Overview

Frommer's is the name you can trust for great travel bargains. Our acclaimed $-a-Day series is not for backpackers who want to rough it, but for travelers with taste, who've outgrown their student lifestyle and demand comfortable accommodations and good, authentic meals at a reasonable price. Each guide is loaded with detailed listings for mom-and-pop motels, B&Bs, comfortable guesthouses, good-value bistros, and ethnic restaurants. You'll find a bargain-hunter's shopping guide, affordable fun after dark, and complete sightseeing coverage, including the best things to do for free (or almost). Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go--they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money.

Every Frommer's $-a-Day Guide is up-to-date, with dozens of color maps and exact prices for every single expense, so you can accurately plan each day's budget. Frommer's knows that affordable travel doesn't have to mean making sacrifices. It's about having fun and getting a great deal!

Completely updated every year (unlike most of the competition), and personally researched by a local journalist, Frommer's Paris from $80 a Day is your key to discovering the real heart of the City of Light. We'll take you to street markets, affordable cafes, neighborhood bistros, and the best excursion areas. We'll also recommend dozens of hotel bargains that make this otherwise high-priced city affordable for anyone. A complete sightseeing guide is supplemented with an entire chapter of detailed walking tours, plus special experiences that only a local would know. You'll even get a handy glossary of French phrases and a free color fold-out map!
