Review:

Tuscany and Umbria are famous for both their glorious scenery and their superlative cuisines--could there be a more perfect vacation than walking through the countryside, stopping to dine along the way? In Walking and Eating in Tuscany and Umbria authors James Lasdun and Pia Davis offer readers 40 itineraries ranging from half-day walks to routes stretching over several days. There are written directions for each walk as well as a map. There is also a chart for each itinerary outlining travel alternatives such as buses, trains, or private automobiles and a list of restaurants along the way. Each itinerary describes the sights and terrain in charming detail, and though you might want to supplement this book with other guides specific to each area, this one does a nice job of balancing the demands of cuisine and countryside in a single volume.

About the Author:

JAMES LASDUN IS THE AUTHOR OF TWO COLLECTIONS OF SHORT STORIES AND TWO BOOKS OF POETRY. HIS WORK HAS APPEARED IN THE NEW YORKER, PARIS REVIEW AND THE LITERARY TIMES SUPPLEMENT. PIA DAVIS'S FICTION HAS APPEARED IN PEQUOD AND OTHER PUBLICATIONS, AND SHE RECENTLY COMPLETED A NOVEL. THEY LIVE IN WOODSTOCK, NEW YORK.
