Excellent guides; perfectly summarized reviews of major destinations, tourist attractions, shops and restaurants, separated out by neighborhood with maps and ratings. Along with Eyewitness Guides, these are some of my favorites.
I've used these books in the past for most of my travels and have been very pleased. During a previous trip to Rome, I used an earlier edition Access Rome book as my Bible. It was extremly informative and useful. Unfortunately, since then they have changed the design of the maps and have not updated the book accurately. Many of the places I tried to visit had been long gone, inaccurately positioned on the map, or the descriptions were not appropriate. Unless they changed these items for the 8th edition, I would warn against using this book as a primary source of information. Also, the maps did not incorporate the locations of the Metro stops and Taxi stands into the neighborhood maps, like other travel guides have, which I found to be a neccessity for travel around Roma.
First used them in 1992. These books are great guides. They are sectioned by neighborhood. The map is easy to read and the information is concise and accurate. You spend more time actually looking at the city and less time reading. It has the added advantage of being color coded. It gives you restaurants and hotels, and historical and current information.
We have used the Access books for travel for over 20 years and found them the best source for planning our travels. We have been to England, France, Greece, New York City, Washington, D.C., Ireland and have well thumbed Access books for all of these places and loved them all! If you are a seasoned traveler, or someone who is just getting started in your travels, try Access, you won't be disappointed!
Without a doubt, the best travel series EVER produced. They break down a city, neighborhood by neighborhood, so that if you're in a certain part of a city and go to a museum, you can walk out the museum and it's very easy to locate a place nearby to go shopping, have a meal or a couple of scoops of the best ice cream that city has to offer.
Generally useful but many errors -- owing either to carelessness or outdating. An example of the former is that the guide lists Volpetti's as a place to buy cheese, etc; but neglects to mention that there is another one that's been around longer and which we very much favor. The index is poor. For example, it does not list Bramante's Tempietto, a truly remarkable and beautiful structure; rather, one has to know the name of the church alongside which it sits to find this wonderful work. At times incomplete; for example, the index does not include the Villa Tornolia, a wonderful if only slightly off central Rome to visit. Overall, needs work.
Best West
I love the Access guidebooks. The only time they were better was when each category ( restaurants, hotels, museums etc) was printed in different colors. I wish they published a new one each year. The writing is precise, plentiful, accurate and informative. One is given a great deal of information, while at the same time not overloaded. A great guidebook. Use them for everyplace you go.
Out of date, but still useful for descriptions
