MichelleY - Thank you, I hadn't thought of that, you could be right. Glad you enjoyed the report.

donco - Thanks for reading! We can't wait to see Rome. We also hope to see Sicily during our next trip. Who knows when that will be, though!

Happy travels!

I booked train tickets from the US and it was a disaster. I would say to buy them at your first stop in Italy. They are much cheaper and easier!

I have to agree with you. We didn't want to book them from home, but it would have been wise for us to book them at least a day or two in advance. I think we were enjoying our trip so much that we didn't think of this little precaution.

Thanks for reading!

Mr. Green,
thanks so much for your great report --i've printed it out to help me with my trip to Milan and Florence. I'm going to order "Florence in Detail" but wondered if this book had a little section on essential practical info (buses, phones, local dishes, etc.) -- or is it solely about the cultural history of the city? I was hoping to avoid buying two books but it may be unavoidable... I like that "Florence in Detail" sounds like it has good walking tour information.

I'm glad you enjoyed the report and found it useful!

This is the only book you'll need in Florence. It has sections for food, hotels and attractions. The major features, as you said, are the walking tours.

I have to admit that we never used the food part of the guide for any place that we went in Italy. (Maybe we should have???) So I can't comment on the book's recommendations.

The book is divided into sections of Florence (for example South of the river, Santa Maria Novella area, etc...) Each section has its own map with one page for attractions, and the other for hotels.

It also includes descriptions and sometimes photos of each attraction.
