Blue Guide Tuscany Paperback / softback
by Alta Macadam
Blue Guides: Complete Cultural Guides -- Tuscany, with Florence its capital and a host of gorgeous medieval cities set in a rolling countryside of fields, vineyards and olive groves, is the cradle of the Renaissance and for many visitors the cultural heart of Italy.
This in-depth cultural guide amply covers Florence (itself the subject of a whole Blue Guide) but also gives extensive coverage to the other major Tuscan cities - Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Cortona, Arezzo - not covered in such detail elsewhere in a Blue Guide.
This is the first time this title has been produced in full-colour in the well-received new Blue Guides re-edited, re-presented look.
Ideal for the Florence-based visitor making day-trips to the surroundings, or for a tour of the whole of Tuscany.
Includes Blue Guides Recommended short lists of hotels and restaurants.
Illustrations to inform rather than to decorate: maps, diagrams, floor plans, architectural details and photographs -- "Often plagiarised by other guide writers, Blue Guides have always been a gold standard for accuracy and depth" Daily Telegraph. "Guide books in the grand tradition of thoroughness and objectivity" Georgia Review.
