The focal point of the Renaissance, Florence is also a bustling modern city, a heady mix of classic and contemporary.

Here are Florence and Tuscany's best accommodations and dining options in every budget, with tips on buying wine and visiting local vineyards. Mini-guides, including street maps, direct visitors through nearby towns like Pisa, Siena, Arezzo, and Lucca. Museums and galleries, along with new building projects such as a high-speed train link and a new exit to the Uffizi, are detailed, along with the unusual satellite town, Firenze Nova, that Florence is building from scratch.

Dissapointment Jan 16, 2007
I went to Italy over the holiday after doing quite a bit of research with 4 or five different types of tour guides. these seemed great for their great history section and great "local" restaurant guides. But i couldn't find any of the streets found in the books. Im not sure if they are out of date or what, but we couldn't use any of the books suggestions. I also rain into another set of travelers from England who found the same problem. Stick to Rough Guides or Rick Steves. Those are at least correct and updated.
