Since 1969 Cicerone has established a reputation as one of the very best publishers of guides to exploring the hills, mountains and countryside of Britain, Europe and the world. Their fantastic little guidebooks, now weatherproofed in plastic, serve walkers the world over. From walks in Majorca, Croatia and the Lakes to the heady heights of Aconcagua and more, Cicerone has gained a deserved reputation for its worthy titles.
Indeed, the definition of Cicerone is 'a guide' and perhaps no other publisher deserves its name better. Whats more, the house is not some money sucking giant on an international scale but an enthusiastic team based in Milnthorpe, just south of Kendal on the edge of England’s Lake District.
Cicerone now produce over 250 guides to walking, trekking, climbing, mountaineering and cycling. If you are in need of fresh vigour or wonder if there's something worth climbing on that next holiday abroad then Cicerone's your next port of call. I have quite a few Cicerone titles and I often revisit them to dig up lost memories. My favourite and most used are perhaps the Scramble books by R. B. Evans.
