A more original way to visit Switzerland. If you do not like the paper copy, it is also available in Kindle edition.







          GERMANY

          Lonely Planet Germany (Travel Guide): this is a guide that does not need any presentation, but sometimes I found some disappointing Lonely Planet travel guide. This is a guide that does not disappoint you: it is comprehensive and essential to show you the best and essentials spots in Germany.







          FRANCE

          Michelin Green Guide Alsace Lorraine Champagne: great guide if you want to visit the Central- Eastern France, I bought it to visit Alsace and I could keep it for the next trip to Champagne area. Definitely recommended.








          A great and complete travel guide that will help you in traveling this wonderful area. Personally I found it very useful in order to visit the main attractions, but if I wanted to visit also the off the beaten path places or hidden gems I could find what I need. 

          It was the first National Geographic Traveler Guide I have ever bought and it rocks!
          Absolutely recommended. You can get in your own language.


          SLOVENIA
          DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Slovenia:

          A good and essential travel guide with some good insights and tips if you want to travel along Slovenia. It points out off the beaten path plances and things to see and has good city/towns maps.

          So for a traveler that loves the off the beaten tracks, this is a great guide. I also recommend the Merian guide, if you speak Italian. However, if you want the DK Eyewitness Travel guide in your own language.



          CZECH REPUBLIC AND SLOVAKIA
          DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Prague - probably the best Prague travel guide
          available, following the rating on Amazon. Enjoy it! :-)

           

           

           



          Rick Steves Prague and Czech Republic: ideal if you do not want to limit your trip to Prague but also explore Czech Republic. Also available in Kindle Edition.

           

           




          Dk Eyewitness Czech and Slovak Republiks: once it was a unique country, but if you want to visit both countries as I did, this is the guide that contains the information you need. Only paper copy.

           






          Bratislava (Bradt City Guides): there are not so many travel guides about Bratislava, but if you decide to spend a weekend there, this is what you need to visit Bratislava and the surroundings.









          NORTH AMERICA

          UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
          Lonely Planet Eastern USA (Regional Guide)

          If you are planning to travel to the USA and to visit especially the cities this is the right guide for you!

          There are many tips about the cities, their history, what to see, main attractions and off the beaten path attractions, and something some weird or odd things too! :-)

          You can get it in your own language by clicking here.






          This is absolutely recommended if you are planning a road trip in the U.S: 99 road trips are shown and illustrated with some interesting tips and ideas.

          It is a good travel guide that helps you during your trip itinerary. I used it and followed the "Best of the Eastern Coast" itinerary, designed from Boston to Miami. My advice is that if you think about stopping in a particular city for more days and need more tips, the previous guide can help more than this one.

          RECOMMENDED BOOKS

           


          El oro de NĂ¡poles:

          A great book written by Giuseppe Marotta, translated and edited by Pio Caro-Baroja in Spanish. A masterpiece that tells the stories of different characters in that Naples that was facing the difficult period after the World War II. A pleasant book to read and also a portrait of an Italian big city after that war.
