The areas outside Tuscany are only covered from page 154 onwards, before that is all Florence is painstaking detail and the actual guidebook section itself finishes on p245 indicating how little there is on anything else. Pisa for example is covered in 5 and a half pages. As we were basing ourselves in Pisa, I was very disappointed in this. There is a map (which bizarrely took me ages to realise was there) detachable inside the back cover. Again, Pisa was covered lightly while Florence had a whole detailed map.
We visited Roselle's Etruscan ruins which get a very scant mention as part of a "Etruscan tour" but aren't indicated on any of the major maps meaning it was more luck than judgement that meant we found them.
A few other hints and tips in the area would have been great. Ultimately this is really a guide book on Florence and 1-2 day trips from Florence which is fine if that's your thing but that wasn't the trip I had planned as I'd been to Florence before. If that's not what you're planning either then it might be better to get a different guide.
With this guide I was slightly disappointed at the Florence/Tuscany split (we went to Florence). I did know from other reviews that it had been written that way, but I actually found slightly less about Florence than other reviews had suggested. Still quite a good guide, but possibly not one of DK's best.
