The guidance on shopping and markets was spot-on, and though we didn't use it so much for eating and drinking it was again reliable when we did (except in the case of a trattoria in Fiesole where we learned the word for 'rip-off' is 'bidonata'!).
The short sections (with street maps) on excursions to Siena and
Fiesole proved to be perfectly adequate for day-trips, without the need to buy another guide.
The only slight criticisms are that the street plans of Florence are inevitably small, although they are handy to use. The one irritant with them, however, was the lack of a street index or a map of bus routes. Apart from that, which doesn't warrant docking it a star, this comes highly recommended following actual use on the ground.
