The Kindle Edition of Barbara Zaragoza’s travel guide: The Espresso Break: Tours and Nooks of Naples, Italy and Beyond (ISBN Number 978-0-9835099-2-9) is now available for readers to download in minutes.
The Espresso Break re-creates the Neapolitan cultural feel of the city (old is better) using both tours and nooks to go deeper into the ancient Roman ruins, wandering through the mazes of medieval Naples, and rising to the modern twists of Neapolitan espresso.
Kirkus Reviews recently featured the book in their 7/1 Magazine, and said: “In her debut travel guide, Zaragoza puts together the ultimate companion for readers planning a trip to Naples… Zaragoza takes readers from the heights of Mount Vesuvius to the ruins of Pompeii and beyond. Part atlas, part history lesson, part epicurean review, this comprehensive handbook to Naples is without peer.”
At Armchair Traveler, Jim McDonough said: “This is an amazing piece of work.It wears the label of a travel book, but it is so much more—there is Italian history, Roman history, Greek history, archeology, art history, Italian culture, WWII history, several very interesting looking recipes, restaurant recommendations, hotel recommendations, and a fairly cogent explanation of current Italian politics. And, oh, yes, an incredible amount of information about Naples and surrounding areas.”
In addition to the ebook and paperback, the travel guide is now available internationally on Amazon.com sites in Italy, the UK, Germany and at other countries. You can also find more about Naples at Zaragoza’s website: Naples (Napoli) Travel Information Guide.
