5.0 out of 5 stars "A Well-Planned Travel Guide.....To An Adventure!", April 30, 2011
This review is from: Paris (Eyewitness Travel Guides) (Paperback)
If I would have seen this book a year ago, I would have noticed the great advantage to such a wealth of information "all in one place". The fact that it weighs less than a pound is an advantage all by itself. Over the past year, I have searched the internet on every topic related to Paris, and I have lots of pages printed out. Now, I see the advantage to taking this book along, as it contains information for each of the geographic neighborhoods in Paris, including the Metro stops nearby, eight guided walks, significant details about the various museums; the sectional maps are easy enough to read and follow the path to wherever I am going.

The METRO, the underground subway is the most efficient way of getting around so large a city. Having been there before, I have a good handle on transferring from one subway line to another; using the METRO map of color coded lines will guide anyone through the lower levels of this city.

DK is one of my favorite publishers; the photography, the specific maps and directions for getting from one point to another are all here; there are all kinds of cutaways and illustrations in dimensional form to point out the various details of the building, the garden, or the museum. Now, the question is, will there be enough time to rest from following this wonderful guide to a city such as Paris.

When I typed in the title of this book in Amazon's browser, a wealth of information followed: there were anywhere from 26 to 96 other guides on cities and countries of the world, all published by DK, revised over the last four years. Certainly, the historical and geographic information are enough for any armchair traveler, on the move, or just for reading, in a rocking chair".

This is the kind of book you read through on the flight there, in one's hotel room, but never standing on the corner in a major city; you would be asking for trouble displaying your vulnerability with so many opportunistic people moving about. Here's to a fun-filled, and guided time away! "Happy Travelling!"
