    1. It s light but covers all the major destinations from the grand tour It succeeds in linking the pioneers of British Town Planning and Architecture with their Renaissance, Baroque and Classical sources of inspiration I look forward to the TV show.


    2. Heady mix of architecture and history all new to me Makes one want to book a ticket to Italy Will look at buildings with new perspective.


    3. A light overview of what is explained in the series I have enjoyed the series very much, this book not quite as much.
