4.0 out of 5 stars A handy little guide 10 Aug 2010
We spent July 2010 in Florence. We bought DK's much bigger "Florence & Tuscany" guide to plan the trip, but we were travelling light and found it a bit big to take along. Instead we used this colourful pocket guide.

Essentially, what you get is a dramatically cut-down version of the bigger guide, covering mainly the city of Florence, plus Oltrarno, and day trips in Tuscany. It has a three-panel cover, which folds out so you can use the maps at the back at the same time as using the rest of the book. The book itself divides the city into four colour-coded areas, each of which features highlights for the tourist. The items are numbered and cross-referenced on additional little maps within the book. It all works well - we had no real difficulties with it, except when finding the correct map when cross-referencing.

The content is inevitably touristy. It focuses on what a holidaymaker is most likely to want to see/do during a vacation there. It therefore features all the tourist-traps. However, as with its bigger brother, it also finds space for plenty of other points of interest that will take you away to some of the less busy places in Florence.

If you are visiting Florence, there is enough in this guide to keep you busy for a fortnight. As with many of DK's guides, the restaurant recommendations are not really worth bothering with, as there are so many to choose from. Otherwise, it's a very nice pocket-sized thing to have with you as you walk around Florence.

If you are considering buying this guide, buy it before you leave the UK. The ones on sale in Florence cost a rip-off 7 Euro!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 26 Oct 2011
This book was perfect for what we needed. We are on a cruise and only had one day to spend in the city. The map pointed out the biggest attractions, gave us enough information on everything to decide what we really wanted to see, and helped us to get around the city with ease. I would highly reccomend this book and will purchase others in the collection in the future.
