#4165 The world’s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places reinvented the idea of a travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek magazine wrote, it tells you what’s beautiful, what’s fun, and what’s just unforgettable – everywhere on earth.
And now the best is better. This edition has 600 full-color photographs. Also, more than 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries such as Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences; for example, an entry covers not just Positano or Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi coast of Italy.
Every entry from the original edition has been rewritten and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, including moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm, while also covering starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz.
