Overview

From Paris to Perm and beyond: Dream weekends with practical itineraries in all corners of Europe

Culture, history, natural beauty, fine cuisine, artistic masterpieces, cutting-edge architecture and style—Europe overflows with so many riches that a lifetime seems too short to appreciate them. But with the right guidance, you can go far in a single weekend. Stylishly written and carefully researched, this updated and expanded collection of the popular New York Times 36 Hours feature offers you 125 well-crafted itineraries for quick but memorable European trips, accompanied by hundreds of color photographs to fire your imagination. Explore the expected: the Renaissance in Florence, surfing in Biarritz, flamenco in Seville. And discover the unexpected: Sicilian mummies dressed in their Sunday best, a dry-land toboggan ride on Madeira, a hotel in Tallinn with a KGB spies’ nest on the penthouse floor. World capitals, ancient nations that once ruled wide domains, tiny countries with big personalities—it’s all Europe, and all fun to read about (whether you actually go or not) in this handsomely designed and illustrated book.

    I really enjoy this book. It is fantastic for armchair travel! S

    I really enjoy this book. It is fantastic for armchair travel! Since I plan on going to college in the UK I have already planned out many weekend excursions across Europe. The itineraries are fantastic, and sure to fit all tastes (there are three different itineraries for London, in fact. One for those with children, one for literary lovers, and one for general London). The photos are gorgeous as well. An absolutely fantastic gift! So whether you are planning on doing on touring Europe, scratching some things off your Europe bucket list, or just looking for a good coffee table book or gift, this is well worth the money. High quality binding, high quality pages and bookmarks-- I can't say enough good things about it.
