PRE FACE.

This HAND-BOOK TO ITALY, forming one of BRADSHAW's series of

Guides, embraces the whole extent of the Italian Peninsula, according

to the territorial divisions now established.

It offers to the Traveller or Resident, in one moderately sized

volume, a complete description of every place and locality of any importance with a particular account of all the Galleries, Works of Art, Buildings, Sights, Natural Scenery, and other objects of interest ; and, throughout, it is adapted, as usual, to the latest development of the Railway system. Ample details are given of Modern and Ancient

Rome, as well as of Naples, Florence, Venice, Milan, Turin, Genoa,

Bologna, &c., under their respective heads.

We shall esteem it a favour if those who use the work will have

a

the goodness to forward any corrections or suggestions for improving

it, to 59, Fleet Street, London, or Albert Square, Manchester,
