Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this guide as an upgrade to my previous copy which was about 15 years old. I use Green guides in conjunction with Rough Guides. This version is smaller and easier to carry when sightseeing but it isn't as well translated as the earlier version and it not as well organised - by area rather than alphabeticaly. I have always enjoyed reading green guides but I found this version frustrating.

I love the Michelin Green Guides, and think that whilst the more recent newcomers, such as Lonely Planet or Rough Guides, have given great competition, I find that the Green Guides have improved just enough to stay ahead. I love them above all for the historic and cultural detail, combined with walking tours of the most important sites, together with useful maps. The newcomers (Rough and LP) are more like having a knowledgeable companion talk you round, including information on social activities (which of course becomes out of date faster), whilst the Green Guides are like having a professional guide lead you round. More facts, less adjectives. I personally like this factual style, and the Provence book is no exception.

The green Michelin guides are a classic reference, but I'm not an unconditional fan. This guide is more than 200-pages long and covers everything you might need to make your visit a success. The coverage looks well planned for those driving around and visiting different places. I must admit I've only used the guide for a small part to the East of Marseille and the odd visit to Aix, Avignon and les Baux, but it was fine for what I was looking for. I would mention that if you plan a visit to a very specific place then it might be better to look for a guide targeted to your exact needs. Having said that I plan to use the guide when visiting Nimes and Arles.

Michelin Green Guides are always good, but particularly for France - as you'd expect!
Had an older version but needed the new guide because information on places to visit, opening times/dates and entrance prices etc, all change over time.
