  6. Italian Ways: On and Off the Rails from Milan to Palermo

    Italian Ways: On and Off the Rails from Milan to Palermo

    Regular Price: $25.95

    Special Price: $17.56

    The best-selling author of Italian Neighbors returns with a wry and revealing portrait of Italian life—by riding its trains.

    Tim Parks’s books on Italy have been hailed as "so vivid, so packed with delectable details, [they] serve as a more than decent substitute for the real thing" (Los Angeles Times Book Review). Now, in his first Italian travelogue in a decade, he delivers a charming and funny portrait of Italian ways by riding its trains from Verona to Milan, Rome to Palermo, and right down to the heel of Italy.

    Parks begins as any traveler might: "A train is a train is a train, isn’t it?" But soon he turns his novelist’s eye to the details, and as he journeys through majestic Milano Centrale station or on the newest high-speed rail line, he delivers a uniquely insightful portrait of Italy. Through memorable encounters with ordinary Italians—conductors and ticket collectors, priests and prostitutes, scholars and lovers, gypsies and immigrants—Parks captures what makes Italian life distinctive: an obsession with speed but an acceptance of slower, older ways; a blind eye toward brutal architecture amid grand monuments; and an undying love of a good argument and the perfect cappuccino.

    Italian Ways also explores how trains helped build Italy and how their development reflects Italians’ sense of themselves from Garibaldi to Mussolini to Berlusconi and beyond. Most of all, Italian Ways is an entertaining attempt to capture the essence of modern Italy. As Parks writes, "To see the country by train is to consider the crux of the essential Italian dilemma: Is Italy part of the modern world, or not?"

    Naples and the Amalfi Coast are a lot like its most famous daughter, Sophia Loren: lively, sensuous, charming, and stunningly beautiful with a natural form that could only be created by God. Ms. Loren has said that everything she is she owes to pasta, but you can’t help wondering as you pass clusters of beautiful women if it isn’t something in the water as well. Whatever it is, spend enough time here and it’s bound to rub off on you.

    Perhaps it’s the passion that seems to flow through everything you see and do in this gorgeous setting on the bay. At a restaurant, order a plate of spaghetti vongole with tender little clams from the bay and the waiter congratulates you as if you’ve just won the lottery (you may as well have it’s delicious!). Explore the tiny streets of the Spaccanaploi and hear a cacophony of exuberant conversations complete with enough hand gestures to qualify as aerobic activity. Wander thru the ruins of Pompeii and see the public declaration of sensual delights in the form of provocative mosaics and statuary. Cool, calm and collected is not Naples fiery, flamboyant and alive is more like it.

    Our STREETWISE® Naples Italy Map enables you to be part of the passion. Explore the heart of the city thru winding streets past historic churches, open markets spilling with fruits and vegetables and the ubiquitous cafes. Every Italian city seems to have a least one Café des Sports Naples has several - where the debates about soccer reach UN proportions. The Museo Archeologico Nazionale houses the restored treasures from Pompeii including mosaics of astonishing detail and finesse alongside the famous Farnese Bull, sculpted in the 3rd century BC. The inset map of the Naples area will provide the information you need to drive into or out of the city, whether it’s to the airport or venturing further south.

    Out of Naples, you can drive to the ruins of Herculaneum or Pompeii, and afterward continue on to the Sorrento peninsula. This is possibly the most romantic place on earth. Word of warning: choose your traveling companion carefully because you will fall in love it’s that romantic! The hill-shaded map of the Amalfi Coast depicts all the twists and turns of this beautiful 50 kilometer stretch of mountainous coastline situated between Sorrento and Salerno. The coastline is dotted with small picturesque villages like Amalfi, Ravello, and Positano which are stacked precariously on steep cliffs above the Gulf of Salerno.

    The famous Island of Capri is nearby, possessing jaw dropping beauty. Day trips to Capri can be a bit trying with the crush of tourists packed into the Piazza Umberto I, and boats lined up like planes at LaGuardia waiting to get into the Blue Grotto, but if you’re lucky enough to stay overnight you’ll witness the transformation of the island once the ferries carry away the last day tripper. A quiet descends and the island truly becomes a magical paradise suspended in time. Experience this once and you will dream about it forever.

This quirky guide to the Italian way of life, with its fifty witty mini-essays on iconic Italian subjects, will answer that question as well as entertain and delight both real and armchair travelers. Topics range from expressive hand gestures to patron saints, pasta, parmesan, shoes, opera, the Vespa, the Fiat 500, gelato, gondolas, and more. History, folklore, superstitions, traditions, and customs are tossed in a delicious sauce that also includes a wealth of factual information for the sophisticated traveler:• why lines, as we know them, are nonexistent in Italy• why a string of coral beads is often seen around a baby’s wrist• what the unlucky number of Italy is (it’s not thirteen, unless seating guests at a table, when it IS thirteen–taking into account the outcome of the Last Supper)• why red underwear begins to appear in shops as the New Year approaches In addition to the lyrical and poetic, Italianissimo provides useful and indispensable information for the traveler: deciphering the quirks of the language (while English has only one word for “you,” in Italy there are three), the best place to find balsamic vinegar (in Modena, of course), the best gelato (in Sicily, where they first invented it using the snow from Mount Etna). There are also recommendations for little-known museums and destinations (the Bodoni museum, the Pinocchio park, legendary coffee bars).This is a new kind of guidebook overflowing with enlightening and hilarious miscellaneous information, filled with luscious graphics and unforgettable photographs that will decode and enrich all trips to Italy–both real and imaginary.
