Free audio tours - First trip to Italy on Sept 10-20

Hi!! I am heading in a couple of days to Milano and when reaing Fodor's Essential Italy I read that there is a website where you can download MP3 audio tours for free. Now I cannot seem to find the page where the website is listed.

Does anyone know of good audio tours to download?

Thanks!

Try this site for free Milano podcasts.

I haven't used this particular one, but I used several for various cities on a recent trip and it really fleshed out what I was seeing. I used a Zen Mosaic with an external speaker so my husband and I could listen at the same time without being tied to earphones.

Rick Steves has a link for downloads on his website. If you have an Ipod you can get them from Itunes. There are also some free ones on this website:

A Fodorite has created a website with some free downloads.

Thank you both for your insights!! I own an iPod, so subscribing to the podcast in iTunes was a great idea!

noambit.com has some really inexpensive tours for several places in Europe and if I remember right has one called essential Florence too. They were running a discount code awhile back on their facebook group. You might ask if it's still good.
