    My husband and I loved this book, written by a man who was a native. He mentioned his favorite restaurants and favorite things to do in the villages surrounding Lake Como. Very helpful

    I am planning to have a vacation in Milan for the Expo 2015 later this year, and I was looking for some destination in Italy where to spend one or two weeks visiting additional locations. I found this guide very useful as it describes the attractions with words but also with a lot of nice pictures. I found the links to the restaurants very interesting, I tested them and they work as expected. It is always good to have the choice between several restaurants, and not only the one or two usually recommended by the other tourist guides. I tested the guide on my Samsung Galaxy S3 smart phone using UB-Reader, and I could use the guide using just one hand! Overall: Very impressive result!
