Florence (Knopf Mapguides). Published November 14, 2006 by Knopf.

I spent six weeks in Florence recently and used this pocket-sized guide every day. The fold-out district maps, which have only two folds, allow for a much larger scale than most other maps (certainly than single sheet maps, which are only useful until you get sick of constantly unfolding them and then trying to work out how to fold them up again). I found the Knopf maps extremely accurate. However, their weak point is that the districts have been selected without regard to the positions of points of intersection between the maps, so that (unlike a conventional street directory) you cannot just walk from one map into another without first working out just how the streets connect, which can be difficult in the dark, or when it's raining and you don't have the luxury of time to carefully work it out. The problem is made worse by the fact that the book becomes unwieldy if you have two different maps unfolded at the same time. Another slight annoyance is that the areas covered do not extend far enough out of the Centre for you to walk to all the sights - although 90% are covered. For example, the important Last Supper at San Salvi, about 30 minutes walk out of town into the suburbs, is off-map, and you need to get a smaller-scale single sheet map from somewhere else to find it. Likewise, if you are walking along the river via the Parco Calcine to see the "Indian" - a monument to a young rajah who died in Florence in the nineteenth century- you quickly walk out of the book's range. However, I do recommend the guide, as it is superior to all other offerings - it just could be better!

Knopf Guides have become my "go-to" guides whenever and wherever I travel. Each of the half dozen fold out map sections is dedicated to a particular area of the city and highlights restaurants, bars, coffee houses, shopping, entertainment AND museums in that neighborhood. The guide describes each area of the city (touristy, working class, high-fashion, etc) so you really get an understanding of your surroundings. Sure, "top-10 guides" are great for the big picture of a city, but when you're starving after walking around all day at museums, nothing beats opening up the Knopf Guide and finding an amazing bistro only a few blocks away.

I have used both the Rome and Paris map books and found them to be fabulous!! Easy to carry, easy to read and compact so you don't have to fold those miserable city maps. It breaks down the map by neighbourhood and specifies some of the things to see. We use it mainly for the map. Throw away those hotel maps!! Loved them so much that I bought a 2nd Rome, 2 additional copies of Paris for friends, Venice, Florence, Barcelona & London. Highly recommend them.

Used this map extensively while in Florence a few weeks ago and it was very easy to use and very helpful.

I used this map nearly every day for six weeks, several times a day, and it held up extremely well. It fit perfectly in my small purse or trench coat pocket. It took a little getting used to the fold out format but once I did, I really appreciated that it is divided into neighborhoods. It is easy to read, the major museums are marked and it contains recommendations for eating and shopping. Glad I ordered it.

So helpful and the perfect size for travel! Ww bought lots of Italian travel books before our once in a lifetime trip to Italy and this is the series of books that we used every day. I HIGHLY recommend.

Small, compact, sturdy pages that won't tear easily with lots of unfolding. Lots of info on every page. My husband, also known as "the plan man" was overjoyed when this arrived. Now he knows the streets like a native and we haven't even started our trip yet!
A detailed and great map for travelling. Pop out maps provide overviews by city areas. I used it all of the time -- not heavy and easy to carry. The Florence, Paris, and Venice versions were equally as useful.
