Publisher's Summary

If you decide to make your next great getaway to Florence, Italy, you need this book. There is a high probability you may contract Stendhal Syndrome, "a condition in which a person becomes lightheaded or dizzy because he or she has seen a lot of beautiful artwork in rapid succession".

A French author by the name of Stendhal visited Florence in 1817 and became dizzy and faint upon seeing all the incredible works of art throughout the city. The condition is also known as Florence syndrome, and if you are lucky enough to journey to the home of the Renaissance you might catch it, too.

Florence is a magical city that attracts millions of visitors from around the globe. To make the most of your visit, listen to this book so you will be prepared to experience everything Florence has to offer.

Packed inside this handy guide are tips on what to bring that you may not realize you'll need, like toilet paper. There is a dress code that should be adhered to when visiting Florence: no flip-flops allowed.

Did you know tipping is not allowed in Florence, and handling the fruits and vegetables at the local markets is frowned upon? To live like the locals do, wear the proper attire and be respectful of their customs. You will experience a vacation like no other!

Hearing this handy travel guide will make your journey to Florence the trip of a lifetime.

Short and generic

Much of the book is just general travel tips, not specific to florence. What remains is a very very basic overview of Florence. Roughly the depth of a high school book report. Wouldn't really recommend this.

Meh

It was fine. Just nothing illuminating - if you're already doing research on travel. It hits your most basic questions. You can find this info for free on the Internet. For a couple bucks- it isn't a bad deal. Just was overall "meh".
