A neat tour guide which takes the reader through several walks with each one showcasing a number of local Florentine businesses and eateries. Also provides a brief window into Florence's approach to business regarding hours of operation. Highly practical.

Every restaurant, cafe and gelato shop we have tried from the recommendations here has been perfect! I guess we are more interested in the eating than shopping, but this book has led us to delicious destinations close to the museum of the day. Grazi!

Easy to follow with excellent choices

I live in Italy and come to Florence often. A friend and I recently spent 2 days following this guidebook and shopping to our hearts content.We found the descriptions in the book accurate and the maps very easy to follow. I loved it.

If you're thinking about a trip to Florence, download this gem of a book. This is a delightful guide to little shops and eateries that won't be in guidebooks. Including maps for walking tours each covering just a few blocks, but drawing you to small boutiques and tiny restaurants. Each store has a photo of its specialties. Beautifully presented, and mouthwatering. Remember, you can't spend all your time looking at all that art.
