These books are pure hybrids. A travel guide, but not. A cocktail table tome, but more. I have the Europe and the USA volumes. I never go anywhere now without checking this source first. I am actually disappointed if my destination is not covered! These entries take you to great places off the beaten path. Detailed for travel, but interesting for just sitting on your couch perusing. The pictures are wonderful. Sure, you can't take it on the plane, but each entry is only a couple of pages long; isn't that why God made copiers and scanners? If you travle or just want to, this book gets you ready and gets you there. I am not going to stop until I get the whole set! I keep it updated by checking the NYT Sunday Travel section. They go back and review some of these places again, and are always adding new spots too.

We have long collected the "36 Hours" pages from the travel section of The New York Times as useful guides for short stays or weekend trips in Europe and the U.S. It's nice to have them all in one place and we are using several of the articles for an upcoming trip with one night stays in Milan and Verona and longer visits to Bologna and Venice. That said, a few caveats. The book is far too nice to cut up, as I often do with more traditional travel guides, and so thick that copying sections to carry with you is a bit of a chore. Also, as with all printed guide books, the specifics - opening times, restaurant and hotel recommendations can quickly become out-of-date - so best to double check with more current sources. Nevertheless, the book is full of lovely pictures and will long serve as an easy way to remember past trips and spur our interest in future explorations.

Even though it says paperback, the binding is very high quality and sturdy. I also love the place marking ribbons for each section.

My dad loves the 36 hours columns in the New York Times, so I knew he would love this book. It is laid out by region and is interesting even if you never plan to visit any of the destinations. Would also make a good coffee table/conversation book.

I've been to Europe several times, and my brother lives there.

We can agree that this actually a pretty good travel manual with neat things to do. If you read fodors and take its recommendations, you'll hit every tourist trap in every city. Blah.

This actually gives lots of fresh neat travel ideas for stuff that is off the beaten path. Plus, it is well written, good pictures, easy to navigate. Hard not to like it.

I love this series -- 36 Hours in the USA and Canada is its sister copy. The mix of pictures and short descriptions on where to go, what to do and where to stay are ideal for armchair traveling, as well as inspiring for making future trip plans. The art alone is stunning. I find myself poring over the pages, imagining future trips. It's such a great starting point.

Fun book and different to most travel reads- reviews various well and lesser known european destinations outlining great things to do and see in a short stay- saves buying a multitude travel guides and this gives a good overview with just enough info to determine whether a place suits your travel requirements.

Like most Times publications, its both well done but costs more than it should. The small print is
not for the elderly. However, it \s a good browser and a keeper for a reception room or cocktail
table. Not the travel book you'd take with you - you'd be over weight before you packed your
tooth brush
