This review is from: Streetwise Florence Map - Laminated City Center Street Map of Florence, Italy - Folding pocket size travel map (Map)I've used the Streetwise maps in many cities of the world. They're compact, waterproof, and generally useful.
I've tried this one, but the Streetwise format just doesn't seem to work for Florence, which is made up of about five districts and where many of the sights (and there are a great many) are on side streets.
A better guide for Florence is the Knopf Citymap for Florence. It has a separate fold-out page for each district and excellent recommendations for shopping and restaurants for each one, yet is still sturdy and compact.
I recently purchased Knopf's map for Barcelona and was equally pleased. In the future, I'll check first to see if they have a map for cities I visit, and only buy a Streetwise map as a second choice./

I'm impressed that you replied to my critique. As I said in the review, this is the sole Streetwise map that I've thought is inadequate. Frankly, I don't know exactly what I would do to make it better; the city is laid out rather oddly.
