5.0 out of 5 stars A truly indispensable guide - A must have!, July 21, 2013
This review is from: Lonely Planet France (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
UPDATE: We returned from our trip to France - traveling from Lyon, to Chambéry, Thones, Dijon, Reims, Dole, Annecy, and Paris. This book was everything I hoped it would be. If you're headed to France, Don't leave home without it.

This is a review of the book as we have used it during the planning phase of our trip. I will add more when we return and have actually used it during our visit to France.

Normally you would get a book like this when you plan a trip to (in this case) France. Our trip was pretty much planned for us - at least the primary destinations were - the details were up to us. And details is where this book really SHINES!

This book is beautifully indexed by interest, by region, by city - by almost everything. Add easy-to-find facts and information with excellent maps ad you have an almost perfect travel book.

The first city we will visit is Lyon and the depth of information available is amazing - everything from what to do and see, to available discount cards and complete tour information. NOW - if you're thinking you can find all of this online or on you google maps, go ahead - but you'll be disappointed. There is just no way all of this information can be found on the web in such a concise and easy-to-use format.

Print versus Kindle edition: I would never want to try using this book on an older Kindle - it may be great on a Kindle Fire but I'm using the print edition. This kind of book requires that you jump from section to section and back and forth. If it's not indexed well for an electronic format, it might be a nightmare to use. One concern for the print edition is its size. The book measures 5 x 1.7 x 7.8 inches and won't fit in your back pocket. At 992 pages, it's a hefty book.

More when we return in August 2013.
