Italy brought a fresh angle to its perennial attractions in 2000, with its nationwide Jubilee celebrations. The rejuvenation of its villages, towns, museums, and monuments to accommodate and entertain millions of extra travelers has revitalized the tourist industry and reopened to visitors sites that have been closed for years. After the tragic earthquakes in Umbria, things are getting back to normal again and restoration work is complete in many places. Cadogan's "traveler's bible" has been thoroughly revised and updated for its 5th edition, and reveals new contenders for the country's main tourist draws--Lazio, the historic heart of Italy; the civilized Marches; the majestic wilderness of Abruzzo and Molise; Emilia Romagna with its food, opera, and art--fast growing in popularity as alternatives to Italy's traditional vacation mainstays such as Tuscany, Lombardy, and the Amalfi Coast.
