Extremely Helpful - Would definitely recommend. (Kindle Version),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lonely Planet Europe (Travel Guide) (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book as I am planning on travelling to europe next year.
It includes a full europe map in great detail, allowing greater planning of which places to visit in which order.
It helped a LOT in terms of budgeting, and the average prices you'd expect to pay for things such as museum entry, a lunch, or a three course dinner.
In particular I would recommend this book simply for the recommendations of things to do. Tourist websites do tend to advertise places that charge an entry fee (perhaps for commission) whereas most of the lonely planet tourist attraction recommendations where either free or extremely cheap, and due to having never travelled around europe, it was a gold mine in terms of planning what sort of things I'd like to see.
The only downside about this book is that as soon as a hostel realises they've featured in a lonely planet guide they tend to put prices up so the cheap hostel sections are a little out of date pricewise.
Would definitely recommend buying the kindle version as there's quite a lot to read and can imagine it being quite bulky to carry around when travelling, and almost all of the features such as maps are available offline.
