For those who simply can’t get enough of the United States or Italy, Experience USA and Experience Italy, two new titles from Lonely Planet, will introduce readers to the personality and soul of American and Italian culture.

Built around themes like food & drink, art & culture, landscapes & wildlife, history and more; these photo-rich hardbacks are packed with the most iconic, authentic sights and activities – perfect for introducing seasoned travellers and armchair readers to something new or previously undiscovered.


Each title covers over 90 experiences stretching across each country, with multiple ways to navigate the books either thematically, geographically or by interest. Set off to discover Coastal Life in Southern Italy’s Polignano & Monopoli, or learn the secrets behind the famous Texas Barbecue in the USA’s Southwest.

Experience USA and Experience Italy will take you on a page-by-page scavenger hunt for delicious produce at country markets, one-of-a-kind festivals, intriguing historical figures and quirky museums, all weaved in with an authentic taste of the American and Italian experience.
