Book Description

28 Mar 2012
The Paris Metro has 16 lines, 300 stations, runs for 214 kilometres, transports 4 million travellers per day. For the first time this guidebook reveals this wonderful network and its treasures. For each metro station there is a map of the neighbourhood, the history of the station and the origins of its name. There is also a selection of addresses, cultural sites to visit, monuments to admire, restaurants, bistros, boutiques and unusual tips. The reader can stop at any station and always know what to do and see. It is a wonderful way to discover or re-discover Paris, above and below ground. At the front of the book is a fold-out map of the Metro. A guidebook that everyone who visits Paris needs to have in their pocket!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
WE bought this book for friends for Christmas just before they went on a trip to Paris - they said it was invaluable, really useful and had lots of hints and tips not found in the usual guidebooks - a great buy if you are visiting Paris.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good angle on sightseeing. 9 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you intend to be in Paris for at least a week, and intend to use the metro, then this book can direct your days fairly well. If you prefer to stumble around blindly and hope you do not miss too much, then the book will stay in your pocket. It is useful before you go if you spare it the time. It is an attractive book to handle, good size and flexible plastic cover. It opens nicely, and is well illustrated. It also has a decent map!

It was a very good idea but the reproduction of the text was poor. The information under the heading of 'Sightseeing' in each area appeared to have been poorly photocopied from an existing publication and then added to the article. This greatly spoilt the photographs and the printing of the 'History' of the station which was worth reading
I wrote to them at the e-mail address supplied in the book - unfortunately my capability of writing in French was not good enough for what I wished to say so I wrote in English. I eventually received an e-mail in French (copied here)

4.0 out of 5 stars Alternative sightseeing 19 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Pleased with this book so far, though haven't had a chance to use, in practice. I really enjoy seeing 'alternative' parts of cities. Once you have seen the main (famous) sights, it's good to make up other trips. This type of guide layout offers a more straightforward, methodical approach to travelling in the city, based on facts and items of interest gleaned from the book. Format would be great for all cities.
