Simply the Best!,
This review is from: Lonely Planet Paris (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
I've been very loyal to Lonely Planet travel guides for trips I've taken all over Europe and Asia. Their recommendations are always spot-on. The downside was always that they weren't as lavishly illustrated as some of the other guides on the market. With this new 2013 edition, Lonely Planet has gone COLOR. Pictures and maps liven up the guide. And I'm very happy they've brought back their extensive maps at the back of the book (missing from the 2011 edition!). If you're really looking for the best Paris guide, Lonely Planet is it. Great background information, great tips on how to get the most out of your time there, and some excellent walking tour maps to inspire a day in a new neighborhood. Furthermore, I do enjoy how Lonely Planet always includes some information specific to LGBT travelers. Now my partner and I know where to go for a drink when we're there! Do yourself a favor and take this with you!
