    A fabulous complement to "Top 10 Paris"!

    Great organization, eye-catching photography, well written narrative and superb cartography! DK Eyewitness Travel guides have got it all but, for me, it's the photography that really separates them from the competition. And "Paris" covers it all - restaurants, music, beer bars, walks, art galleries, museums, spas, architecture, palaces, hotels, cafés, theatres and churches. And all of the information is organized by neighbourhood in the city so I can make the most effective use of my time once I'm in a certain area. <BR/><BR/>Here's my "best practices" strategy. Read "Top 10 Paris" first. Make some basic choices, get your mind wrapped around Paris geography and begin to localize your choices to certain areas. Fine tune your choice and plan your attack day by day by reading "Paris". Familiarize yourself with some of the local customs by reading the basic country information in the back of the larger "Paris" guide - currency, communications, etiquette, food, beer and wine, local transportation and specialized hints like local tipping practices. <BR/><BR/>Why not five stars? Frankly, with the internet now providing so much current information, I can't see the value in attempting to include lengthy (and probably outdated) lists of hotels and restaurants in densely packed small print index lists at the back of a book like this. <BR/><BR/>As a pre-planner, "Paris" proved itself to be invaluable. My limited time was well spent and I felt comfortable filling my day with a thoroughly enjoyable selection of attractions that were well matched to my personal tastes and those of my traveling companion. There was not even a single instance where we felt we were misled by the guide into choosing an event, a food, a pub, a hotel, a church, an attraction, a park or a café that was not to our liking. And it was the ideal size to be easily carried around during our travels to keep handy as a pocket reference. High praise, indeed. <BR/><BR/>Even with the help of such an invaluable, compact and realistic guide, Paris is simply too big, too diverse and too fascinating to tour in a single week. That said (and well you might ask), my personal Top 10 in Paris from the perspective of a first time visitor were as follows: <BR/><BR/>Panthéon <BR/>Musée d'Orsay <BR/>Notre-Dame <BR/>Arc de Triomphe <BR/>Musée Carnavalet <BR/>Chateau Versailles <BR/>Parc Monceau <BR/>The Left Bank <BR/>Opéra National de Paris Garnier <BR/>Au Trappiste (an outrageously expensive beer bar) <BR/>Jardin du Luxembourg <BR/><BR/>(So sue me ... I can't count and I couldn't hold back choosing one extra favourite destination). The point REALLY is, I had most of these picked out before I ever got to Paris and the descriptions were SO good that my advance choices proved to be quite correct during the reality of the city visit. I don't think I could give higher praise to a tour book than that. Highly recommended for all travelers, real world and armchair alike. <BR/><BR/>Paul Weiss

    This is the greatest.

    Despite its size, this is still the best guide series around. I see more and more people with this book when I travel. It's got guided walks, off the beaten track ideas, detailed pictures and descriptions of every monument and area you can imagine, etc. The maps are a bit difficult as i would like to have a large city map available, but the maps by area are great for finding your way around specific areas. The transportation information is also very good.
    Get over its size and get this book.

    Helpfully visual

    One of the great assets of the Eyewitness Travel Guides is how visual they are. The guide makes it easy to recognize the sights that the traveller has chosen to visit. I would also especially commend the street maps at the back of the guide for locating everything from sites to restaurants.

    The best book to use when traveling

    This is the best book to use when traveling to Paris. I carried this book with me where ever I went during my trip to Paris. It is easy to follow and gives you a lot of information on all the best sites to see. Also, it is compact enough to place in a small back pack. I would not go to Paris with out this book! It is so good I recently gifted it to a friend.
