Correct: the Florence coverage is not as good as the Rome secrets book. Still, more fundamentally interesting than other guides. Food choices are reliable.

While this is interesting at a certain level, it is a disappointment after the more comprehensive and inviting CITY SECRETS ROME, and especially after consulting the extremely detailed SECRET VENICE (which will have you hopping into every alley in that wonderful city.) If you are going to have time in Venice, take the latter and put on your Sherlock Holmes hat. As for Florence - my goodness - is this all they could find to tell us about? Trust Rick Steves first....

A small, easy to carry guide book rich in details many tourists might miss. A perfect little guide book for Venice.

After having been impressed by the Secert History of Rome, I was very disappointed in the Secret History of Florence & Venice. The Venice portion was good, but the Florence portion was just simply too sparse to provide much inspiration or guideance.

...and better to read and reference when you are there. Although a bit thin on the content, what was mentioned was good content. I am glad I had this prior to and during my trip.
