Chasing Cezqnne by Peter Mayle. Not a travelogue but a fun "mystery" with a romp from Paris to the Rivera. Big Fun!

Also, Goethe's "Italian Journey" is a must.

Corelli's Mandolin takes place on a Greek island, not in Italy...and is fiction. But highly recommended .

Not for Europe, but for the US, "Blue Highways: A Journey into America" by William Least Heat-Moon is terrific!

hey JG,

italian education and italian neighbours is a nice light read. his perspective on life is interesting and respectful...i like how tim parks writes b/c he's a father writing about the simple pleasure of life. He really brings the area to life [the good and bad ].

I think you'll know if you like tim parks' style by the first few pages....give it a try.

Not a travelogue but Peter Mayle wrote a fiction work "Chasing Cezanne" a mystery through Paris and the South of France. A fun story with good descriptions.

"Three men in a boat" by Jerome K Jerome - priceless.

"without reservations"- a middle-aged female journalist took half year off travelling in Europe.
