Overview

City Guide Paris is a full-color travel guide to one of the world’s favorite cities, offering both inspiration for planning a trip and detailed practical information for use on the ground once you arrive. The book is packed with images of the many different facets of the city that create a vivid portrait of contemporary life. The many features on culture and history give you a real understanding of the city and its people, covering topics such as architecture, café life, Paris at the Movies, Paris After Dark, and the cabaret scene, and there are colorful features on iconic sights such as the Centre Pompidou, the Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe. Paris has so much to offer that it’s impossible to see everything; we help you prioritize with our Best Of Paris feature highlighting the blockbuster attractions and our Editor’s Choice recommendations for where and when to enjoy the best food and cafes, festivals and shopping. The Places chapters cover every neighborhood, from the ancient Ile de la Cite to the maze of narrow streets around Montmartre and ultra-modern La Defense. Detailed, full-color maps throughout the book help you navigate the city with confidence, and our selective, independent reviews of hotels and restaurants guide you to the best and most authentic establishments.
