    Is This the Right Book for Me?

    Should I get this Snapshot guide in addition to the full-size Rick Steves Italy guidebook?

    Nope! Our Snapshot guides offer no additional information beyond what's in the larger guidebooks — they're simply excerpted chapters from our full-size guidebooks. Snapshot: Italy's Cinque Terre covers the exact same topics as the Cinque Terre and Italian Riviera chapters of Rick Steves Italy — the same hotels, same restaurants, same sightseeing information, same everything. (Our Snapshot guides are, however, updated less frequently than our full-size guidebooks.)
