PREFACE.

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, as usual, it is adapted throughout 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. (including the latest antiquarian discoveries), 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,
