I have spent considerable time in Florence and my daughter spent her junior year at the University of Florence. This is hands down the best guidebook to the city. The book is small enough to be easliy carried. It divides Florence into its different neighborhoods together with excellent maps. Its selection of historical sites, stores and restaurants is impeccable. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847825353, Paperback)

Florence is one of Italy's most extraordinary cities. Rich with the world's most important art and architecture, and with shopping that rivals most larger cities, Florence is the second-most popular destination in Italy. The newest in Rizzoli's Italian cities guidebook series created in collaboration with the International Herald Tribune, Florence in Detail provides the seasoned traveler information on well-known cultural and commercial points of interest, as well as off-the-beaten-path treasures to let one experience the city as natives do. Through seventeen walking tours and in-depth Focus sections, Florence in Detail takes the traveler to familiar sites, but offers alternative itineraries as well as introducing the reader to lesser-known sites that are extraordinary. Within each itinerary, Rizzoli has singled out one site that is particularly important or noteworthy. Identified with a red sticker, the reader can easily find Rizzoli's favorite site in every chapter. Six itineraries to small towns just outside Florence are described, including Fiesole and Impruneta. A "Best of" chapter, identifies Florence's best pastry shops, best markets, and other venues of interest to the traveler.
