    Florencewalks Audio Guide proves to listeners that much of Florence's art is found not only in her world famous museums but on her streets as well. Florencewalks takes visitors on four intimate walking tours, revealing the treasures that can only be fully appreciated by those on foot. The neighborhoods include Dante's Florence; The Streets of the Renaissance Princes; Markets, Bazaars, and Antiques; and the Artisans' Quarter.

    Overall

    For this audio to be beneficial, two improvements must be made. 1) the author refers countless times to the map (not provided and should be), marked with points of interest and directions and 2) the audio should be broken into [tracks] of famous sites so that you can locate what you are seeing. Neither one is provided. The directions are impossible to follow without the map (which they provide to their cassette buyers) and it is one large file with no markers and no way of finding the point of interest that you want to visit. Terribly disappointing and useless.

    It contains very basic information with little imagination. The rationale she gives for many of the issues behind clutter are oversimplified. Disappointing.

    "Fascinating Through and Through"
    Overall

    Fantastic story. Wonderful contrast between the two main characters. Rich character development. Interesting from the standpoint that a lot of people who were and were to become famous were woven throughout. So many fascinating stories within one book. Hard to put down.
