Overview

Map your own adventure. France Day by Day is the perfect answer for travelers who want to know the best places to visit and the best way to see France.

  • Packed with more than 75 detailed full-color maps and more than 750 full-color photos
  • More than 75 regional and city itineraries that will help you maximize your time while touring the country's top sights. Tour the fabulous scenery of the Côte d'Azur; hike the Rhone Alps; wine taste your way through the vineyards of Burgundy; explore the ancient sites in Arles and cave paintings of Lascaux; or eat your way through Lyon, Paris, Bordeaux, and other foodie meccas.
  • Our authors, longtime Paris residents, hit all the highlights—from the Louvre, to the Loire Valley chateaux, to the lavender fields of Provence. They've checked out all of the country's best hotels and restaurants in person, and offer authoritative, candid reviews that will help you find the choices that suit your tastes and budget.
  • You'll also get coverage of shopping and nightlife in the major cities; a full chapter on France's rich history and culture, information on special-interest tours, and advice on planning a successful vacation in France.
  • The cultural "Spotlight" sections take a closer look at the most compelling aspects of French culture and include cheese, wine, revolution, Napoleon at home, and lifestyles of the rich and famous Renaissance Kings behind all those chateaux.
  • Frommer's France Day by Day also includes a color fold-out map.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"COMPREHENSIVE is a word that could have been invented for this Frommer's guide to France with 125 maps and 105 self-guided tours in more than 700 pages.
Packed with information, but never dense due to the superb photographs, maps and information boxes, the guide gives day-by-day itineraries to get the best out of a stay: whether long or short.
Chapters cover the main areas with sections on Favorite Moments, Budget France, how to do each area in up to a week, spotlights on special features and what to see for history, outdoors or art buffs.
There is also a section on special-interest trips which cover topics like flying, photography and outdoor crafts.
However, crazily it has an over-ambitious France in One Week itinerary covering just Paris, Versailles, Chartres, Blois, Tours and La Rochelle – which certainly fills a week but is by no means "France in a week".
The guide does, however, recognise this, saying one week is barely time to see Paris alone.
Surprisingly, it states that French hotels are graded on a five star system but omits to mention the Palace grade which was created last year as the ultimate accolade.
For a catch-all guide to France this is magnificent." (The Connexion, 2 March 2012)
