Author(s): GERSHMAN Suzy
Suzy shops the world -- with dachshund Toffee in tow -- to find the world's best shopping buys, and passes her discoveries along to you! This is the 24th year of this series, and with a new cover and interior design --including Shop Talk industry gossip, Best Bets picks, Shopping Adventure travel tips, and more--it has never looked better. Suzy even tags her maps with personalized "hand-written" notes, as if she were writing tips on a napkin for you. "Shop& & Save" has been Suzy's mantra lately: Suzy likes luxe but she likes bargains, too. She's packed this new edition with sales, outlets, best buys, and the best gifts for less than $10. This guide covers the country from Naples and the Amalfi Coast to Rome to Florence to Venice, so you'll find everything from leather markets to flea markets to the best airport shopping to hotel shops and duty free deals -- all with Suzy's trademark wit and wisdom, plus hotel and dining recommendations.
