Completely updated and personally researched by savvy travel writer Haas Mroue, Frommer’s Paris from $90 a Day is your key to discovering the real heart of the City of Light. We’ll take you to street markets, affordable cafes, bistros, and unusual museums. We’ll also recommend dozens of hotel bargains that make this otherwise high-priced city affordable. A sightseeing chapter is supplemented with an additional chapter of detailed walking tours. You’ll even get a handy glossary of French phrases and a color foldout map, along with a color map of the Metro!
