I bought this ahead of a trip to Tuscany, it's well written and flows fluently and relatively easily. I'm glad I bought it because there is so much history to discover in Tuscany I was able to bring order and understanding to my sightseeing. It helped me organise what I wanted to see whilst I was there.
A great book.....just what I expected and need in preparation for my Tuscan holiday. However it took a month to reach me which was a disappointment. ( I think the expected delivery date changed twice.)
