Dickens' account of his first visit to America and his letters written during a stay in Italy describe cities from Boston and St Louis to Rome and Naples.

I enjoyed "American Notes" more than "Pictures from Italy" since I happened to be reading this while traveling in some of the same American cities as Dickens as I read, and found it fascinating to make the comparisons. I was greatly bemused by Dickens' repeated discussions of spitting, which were frequent and lengthy.
