Like any city, Florence has many faces. Barbara Milo Ohrbach’s latest book, Dreaming of Florence, celebrates its chicest side. Beginning with a brief history of the city, Dreaming floats into museums, gardens, excursions, restaurants and more. An interesting selection of photographs by Ovidio Guaita give an elegant format to the Rizzoli publication, which is part insider’s guide to the most stylish Florentine locales, part daydream for all who love the city. ‘Florentine Notes’ highlight unique spots and give helpful travel hints on topics including Travelling with Children, Restaurants Open on Sundays, and Chic Italian Outlet Shopping.
Be sure and check out page 39 where Ohrbach graciously mentions The Florentine, urging visitors to take advantage of the paper for its up-to-date and helpful information.
