I bought two other guide books to find things that are inspiring and interesting in Provence - Frommer's "Provence & the "Riviera" being a good one. Those books are better than Rick Steve's for giving you an idea about what you might want to do. But RIck Steve's is the best book once you know what you want to do - because he tells you how to do it and whom to contact. He makes getting around without a tour group do-able and much less painful. So get another book for the "poetry" of the trip and Rick Steve's for managing the details.

We have used Rick Steves guides before and are familiar with his format which matches our style to go it on our own. The book is well organized with an emphasis on walking tours. Information on sites is current and his website updates are a nice complimentary asset which helps if you have a guide which is a year or two old. If you want extensive information about hotels and restaurants this guide will not meet your needs.

As always, Rick Steves books provide valuable information for planning your trips, on what to spend your time on, etc...
The only thing that he needs to include is a good road map. He has done so on other books (i.e. 2011 Spain).

I have reviewed multiple travel books on the French Riviera for my upcoming trip, and this is the best one that I've seen. The information provided is much needed basics such as the best way to get to neighboring towns by train, bus, or driving and where to visit based on your interests.
I would highly recommend this book to someone planning to travel to the riviera.

Rick Steves, as always, does a great job. But reader be warned, these types of books are best in print because you are researching different regions/areas and tend to bounce from one section of the book to another. You cannot do this very effectively with an electronic version - it is frustrating at best. I love my reader for magazines and pleasure books, but not for reference type books. I'll take Steves book in hard copy

This book is extremely informative and very down to earth. Gives a great overall view of the area and also focuses on the must see spots. It has been a tremendous help in planning a trip to Provence.

We are big Rick Steves fans, but he often leaves out great chunks of a country if it is not his favorite area. We wanted to go to Marseilles because in 2013 it was selected as a "European Capital of Culture." Rick's regular France book has barely a mention of this great city. The Provence book has a lot of information on Marseilles. It also lists information about smaller towns and places to sleep and eat that are not covered in the France book. If you are going to be in Provence, I would recommend that you purchase this book instead of the general France book.

We are a couple in our mid-30s, traveled to the region 8/13. Had a great experience, the book was very informative, funny and detailed.
I gave it 4 stars because the restaurants recommendations did not include a notice that they will be closed in august. Many restaurants we made a point to visit, were closed in august for holiday, but not all. However, we wasted our time traveling to the location to find the restaurant is closed. Otherwise, all was great.
