  • Ammy_Evaluator - Great tour guide in a book!

    On a recent trip to Italy, I relied exclusively on this book for our stay in Florence, and I was not let down.

    The amount of detail on key sites is excellent - whether it is the Accademia, the Barghello, or the Uffizi.

    The information provided was also key in helping us determine which sites we wanted to visit. For instance, the Duomo museum was not on our initial list, but after learning of Ghiberti's doors and Michelangelo's Pieta, we could not miss it.

    Some information from the book was not quite up to date:

    1. The Terraces tour was not available when we visited. In fact the Duomo Museum notified us that our information from the book was incorrect. In the end, this caused us to lose an hour waiting in line to climb the dome.

    2. The Firenze Card has increased in price to 72 Euros now. Also - though the book does not mention it specifically, you do not need to buy one for kids under 18. The good folk at the museums let our kids through without any fuss or bother.

    3. The Tourist Information kiosk at the SMN train station no longer existed. Use the alternative location across the street at Santa Maria Novella.

    In addition, the Galileo museum chapter was a rare disappointment in an otherwise great book.

    Overall, if you can't be bothered with tour guides or travel agents, you really could benefit from this book.

    Happy Travels!

    Other general tips:

    Buy train tickets from the trenitalia web site. I downloaded their emailed PDF receipt and e-ticket to my cell phone, and simply handed my phone to the ticket collector when on the train. There is a significant discount if tickets are bought well in advance (1st class/business fares for the price of a 2nd class ticket.)

    Our itinerary for 5 days in Florence was:
    Day1: Day trip to Pisa, Piazzale Michelangelo in the evening
    Day2: Day trip to Venezia
    Day3: Barghello in the morning, Uffizi in the afternoon, and Palazzo Vecchio in the evening
    Day4: Medici chapels and Accademia in the morning, Galileo Museum in the afternoon, and the Palazzo Pitti in the evening
    Day5: Duomo museum, Santa Maria del Fiore, and Giotto's Campanile (reserve this for a Monday as most other sites are closed on that day)

    We stayed at the centrally located and spacious Hotel Alba Palace (better rooms than staff) which came with breakfast included.

  • "" - VIVID

    I am reading Diana G's books in order, thanks to this board. Claire and Jamie's story is outstanding. In this issue, she returns to the 1750's when she discovers Jamie is still alive there. The changes they have both been thru for the past 20 years are realistic and heart-wrenching. Every description is vivid and you feel tremendously throughout the whole book. Claire is now a doctor which comes in very handy for everyone. The humor and love between these two is so wonderful to read. They get into so much trouble you CANNOT put the book down until you see them safely out of it! :) I cannot believe how fast I read the first 3 and now will begin the fourth. I wish I could have my paychecks sent directly to my home instead of disturbing my reading flow! Enjoy!

  • Samson Abraha "Samson" - Amazon has delivered to the best of their ability

    I work for Apple and play with iPad 2s on a regular basis. To put it simply: they have made me detest the very concept of tablets. I played with this tablet for 30 minutes and fell in love. It was the perfect Christmas gift for myself for all the hours I've been putting in but to my surprise, all those hours came to bite me in the arse. I get home one day and read news of preorders available. Product pages with active order options suddenly disappear from nearly every online retailer.

    Well not all. I found one after much scavenging of the internets and preordered a 32 GB model on the 26th of November, only to discover TODAY that the retailer's stock would not come in until January 8th.

    So thank you, Amazon, for lowering the expectation of shipment date and preventing any further orders when the supply did not meet the demand. Customers who expected a timely shipment of their units received $10 gift card codes and were given an adjusted shipment date while others who were of the first fortunate batch have already received their Primes. I know now to never second guess my natural tendency to want to order items from Amazon.

    But really, Amazon, 4 weeks? I know you can do better than THAT.
