Clearly not the same book then.

Buy this one:

http://www.hoepli.it/libro/guida-cam...881465231.html

Has the best maps of Italy I know bar none and is incredibly simple to use as well as having the largest number of sosta.

It was crap

A waste of money

We cross checked it constantly with Camperstop

Unfortunately we didn't have camper stop

Fortunately those we met did

So what is the actual name of this awful book ?

Might be handy to know in case anyone contemplates buying it .

I can't remember it as we bought it last year at the last moment and then just referred to it as that bloody sosta book from then on . Have to say I didn't realise that there was a choice so didn't research it as we have always been happy with the aires books. Not going to Italy in the near future but will be looking for tips when we do.

It's called Aree Di Sosta Grizzly

The map is separate and as Gbp says is useless as a navigation aid

We didn't even get a separate map with ours which might have accounted for why it was so dire (the maps in the book didn't have any regional indication or roads marked on them, just a few village and the occasional town name and random red dot splodged about that didn't have any reference or identification on them.

Who publishes this useless book ? There are large numbers of books with Aree di Sosta in the title - like the excellent Guida Camper Aree di Sosta..... !

Well ours was quite some time ago
No maps in the book at all
Just the loose map that accompanied it

Now I'm no genius with maps etc

But neither was anyone else we showed it to
