    Great

    This book was recommended by our tour agency. It is the first time I have used this series, and I was pleased. It is illustrated in color, well organized, and informative. I am sure I will use it often for sights as well as restaurants.

    Excellent series. We've taken several trips using the DK Eyewit

    Excellent series. We've taken several trips using the DK Eyewitness guides, including to France, and are able to travel knowledgeably as a result. You'll know where to go, how to get there, what to expect, and what you're looking at once you're there. THE guidebook to pack in your luggage abroad..
