Synopses & Reviews
Fodor's See It Florence and Tuscany is perfect for travelers who want to understand Italian history and culture before they arrive, and experience the country like a native Italian while they're there.
Overflowing with brilliant color photography, this is the only illustrated guide that provides the practical information that you need while traveling--complete restaurant and hotel reviews with exact prices for lodging and dining (not ranges), plus time-saving tips and how to avoid crowds, exact admission prices to key sights, great photo stops, and special notes on kid-friendly attractions throughout.
Our detailed reviews represent the best accommodations in destination, in all price ranges. From five-star luxury hotels to low-budget pensiones, we'll tell you what to expect in terms of price and quality through extensive coverage of hotels and their surrounding neighborhoods, exact prices of double-occupancy rooms (including breakfast), plus pictures of hotel facilities and guestrooms.
If you want to experience the best that Florence and Tuscany has to offer, pay particular attention to our outstanding restaurant coverage that will help you choose from the thousands of local eateries that cater to every budget and dining experience. From affordable forno al legno at O O to places where you can splurge on a romantic, candlelit dinner--like Boccadama in Florence--you'll find it in See It Florence and Tuscany. Each review covers house signature dishes, ambiance, actual prices for a two-course lunch and a three-course dinner (for two people), hours of operation, and what transportation will get you there.
Whether you want to shop for jewlery on the Ponte Vecchio, ride a scooter down the via de Tornabuoni, view the ceiling fresco in the Sala di Marte, or picnic on a Tuscan hill, See It Florence and Tuscany will take you there. Accessibly written to help you navigate throughout the country without missing a thing, each attraction includes exact admission prices, what galleries and museums not to miss, and where to stop for quick bites and refreshing drinks along the way. Sights are also rated for their value, walkability, historic and cultural interest, plus we suggest fantastic photo stops and entertaining and age-appropriate kid-friendly attractions throughout the book.
