Specializing in writing walking tours of Europe's cultural sights, Gene has co-authored eight of Rick's books and contributes to Rick's public television series.

    This book had lots of ideas for things to see and do. Alot of it had to do with bike riding, which wasn't helpful for me, but would be to others. It is difficult to use this kind of book on the nook, as you can't dog ear pages - or easily use it while touring.

    Good Info, but Nook is Not a Good Format

    As usual, Rick Steves' information is good, but the non-color Nook is not a good format, as the maps are illegible. In addition, it's difficult to go back and find information due to the limited # of bookmarks allowed and the inability to label a bookmark. Also, not all information is hyperlinked, such as the Index which also didn't provide page numbers.

    I thought this would be a great way to carry the book with me, but will opt for the paper version in the future.
