Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...Point-by-point walks ... offer structure ... while the 'best' sections ... make choosing a place to eat ... far easier ... original and insightful..." (PR Week, March 2006)

"...does an excellent job of filleting down the key sights - and provides useful maps... represents excellent value." (Mail on Sunday, February 2006)

"...perfect for travellers on a long weekend ... offers a range of smart ways to see each city..." (Scottish Daily Record, March 2006)

"...each one is full of useful information to help you make the most of your visit...don't go away without them!" (For The Bride, April 2006)

"...Frommer's produce travel guides for every kind of traveller, from students travelling on a tight budget to the luxurious round-the-world traveller..." (Uptown Magazine, April 2006)

"…this pocket-sized tome is in fact a rather welcome addition to the genre. Where so many guides fail by being hopelessly difficult to navigate, weighed down by extraneous background material and drably produced, this is bright, breezy and easy to use. It is colour-coded throughout, split up into logical sections and intelligently laid out with a detachable map. For those on a weekend break looking for a compact guide to the city this is among the very best available." (Italian, April 2006)
