This little guide is a true pocket companion and yet gives all you need for a short break in this most charming of cities. The map is adequate (and there are free tourist maps to be had when you are there), it has a history, suggestions on where to go in different areas, enough photographs to be sure you have identified the correct building, possible excursions and brief but helpful accounts of the buildings, galleries and museums. It passes my Atelier Brancusi test by mentioning this unique small sculpture studio as part of a visit to the Musee National d'Art Modern. The pages of each section have coloured edges and so it is easy to navigate your way around. I would also buy the Paris Map Guide (I have reviewed this) as the street maps there are excellent. And these two together would be perfect.

I handy, cheap, small guide to visiting Paris, some great places to visit described in here, only slight down-fall are the maps inside aren't very good, so we had to get another when we got there, but for everything else works well inside!
