    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

    After enjoying Venicewalks, I was very disappointed with this one. Stories were not as interesting and seemed self serving to the author's interests, but I couldn't listen to all of it due to very poor location directions. Without the maps (which are refferred to constantly), I couldn't even find two of the starting locations, and got lost on one of the other walks. I am quite determined and wasted an hour retracing steps and skipping ahead - since it is obvious that some stores present when written no longer exist. The previous reviewers comments hit the mark regarding the need for indexing.

    Don't waste your time with this. It may be worthwhile on tape - with the maps - but not on Audible.

    Venice, with its mesmerizing system of narrow streets, bridges and canals, offers one of the most perfect walking environments in the world. Nearly 100,000 foreigners flock to the city each day, yet most never get beyond the bustling Piazza San Marco. Now, with Venicewalks Audio Guide, you can put on your earphones, keep your eyes on some of the most extraordinary art and architecture in existence, and listen while the history is explained and the scandal is revealed.

    Overall

    We thoroughly enjoyed being guided through the city with this guide. It was created for tapes and thus is not indexed and lacks the maps that should be downloadable, but the excellent spoken instructions and simple start point (all four walks start at the Piazza San Marco - very easy to find) allowed us to follow them easily. I even managed to start one in the middle with a little perserverance.

    It would be much better if indexed and with maps so that one could pick a site and listen about that - skipping places that you don't want. However, the reader is engaging and the stories are interesting. Worth the inexpensive price.
