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. The Blue Guide to Tuscany includes: A strong focus on art, history, architecture and, where relevant, archaeology Illustrations to inform rather than to decorate: maps, diagrams, floor plans, architectural details, photographs Improved access to information and navigability with cross-referencing, excellent indexing, maps, floor plans and intelligent layout Selective listings of restaurants and accommodation informed by the belief that good practical recommendations will contribute to the visitor's enjoyment About Blue Guides: Blue Guides have been published continuously since 1918 and have always represented the best-researched, best-presented and most comprehensive cultural guide books in the English language. Related Blue Guides Titles: Italy is a particular specialism for Blue Guides. Titles include Central Italy, Southern Italy, Sicily, Rome, Florence and Venice, as well as our Italy Food Companion - an essential food and drink reference source and useful Italian phrasebook. Our Concise guides to Rome and Italy offer more complete and distilled overviews. Other travel companions are also available including our travel monographs: Pilgrim's Rome and The Venice Lido and a literary companion to Rome. "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
