Are latest edition guide books worth it?

Jump to last reply

I've narrowed down the places I'll be visiting this June: 4 days each in Florence, Rome, and Naples. I've found a lot of helpful advice online, but want to look into some guidebooks for more detailed info about general tips and different places to go and things to do. At $20+ per latest edition guidebook though, getting a few would cost more than I care to spend on them. I could get 2-5 year old editions for dirt cheap. I suspect the only thing latest editions really have over the older ones is up-to-date hours and pricing, which I'll be checking online for anyway. Any other good reasons to justify the premium paid for latest edition guide books?
