture, take time to carry it with you and read while your walking around. Yes, this book was in our pack, pulled it out everywhere, from North to south. I can't even imagine not having this as a resource. I would have paid way more for this load of compiled info on all our stops and things to check out. Plus Rick is the best! He makes it easy for the fish out of water to find its way. Massive thanks for this fantastic resource. Also, download his audio tours, as all the cruise line tourist sprint through all the museum with their selfie stick raised high, you can sit tight and listen to all the awesome info and insight to what makes these places amazing. Thanks Rick

This was so helpful on our trip to Italy. There are a lot of people that don't speak English in more rural areas like Lake Como but they are good sports and are willing to wait as you look up what you want to say in this book. We LOVED Italy! We were so impressed with this book that we're buying the French version to work on conversational French with our French immersion kids.

This is a great, pocketable phrasebook. It's well laid out for quick references, and includes a handy dictionary (both to and from Italian) in the back. Some of the best features:

* A handy "tear-out" page with the essential essentials. Pop this in your wallet, and you'll be able to communicate any time, anywhere.
* Lots of truly useful phrases other guides leave out. In the food section, you'll even learn how to tell servers about your food allergies.
* The simplest pronunciation guide I've ever encountered.
* Italian gestures. For example, if you want to indicate you want one of something, use your thumb. (You'll also learn some gestures to avoid.)
* Humor. You'll pick up a few phrases you definitely won't use in your travels... but you'll enjoy the light-hearted touch they add to learning a little Italian.

If you're middle-aged or older, you'll probably need your reading glasses to use this guide. But it'll be worth the effort. This phrasebook should make your trip to Italy a lot more fun.
