While we recommend and support good book shops as the obvious place to buy a Blue Guide, we also provide functionality from these pages to order copies for immediate delivery from Amazon. One of the advantages of this for us is that we can see the excellent rankings and feedback from readers that our titles receive, in itself rewarding for our authors, editors and production team, who put an enormous amount of work into publishing “the best-researched, best presented guide books in the English language”. Here are some recent comments.
Blue Guide Florence
Fully on Florence and More
As always, the Blue Guide on Florence holds up to the series’ high standards. The guide begins with a historical sketch including an in depth history of the Renaissance. Unsure of who is whom in the Medici family? This Florence Blue Guide provides a complete family tree! There are maps, diagrams, photos, a glossary and detailed index as well as suggestions for lodging and dining. Much welcome information is provided on each famous sight including special tips on ticket purchases. For example, there is both a telephone number and OFFICIAL on-line booking service for the Uffizi Gallery. The guide warns that other booking services should be avoided due to their extra fees. That sure is a helpful tip!
