Description


The perfect combination of commerce and class, Italy's two most beautiful cities are perfectly presented in the 8th edition of ACCESS Florence & Venice. With traditions in art, history, culture and romance, both Florence and Venice have long been favorite Italian destinations for travelers everywhere – and why not, since the cities themselves amply display visual evidence of the power, prestige and prominence that is their heritage. Including extensive coverage of the warm Tuscan countryside and including some of the very best establishments to be found in Italy, this is every visitor – and local's – indispensable guide to two glorious cities.
