The book combines valuable information about a little known Italian destination with details of one of the world’s largest sporting events.
Olympic details include a schedule of competition and description of each sports venue in Turin and outlying mountain villages. The book offers descriptions of important tourist sites, dining suggestions, a regional wine guide and more.
An extensive list of useful Italian words and phrases, exclusive maps of central Turin, and a thorough explanation of the public transportation network complete the guide.
USA Curling News calls it “a good buy for visitors.” An independent review on amazon.com says, “the best I’ve found on travel and entertainment.”
USA Book News named the pocket-sized guide a Finalist in their “Best Books 2005” competition.
Sajo is a freelance journalist who has lived in Italy for 13 years. His experience writing about Italian travel, sports, cuisine and culture provided the tools for a comprehensive book that will help visitors enrich their Olympic experience.
