I admit to being a fan of the Eyewitness Guides, this one no exception. Compact, concise and packed with useful information, it's a great introduction to this beautiful, green area of France and encourages you to want to find out more.
(Page 33 mentions the 'Cidre' Route..Brilliant..THAT is highly recommended and although I'm not a Cider drinker..this stuff is wonderful!) There are lots of pics and..oh, this little book has a nice 'feel' to it!! Pop it in your pocket and away you go!!

We were on a 3 day whistle stop tour of the D-Day beaches on our way back from holiday in the Vendee. This was a really useful little guide. Nice size for me to carry around, enough information for us to know where to go to make the most of a short time - because there is so much to see around there you could easily run out of time and miss the 'best bits'.

Easy to use, punchy, to the point, and helped me to find some very good things that suited our time and tastes.

It helped me find a few bits that weren't about the war too - but close to where we were.

The fold out map came in handy more than once as well.

I would recommend this book as a good general guide but don't use it exclusively - there are some lovely things to enjoy and see in Normandy that aren't 'Top Ten'.

We took this book to Normandy with us and we thought it was excellent. It tells you all you want to know and isn't a pain to carry around! Well worth the money.

Format: Paperback
This book is almost useless. It breaks the various attractions down into top ten lists. It then does not include an address or tagged map for many of the attractions so while you might be fascinated that Pegasus Bridge is one of the Top Ten D Day attractions you'll have to buy another map or guidebook to actually find it. Instead you get a basic map reference, say B3, which gives you the general location of the attraction. Luckily a grid square is only 20 by 20 kilometres so you won't be driving round aimlessly looking for a signpost.

Avoid this book.

We bought both this and the Michelin Normandy guide. The Michelin green book may contain a lot more details, but if pictures are worth a thousand words each, then this Eyewitness guide more than makes up for the slim volume with pictures of just about every of their recommendations.

Was also delighted to realise there is not just one top-10 list, but this book talks about top-10 cathedrals, top-10 gardens, top-10 historic sites, et cetera - very useful when we needed specific thematic recommendations for our itinerary.

This is my third Eyewitness Travel guide, but only my first Top 10 guide. I found this guide a great help in planning my trip to Normandy. The guide highlights the best sights all over Normandy with top 10 descriptions of Mont-St-Michel, D-Day sights and museums, the Abbey of Jumieges, Notre-Dame Cathedral in Rouen, the Bayeux Tapestry, sights in Bayeux, Honfleur, Rouen, Caen, Deauville and La Cote Fleurie, Pays D'Auge region, and Giverny (Monet's residence). The guide also has top 10 descriptions of specific subjects including Norman abbeys, museums, areas of natural beauty, parks and gardens, forests, culinary highlights, gourmet restaurants, markets, spas and resorts, unspoiled villages, artist and writers in Normandy, arts and crafts, activities for children, outdoor activities, and festivals and events. Then the guide provides top 10 descriptions by regions with several grouping in each region. For instance in Northeastern Normandy, they have top 10 areas in the region followed by top 10 sections on best of the rest, chateaux, places to shop, and places to eat. The subjects for the top 10 sections for each region vary. There is also a Streetsmart section that covers top 10 subjects including getting to Normandy, getting around Normandy, sources of information, things to avoid, eating and drinking tips, shopping tips, Normandy on a budget, banking and communications, security and health, and several sections on different types of hotels and camping accommodations. As with all the other Eyewitness Travel guides, there are helpful maps on the cover folds with gridlines for locating sights. In addition the pictures are excellent and definitely helpful in making planning decisions.

I actually got an older version of the guide used for cheap through Amazon.

I bought this little book to go to Normandy (obviously!) based on other reviewers' comments and it was a great choice!

The book is divided into categories so information is easy to find, such as Towns/Cities, Forests, Arts & Crafts, Unspoilt Villages, Spas & Resorts, Markets, Culinary Highlights, Activities for Children, etc etc. and also divided into areas, such as Northwest Normandy, Northeast Normandy, Southwest Normandy and Southeast Normandy. The back of the book gives information (some of which is well worth noting) for you to have a safe and enjoyable holiday. Inside the back cover is a rather handy little pull-out map which gives key routes in and out of major places, such as Caen, Rouen etc. Just worth a mention is the fact that it also lists the Top 10 Things to Avoid which can end up saving you time and your well-earnt spending money!

Each section highlights the top 10 places to visit/see/eat at followed by the rest worth noting.

It's easy to navigate your way around this little book and it spent SO much more time in my hands than it ever did in the inside of my handbag! I highly recommend it.
