Amazon Review

It is said that you haven't lived until you've died in Paris. For most of us there is no need to go quite that far, irresistible as the city's grim history may be. After a bad harvest in 1788, during which food prices soared far beyond the means of the average citizen, the populous rose against the monarchy, marking the start of the revolution that would turn Paris into the cosmopolitan city it is today. Looking further back in time, Paris's eerie past can be found in its Catacombs, ancient Roman quarries lined with 18th- and 19th-century skulls. But Paris is also the city of culture: it is home to more than 10,000 restaurants, bistros and cafés. Some couples even set up their own intimate tables on the Pont des Arts, a pedestrian-only bridge over the river Seine.

Whether or not you have visited Paris before, the AA's Spiral Guide to Paris is a sound travelling companion. Though small enough to fit in a rucksack pocket, it manages to squeeze in 200 fact-filled pages, including glossy fold-out maps, a 28-page "magazine", chapters on the Eiffel Tower, the Latin Quarter and St-Germain, and a vital "practicalities" section, featuring weather information, safety hints and brief language guide. --Daren King

I had already purchased the spiral guide to New York and found this really useful on my trip to the Big apple! So when I decided to take a trip to Paris I looked no where else but for this AA spiral guide of Paris. It is extremely practical with an excellent quirky magazine section on paris. A section for each area, what to see, pictures of the sights, ratings of each sight etc. A really useful section with recommended walks, so you do not miss the sights, with approximate walking times, places of interest and even cafes to have a break in. It also includes a city map and area map and a really useful facts section at the back of the book. Overall this is a colouful, informative, easy to read book with all the information you would need for a fun-filled trip to Paris, prepared with all the facts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never travel without a Spiral 31 July 2008
We have decided that from now on we're only going to visit places that have a Sprial Guide written about them - they have become indispensible to us over the past few years - Barcelona, Venice, Florence and now Paris. There's just the right mix of travellers' tips, interesting facts about the place, good up-to-date information re opening times, prices etc. The maps are suberb (though why does the street we're on always land on a join?!). And the best thing of all is the SPIRAL!! - No losing your place when the book shuts itself, no broken spines, no need for a bookmark - Genius!!

5.0 out of 5 stars the best travel guides for the not-fussy 26 July 2007
By M. Nair
we used the spiral guide for our paris trip and found it the most user friendly. it neatly divides the city and four or five areas, each of which can be covered in a day or less, with easy to follow walking tours and great quality photos. it does not go too in-depth like the lonely planet or time out guides but that suited us fine.we will only be using the spiral guides for our next city-breaks. AA's onto a winner here.

3.0 out of 5 stars paris guide book 27 Jun 2010
The guide is good, but the street map and underground schematic were a little difficult to read across and between pages. We used the metro map that came free with our tickets and cross-referenced the street map in the guide to find our way to the stations.
