Travel media company Lonely Planet has released two new titles Experience USA and Experience Italy to introduce readers to the personality and soul of American and Italian culture.

Built around themes like food and drink, art and culture, landscapes and wildlife, history and more, these photo-rich hardbacks are packed with the most iconic, authentic sights and activities – perfect for introducing seasoned travelers and armchair readers to something new or previously undiscovered. Each title covers more than 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 and 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 a true taste of the American and Italian experience.
