Review:

Dorling Kindersley's Eyewitness city guides bill themselves as "the guides that show you what others only tell you" and indeed, spectacular illustrations are one of their strongest points. Every page of an Eyewitness guide is filled with beautiful color photographs, maps, drawings and diagrams that bring popular tourist destinations to life. Each guide color-codes the city's districts or neighborhoods, making it easy for readers to know at a glance just where they are in the book--and where they want to go. Eyewitness Paris is typical of the series: a brief history of the city is followed by "Paris at a Glance" featuring the best museums, churches and parks; "Paris Through the Year," a description of the seasons; and "A River View of Paris" which takes the reader on a tour along the Seine. After this introductory section, Eyewitness Paris tackles the city of lights district by district, starting with Ile de la Cite and ending with Montmartre. At the back of the book is a lengthy section called "Travelers Needs" which includes extensive information about restaurants, hotels, shopping venues entertainment opportunities and special activities for children. The "Survival Guide" gives practical information about getting into and out of Paris, banking and postal services, safety, transportation, and more.

One of the best things about the Eyewitness series are the guided walks for each city. In Paris you have a choice of five 90-minute walks: around Parc Monceau, along the Canal St.-Martin, around the Ile St-Louis, in Auteuil or in Montmartre--the directions for each are clear, the sites well worth seeing, and each provides you with the best possible way of getting to know the city. Don't be deceived by Eyewitness Paris's picture-heavy format--this little picture book packs a lot of information! Don't leave home without it.
