Starting at one end of each of fourteen lines and going to the other Mme. Rue provides a maps of the areas surrounding the station with the locations places of interest in that particular area including helpful information and advice. It is easier to use if you have the map that is recommended to accompany the book because the map of the Metro is only a schematic representation of lines and stations and not their physical locations. Before I read this book, I was convinced I had perfected my itinerary. Was I wrong! I found dozens of things I want to include and my only problem now is fitting them all into an eight-day stay. Of course, that is why we return again, and again.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to see more than the "high points" that the travel industry tells us are all we need to see. Instead you will find many wonderful neighborhoods where you can explore and make discoveries on your own and memories that will last a lifetime.
One complaint. . .the light grey type can be a real challenge visually. Reprint with black type next time, please.
