This is the best book to read prior to and after your visits to Florence. After you read the standard travel guides about Florence which tell you where to stay and eat, read this one to tell you what to see and what it means. Her historical essays about each of the neighborhoods of Florence are excellent. Read the first chapter for an overview. Excellent way to re-live your visits to Florence.

Borsook offers a comprehensive overview of the history and culture of the cradle of the Renaissance, and a guide to the many nooks and crannys of old Florence. This book details all the important venues open to the public, plus many that are not. It gives invaluable insight into the context of the city, and site maps to all the important works of art and science.

I read this book before a recent trip to Florence, using it to plan the visit. I left it home, thinking it too heavy to tote along. I won't make that mistake when we return. Forget the guidebooks; Borsook is all you need to enjoy Florence.

Possible the best guide to the Renaissance city ever published.

I found this to be a wonderful guide for an intensive two week visit to Florence. It is a deeply personal and literary description of the city and I recommend it to the armchair traveler as well. Boorsook focuses on her specific interests so I also worked with other more general books (particularly Rolf Wirtz: Art & Architecture Florence). this is a book for the visiter wanting some depth and a degree of passion for the subject.

The book arrived in good condition, as advertised. I recommend this as a basic guide to the city. Borsook delineates several different neighborhoods within Florence's historic core, and provides the historic and artistic highlights for each. I also recommend Ruskin's Mornings in Florence.

Very good
A lot of things began in Renaissance Florence: the way businesses keep their books, the way sovereign states relate to each other, the way people use art to tell stories and create beauty. These things and many more elements of modern society have their origins in this smallish Tuscan city. These impulses were born in the middle of the last millenium - during the century or so when Florence blossomed as the intellectual and artistic supernova of the Italian Renaissance. Today, Florence remains densely packed with the memories of that time. Eve Borsook's "THE COMPANION GUIDE TO FLORENCE" is the key to the city. In addition to all the names, dates, places of history, Borsook skillfully weaves in meaning and context so that you may know who painted what fresco in which church - but why it remains meaningful 500 years down the road. You can go to Florence to shop for many beautiful Italian creations. But with this book, you can gain a clear appreciation about why the names,images and achievements from this amazing city's glorious past still resonate in our lives today.
