Wild Italy
A Traveller's Guide
Tim Jepson

5 7/8" x 8 1/4" • 224 pages • full-color photos, maps
ISBN 9781566563642 • paperback • $19.95

"Turning a corner, I found three little old ladies sitting on a tree trunk. Dressed in their Sunday best and chattering away like small birds, oblivious to me and the mountains, they might well have been playing a hand of bridge."

Venture beyond the great Renaissance cities of Florence and Sienna, drive a short distance from Milan, Venice, Rome or Naples, and you come to another Italy - by turns lush and verdant, rugged or parched, the countryside of ancient Rome, of Dante and St. Francis of Assisi.

Wild Italy helps you find all the most beautiful landscapes unspoiled by the modern world, taking you down the entire peninsula from the snowcapped peaks of the Alps and Dolomites to the heat of Sicilian summer, where the scirocco wind mercilessly scorches the plains and dunes that foreshadow the deserts of North Africa.

Evocative color photographs and line drawings illustrate the main text, which is complemented by fact-packs offering walks, activities and useful information on each locality. Maps help with journey-planning, and each exploration zone, of which there are more than seventy, is rated according to its degree of wildness.

Tim Jepson is an Oxford graduate. He has contributed to the Rough Guides and Fodor Guides on Italy and is the author of Umbria: The Green Heart of Italy.
