We bought several of these books before our trip. I read them but my wife didn't, she insisted on a travel agent to book the trip. Once we arrived in Italy the tour group did most of the items already listed within the book. From arriving at the airport and knowing what to look for and how much to expect to pay all the way to the best places to visit and at the best times, this book added a great deal to our vacation. I bought one for Rome, Tuscany, and Venice and referred to them just about every day we were there. Download the podcasts before you leave and you will save literally hundreds in paid tours and tips to tour guides. The tours you pay extra for give you a headset that 100 other people have worn and play back basically the same information you get with this book. BUY THE BOOK THAT APPLIES TO YOUR SPECIFIC AREA FOR YOUR VISIT AND READ IT IN ADVANCE. I can't say enough how valuable these books are.
It's so easy
I purchased this book along with Rick Steves Venice and Rome for a trip I was planning to Italy. I have to admit that we would have been totally lost without having these books. Not only is the books full of useful maps, ticketing information, restaurants and prices, but it also contains suggestions for tours of museums and self walking tours. I used all three of this travel guides when we were in the cities and I read them all in depth before we left. Since we planned out everything before we went and did most of the museum tours on our own I felt like we were well prepared with these books. All of the travel tips alone are excellent and I enjoyed going to some of the restaurants suggested in the books. I can not count all the times we were stopped in different museums in Florence and Venice and asked by different people traveling where we had gotten these books. I will never plan a trip without purchasing a Rick Steves Travel Guide book again.

Great way to plan your trip. Italy is tough on tourists because of odd closing hours. I have been to Florence before, but this time I plan to not have to visit each place twice because it was closed the first time. Rick gives really good self-guided tours of the major museums. For several of them you can download the same tour as an audio version. At the very least you can decide which are tops for you, so you can go to those first before you go into museum overload. Once you've penciled out a schedule do check the Web for the latest information. Closing hours may have changed since publication.

The one thing Rick doesn't do well, and I thank him for it, is recommend small towns to visit. He only covers the major tourist attraction (Siena, Volterra, Cortona...). I thank him because he is too popular and would only succeed in making other places "too touristy". Do get off the track and choose some small town at the top of a hill to visit. Doing so is one of my favorite memories of Italy.

I have the kindle edition to take with me, but I also have an older edition in print. The kindle edition does not have enough links from the contents page, and none from the index, making it harder to look up most things. Get an old edition from your library so you can thumb through and add some bookmarks to your kindle edition.

I used the guide on a recent trip to Florence. I picked the place we stayed based on the recommendation in the guide. Very pleasant accommodations at a reasonable price. Without the guide, I would not have even known that the place existed. We also used the guide for visiting museums and churches with famous works of art. There is practical info, like which are the good places to see, hours and prices, how to avoid the long lines, etc. and enough information on the works themselves so that we saw and appreciated what was important. We did not use the guide for picking places to eat. Mainly we were guided by expediency; i.e., what was convenient when we needed to eat. It was all good. Also for our wine selection, we just ordered the house wine. Again, it was all good. I love Florence and this guide was very helpful in making our trip enjoyable and rewarding.

I would also recommend Rick Steve's Italian phrase book. It contains what you need to know.

Although Rick Steves's Italy book provides much valuable information on Florence, the Florence book adds more detail, especially the specific tours of various sightseeing destinations. Also, the book provides black and white photos of the highlights of the destinations that are being featured. This is another very useful travel book from Rick and it has been vital in the planning of my 2012 trip to Italy.

We spent several weeks in Italy and found many helpful hints in this book. Besides the Tuscany and Florence area, much of the information held true for other parts of the country. Everything from VAT information to ATMs, and suggestions about pre-trip details were helpful. Suggestions like confirming your ATM withdrawal limits, explaining DCC, what to do if you lose an ATM card while out of the country. It also has some Italy drive/rail pass information. All the little odds and ends we might not otherwise think of. A good book to take along. Ours had many dog-eared pages by the end of the trip.

I don't know if there is a better travel author out in the market...but I would be surprised if they were superior than Rick Steves. He has maps, itineraries, and other guides to the city. When touring museums, he tells you about the famous works there and why they are worth admiring so you know what you're seeing. Great books...i've bought numerous guides from him.
