Adequate ne I have at least a hundred books about Paris, including many travel guides. There are 20 and they spiral out from the center of the city. I haven't been to Paris for 5 years and I just wanted to have one of those nicely illustrated guides to pique my interest not that I really needed a nudge. The drawings and photos scattered throughout help me make the most of limited time. At the beginning of each section there is a small map of Paris at the bottom of the page highlighting where it is in relation to the other areas and then over the page a more detailed map of the sites in that area with snippets of info. Очень незначительные повреждения обложки, в том числе потертости, но без проколов или надрывов. This amount is subject to change until you make payment.
I recently had some issues with one dedicated to a different country. Минимальные следы износа на переплете. Since it heavily relies on pictures rather than words, it's easy to pick up a guide, thumb through it, and let a striking photo serve as inspiration for where to go or what to do. The best series for planning what you're going to do and see on a trip. Then is an overview of Paris and its history.
These sections show why a printed book can offer more than the internet in travel planning - the reader here can get a very good idea of where things are and what is available in each area, instead of scattershot offerings from foreign websites. I have at least a hundred books about Paris, including many travel guides. This is the one we take with us when we travel - the rest get left at home. I just love these Eyewitness guides, they are so colourful and vibrant. One of the things I really liked about this book is the timeline that starts at the beginning of the book with Paris's major historical events, until it ends at the end of the book with events from the present.
And Paris covers it all - restaurants, music, beer bars, walks, art galleries, museums, spas, architecture, palaces, hotels, cafés, theatres and churches. The photographs, maps, and detailed labeled drawings of major sites, make this book a visual treat. You will have to cross-reference to another map by description if you want to use the system that all Parisians and other guidebooks use. Frankly, with the internet now providing so much current information, I can't see the value in attempting to include lengthy and probably outdated lists of hotels and restaurants in densely packed small print index lists at the back of a book like this. However, if you want to get a quick sense of what a destination has to offer, an hour or so spent with one of these guides is probably one of the most effective ways to do background research. It didn't provide us with anything special.
The book is split into really easy to follow sections - basically the diffrerent quarters i. . In fact, the book only refers to arrondissements three times that I could find, and those only briefly. The Latin Quarter, Le Marais, Monmartre, The Opera Quarter etc. A better ratio of information to weight can be found in Rough Guides, but they have fewer pictures. Книга в твердом переплете может не быть обернута в суперобложку.
That said and well you might ask , my personal Top 10 in Paris from the perspective of a first time visitor were as follows: Panthéon Musée d'Orsay Notre-Dame Arc de Triomphe Musée Carnavalet Chateau Versailles Parc Monceau The Left Bank Opéra National de Paris Garnier Au Trappiste an outrageously expensive beer bar Jardin du Luxembourg So sue me. I highly recommend this book - perfect for planning and drooling over. Paul Weiss Likes: lots of pictures, both well-known and lesser known sites detailed, good visual organization, very detailed highlights of destinations, good practical information about the basics of traveling in Paris like currency, transportation, and food. The rear of the book is devoted to practicalities such as transportation, hotels, restaurants, and entertainment. Then is an overview of Paris and its history.
Real-life Paris is arranged by arrondissements, or distr Likes: lots of pictures, both well-known and lesser known sites detailed, good visual organization, very detailed highlights of destinations, good practical information about the basics of traveling in Paris like currency, transportation, and food. I used this one as an all in one guide for a three week tour through France. The best over all travel books are the eyewitness travel guides. We even had to buy guides from the museum itself. A place with such rich history deserves something better.
