Review:

If you're in Paris, you have to visit the Louvre--likewise the Vatican in Rome or the Prado in Madrid. But unless you're an art historian or an aspiring artist, you probably don't need to see every objet d'art housed in the great museums of Europe. In Mona Winks, travel writer extraordinaire Rick Steves offers quick and irreverent guided tours of 20 top European museums. Steves's approach to great art is the surgical strike: get in, see what's worth seeing, and get out while you can still tell the difference between a Goya and a Degas--and still care! The book includes maps of the museums, a suggested viewing itinerary, and perceptive, often hilarious descriptions of the art and artists you'll encounter there, plus general information about art history. Art snobs will no doubt be offended by Steves's breezy style and his admittedly idiosyncratic choice of works to feature, but for those travelers who don't know much about art and would like to learn more, Mona Winks is a painless introduction to the classics.
