Press & Praise

Take Napoli Unplugged with you! You’ll have the best guidebook to this complex city. The writers are insiders with in-depth knowledge of the distinct neighborhoods, history, and unique pleasures of this most beguiling of cities.

Frances Mayes

Author, Under the Tuscan Sun

This looks like all you need to know to get the most out of a visit to Naples… one of my favourite cities.

Professor Mary Beard

English Classical Scholar, University of Cambridge

A wonderful, comprehensive guide to the jewel of southern Italy – filled with charming images, candid descriptions, interesting & quirky facts, it’s an essential on any Italophile’s bookshelf.

Gennaro Contaldo

Masterchef, presenter, with Antonio Carluccio, of BBC’s Two Greedy Italians, Gennaro Contaldo

Informative, up to the minute and as lively and fun to read as the incredible city it covers.

Ben Hatch

Bestselling author of Are We Nearly There Yet? and The Road to Rouen and, co-authored with Dinah Hatch, Frommer's Guides England With Your Family and Scotland With Your Family., The P45 Diaries

Napoli Unplugged is perfect. A friendly, assured, unintimidated companion for the great city of extremes.

David McConnell

Author, The Silver Hearted and occasional Neapolitan, The Silver Hearted

Love the book. Part guide book, part history lesson, part culinary tour. I feel like I've been there already! First thing into the suitcase.

Will Stirling

I missed dinner because I was so engrossed in the book. It includes history, stories, detailed info on art, architecture, neighborhoods, markets, and more. What I love most are the stories on notable  Neapolitans & those they call “spirited SHE-apolitans. So much more than a travel guide, it’s a guide to understanding and loving Napoli, just as these ladies do.

Kathy Ayer

Chef & Culinary Vacations, Food Lover’s Odyssey

What a fabulous book! So much info. This will be a Godsend on our annual hols. And very fast delivery – I only paid for it on Thursday! Thank you all, one very happy customer!

Debbie Sewter

Penny, my copy of Napoli Unplugged arrived today, and it is magnificent! The engaging writing style captivates the reader, and the book provides a wealth of useful information. I can hardly put it down! A million thanks to you and your team for creating such an incredible resource. I am going to order a copy for my friend who will be traveling with me to Naples this fall.

Melissa Nabbe Matusevich

Totally agree (with Gennaro Contaldo). I haven’t read a Naples Guidebook in a long time because they just don’t get what the city is about, they don’t understand the stories and what they mean to the heart of the city, they don’t capture the present day humans of Naples – but this book does. Kudos to you Bonnie and your team. Terrific book.

Melissa Ussery

Napoli Unplugged is more than just a guidebook. It’s an intimate look at the fascinating city of Naples through the eyes of those who know it well. Beautiful artwork, maps, detail, this fabulous resource offers something for every traveler. I found myself absorbed in the descriptions and passion for this ancient city and can’t wait to have this in hand on my next trip to Naples.

I usually go for another well crafted travel series of books for reading a great travel guide when about to go on vacation, but this one is such a fabulous encyclopedic guide to majestic Naples, Italy and the wonderful surrounding area, I would choose this book instead to carry with me, or to research ahead of my visit. Napoli Unplugged is pure treasure! Read the entire review on Goodreads.
