Format: Paperback
I thoroughly recommend this guide; the lists and information about star sights and features enabled us to get the most out of our short trip to Paris. The hotel and restaurants listed that we used were all excellent, although some with a modest two Euro symbol were still relatively expensive.The illustrated and annotated walks for each area were invaluable, very easy to follow and informative. The longer 90m walks described towards the end of the guide were harder to follow, consequently we missed some interesting items. The guide wasn't up to date for some of the closures / opening times, eg le grand magasin Collett and the illuminated fountains of the Jardins de Trocadero. The vocabulary list was helpful. The book itself is too large to fit easily into a handbag, however a smaller version may omit some of the very useful detail; and in some cases I would have appreciated even more detail eg information about precise location of famous people buried in Montmartre Cemetry and exact location of some of the more significant stained glass windows in the Sainte Chapelle. The pull out map, including metro system, is accurate, clear and laminated so that after 4 days of constant use it still looks like new.

I love DK travel guides, they are very comprehensive, well layed out, coulorful, interesting to read, educational and informative. Some of these benefits may be a disadvantage for other people ie. being comprehensive means the book is heavy with many pages. With so much intresting info you may get side tracked and end up reading rather than looking for or enjoying the scenery, which is ok if you happen to be in the Jardin Des Plantes! I was dissapointed with the phrases/dictionary section at the end- was too short for a book with so many pages. If you are after a concise, lightweight travel guide- this ONE is not for you, but you should get it anyway for bedtime reading!

I bought this guide as I intend to visit Paris next year and wanted to find out a little more about the arttractions and places of interest in Paris we well as where the stations and railway stations were located. This book has been very useful and helpful if assisting me in identifying a hotel location in proximity to the places I'll be hoping to visit as well as giving some very interesting facts about Paris. I find Eyewitness Guides a real help when visiing a new place.DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Paris

I always buy the DK Eyewitness Guides when travelling as they are fantastic!! The Paris Version was no exception. We went to Paris for just 4 days, but having this guide allowed us to make the most of our time. The Metro Map and Street Maps were particularly useful as was the handy translator at the back of the book. Would Recommend to anyone
