I buy one Rough Guide each time I travel to a different city and I absolutely love it! I used to buy American Express and Lonely Planet and I like better Rough Guide. The guide has wonderful descriptions of the sites/cities, timetable and prices for museums, fabulous tips/info and schemes of the main sites with precious notes. It's a fact that doesn't have many photos, but you won't need it! Once you're there you can have your own photos! And if you have doubts about the place, have a look on line! The descriptions and tips will compensate all of that! Also it's a light book compared with American Express

I used this guide mostly for the Eastern and Central Tuscany and you get plenty of information regarding major cities and touristic towns. Smaller and out of the beaten track towns or villages are not presented at all so try to buy at least one more guide if you want to explore the area in deep.

The Rough Guide gives an insightful view of Florence, it's Restuarants, History & places of interest. A great travelling companion!
