The review is of the physical edition. Travel information is evolving at light speed, and, but Fodor's makes a real effort to keep up,with both the books and their website. The books are updated regularly using comments from real travelers, not paid reviewers, which is a real plus. I made a long trip to France in 2013, used this book for general planning, background information, and to a lesser extent to find hotels. It does a very good job at what it does. I am planning another trip and am ...more

A traveler's guide to France

Fodor's guides are a kind of standard for travelers, since it contains destination detail, with their own ratings of tourist's spots, motels & restaurants, shops, and other attractions. Although Michelin and AAA also have their own ratings for tourists spots, I like the Fodor's a little better since it has greater detail and nicer pictures.

This is a travel guide to France -- it probably doesn't need much more introduction than that. Having used it on our recent trip to France (April-May 2013), I learned the following about the book:

- The "Essentials" at the end of the book really are essential, so be sure to read those before you go!
- Whole regions of the country are missing, so make sure you have a good sense of your travel route/destination before you select this book.
- Many of the operating hours listed for specific sites were

Another Fodor's travel book. And a good one! The focus here is France. The book is almost 900 pages long, so a detailed review would make little sense.

The book begins with background information. Then, region by region coverage, including places to eat, places to stay, attractions, the arts, nightlife, and so on. Regions covered include: Paris, Ile-de-France, the Loire Valley, Normandy, Brittany, Champagne Country, Alsace-Lorrane, Burgundy, Lyon and the Alps, Provence, and so on.
