This book provides information about so many cities, I traveled in 18 countries and only once didn't find the city I was looking for. In addition, the book has city maps of all of the major cities and provides accommodation information for EVERY city, which includes phone numbers, websites and addresses. I would look in this book for food recommendations, sights to see and what to do at night. It has very detailed information about the main cities and more detailed about the other cities than the other book I brought, Europe by Eurail 2008. That book was also helpful, but did not include accommodation options for any cities that were not the "base" city. So, if you want to know how much to tip and where to stay as you travel around Europe as you please, I would highly recommend this book. It is also small and easy to carry around.
