Here's what a few of our readers had to say about Florence & Tuscany with Kids: "This book is a must-have if you are taking your kids to the Tuscany region! It was invaluable and made our trip a great experience. We traveled with a 3 & 5 year old and the tips and activities inside were great. The restaurant recommendations proved to be helpful and delicious." Allison Neumann "Better than your normal travel guide. I love the additional information provided.... And now I have a much better understanding of Renaissance art!" W.Mason "Very good guide for Florence and the surrounding areas if you have kids. The major attractions had some kid based projects, these were fun to complete. Also, the facts based for kids were useful in keeping our child focused. We really liked the area/attraction gelato based information." C. Frears "This travel guide is detailed, thorough and full of useful information. As other reviewers have pointed out, its forte isn't an abundance of colorful photos and maps (on the contrary, it is printed in b/w), but the information it provides. The detailed itineraries (especially the Maremma and the Florence itineraries, which we followed) were very interesting and enjoyable. The reviews of Florence's best family friendly attractions and the recommendations for parks and medieval festivities were great. In fact, we found several suggestions and activity ideas here that we did not see in any other guide we consulted. All in all, this is a highly recommended resource for families traveling to Tuscany" Roi "Excellent book, tried and tested with 3 kids aged 10-11. We took a regular guide book too but always found ourselves checking this one because it had relevant info for famiilies, like: which place sells the best gelato? Good local panini bars, cafes, child friendly restaurants?..." DC "Well organized and very useful. If you are travelling to Florence or Tuscany with your kids, this guide is a must". Mat D.
