A practical guide to the two cities that witnessed the flowering of the Renaissance and also to the towns of San Giminiano and Fiesole. Every building and site of interest - churches, galleries, the dwellings of princes, saints and scoundrels - is identified and illustrated. The entries are accompanied by captions spiced with anecdotes. There is a general section giving background details on the history of both cities and on Tuscan cookery and wine, plus a selection of hotels and restaurants. Finally there is a calendar of events and advice on what to do in an emergency.
