••• The Foodies Guide to Florence •••
Florence is one of the world’s favorite cities. Filled with paintings, sculpture and Renaissance palaces it’s one of the wonders of Western civilization. While you’d be hard put to walk down one of the cobblestoned alleyways without running into a masterpiece (or a great leather store), finding a great meal is another story. Tourist town means tourist traps. But with Elizabeth Minchilli’s Eat Florence in your pocket you’ll be sure that every morsel of food you put in your mouth is the best.

What's New in Version 1.1.0
Lots of new content and software improvements!
Great at the start, but...update!
It's a great app: concept and content. But there's been no attempt to improve the app's map - the central area of Florence is practically unusable (can't see or read streets) for locating places recommended in the app. This despite requests from users and assurance it was being 'worked on'...
Also no updates, in content or functions, for almost a year...
The developer may have moved on to other things.....
