From the sensuous sound of water lapping against the walls of Venice's ancient palazzi to the intoxicating fragrance of citrus blossoms in Sicily, Italy is a country made for lovers. In 10 distinct chapters, Monica Larner-who has divided her life between Italy and America since childhood-guides the reader through Italy's most inspiring destinations, including romantic locales, exclusive hotels, and tantalizing restaurants. Each region has its own unique amorous legends, love rituals, and aphrodisiac recipes that inspire and seduce. Beautifully illustrated with dozens of luscious color photographs that evoke the magic and fantasy of a romantic trip far away, the book includes complete information on getting married abroad, and will prove an invaluable and enjoyable resource to any true romantic.

Publishing behemoth Random House is the largest English language publisher in the world, with books of all kinds including the best in fiction, nonfiction and children’s literature. Random House first made international news by successfully defending in court the U.S. publication of James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, setting a major legal precedent for freedom of speech. Beginning in the 1930s, the company moved into publishing for children, and over the years has become a leader in the field. Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the highly successful American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by the equally successful unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language. It continues to publish numerous reference works, including the Random House Webster's College Dictionary.
