The Whirlwind Tours section shows you how to see the entire city in a day or a weekend; what sights will interest kids most; plus, a hedonist's tour that's pure pleasure from dawn to midnight and beyond.
The Neighborhoods section of the book presents the city broken down into 15-odd itineraries that lead you on a step-by-step tour to the best sights in each of the city's greatest neighborhoods--from The Islands and the Latin Quarter to the Champs-Elysees and Montmartre.
Travel Essentials provides information on how to get to the city and how to get around, as well as hand-picked hotels and restaurants.
Each itinerary includes the following features:
Distinctly Paris: Explore the city through 2-page features that showcase the quintessential aspects of the city, such as Impressionist Paris, Gothic Architecture, and Royal Paris. Here you'll get intriguing background information to help you understand why this city is one of the world's greatest.
Best of: Specific thematic groupings of sights are described, such as Paris By Night, Cafes & Brasseries, and Flea Markets.
In-depth: These spreads take a deep dive into a major museum or other sight--Notre-Dame, Centre Pompidou, Opera Garnier-- providing step-by-step guidance on what to see and how to plan your visit.
Sidebars throughout give you the low down on shopping, eating, and going out on the town, and offer insider tips and interesting asides.

I fly out to Paris in one week. Have studied the book. It tells me what Metro stops to where I am going. That will be a great help. Also I like knowing what arrondissement I will be in in order to see other things in that district. A very great and helpful book. I feel it will be a life saver while in Paris.

I can't review this book as I never received it. B&N sent an email confirmation indicating my order was shipped, then a day later, sent another email indicating that there was a problem with this item and it was on back-order and would be shipped later. I then received a 3rd email stating that my order was cancelled (not at my request). Now they send me an email wanting me to review a book - that I have since ordered from Amazon! Not impressed, B&N!
