recommended Tuscany travel guide

Here's what a few of our readers had to say:

I have read several travel guides in preparation for my trip. Most are rather utilitarian. This book was head and shoulders above the rest. The author provides opinions on everything from roof top cafes, world renown architecture,antiques shopping,vineyards and more in an in depth fashion unlike the "standard bearer " in this category. You feel as if your are sipping an espresso talking about her favorite neighborhood spots. This is in a league of its own. You don't want the same old travel babble---you want a perspective from an outlook you can appreciate. 


Delightful! What more could hedonist want? We were part of a group of friends re ting a villa and we insulted every day. It never let us down.

Hope B.
