See the best of northern and central Italy with these 25 back-road driving tours. This DK Eyewitness Travel guide for Italy will take you off the main tourist routes and encourage you to explore the less travelled roads. Discover beautiful historic villages, experience unique cultural events or just soak up the beauty of Italy's diverse landscape from fishing for seafood on the Amalfi coast to hunting for truffles in the forests of the Apennines.

The tours are spread across the country and cover areas including the Umbrian hills and Tuscan valleys, Venice and Verona, the Ligurian coast, the Po delta, Lake Como, the Italian Alps, Dolomite and Apennine mountains and the Barolo and Barbaresco vineyards.

The 16-page introduction includes the practical information you need before travelling to Italy, from driving advice to where to stay, when you should go and where to eat. At the back is a useful phrase guide, including common driving phrases and an illustrated guide to Italy's road signs.
