    Very good pocket sized reference book of various shops and eateries in Florence It’s divided into eight separate walks among the different neighborhoods of Florence Interesting recommendations including inexpensive to moderately priced cafes osterias and restaurants; as well as shops that I wouldn’t have thought to investigate such as a hardware store It includes two indices by speciality as well as by name and some practical information at the beginning of the book I’m definitely going to make room for this little book on my travels

    A great tiny little book of places to eat and shop in Florence like a local Only one problem if you visit Florence in August at least half of these places will be closed I guess that's what you get when you go local But I'd definitely take this little tome back with me to Florence another time The recommendations go beyond the trendy

    A gorgeous guide to many of the city's hidden charms including shops with treasures you don't need to buy to enjoy and that say so much about the city's style and culture The book is full of humor and fascinating facts and stories The photos are gorgeous and the book is small enough to fit in a coat pocket
