Between 1972 and 1983, I had the good fortune of visiting Paris four different times. Alas! Not once since then. So, I must confess that I often buy these tourist guides to renew my acquaintance--from afar--with the City of Lights. Personally, I have found Paris to be one of the most enchanting places that ever I have visited.

Frommer's is a dependable publisher of such guides. And this one surely does not disappoint. The first part of the book whets one's appetite, by summarizing some of the exp
Admittedly, I used the 2007 version. Even though we were in Paris May-June 2010, I had been to Paris in Jauary 2007 and kept the guidebook. Despite outdated pricing (which after three years is only to be expected), nearly everything else was spot on. For our 4 weeks in Paris, this guide was the only one we considered essential. It has excellent street and metro guides, excellent history and info on sites/neighborhoods/historical influences/sites to see. Still - in 4 weeks, we weren't able to see ...more
I read this to get ready for a brief trip to Paris. It is well organized for such a purpose, with suggestions of the most rewarding activities and destinations for short stays. The hotel, restaurant and shopping guides are actually very good for those of us on an ordinary professional's holiday budget. Students and millionaires will want a different book. The pull-out map is an excellent tool for studying the city's layout beforehand. The metro map is adequate for some purposes, but lacks full r ...more
I found the maps in this book not very practical as there are separate maps for accommodations, attractions and restaurants. It would be better if these maps were combined. Also, the map of the subway system is incomplete.
Another thing I found missing: the Musée des Arts et Métiers, the oldest museum of Science and Technology in Europe and one of the most fascinating museums in Paris, is not even mentioned.
During my 11-day stay in Paris I ended up using mostly the Lonely Planet city guide, which
I've tried lots of different guidebook series, but I always end up going back to Frommer's. Lonely Planet is a little more offbeat, but they don't include the same quality of information to help you actually plan in the listings. And Frommer's seems to be the only guidebook publisher that's really jumped on the Kindle, so Frommer's it is!
This book was a very helpful guide while in the city of lights. Much better than the Time Out 2009 I picked up. I didn't use it for any of the hotels, but the restaurant information, plus all the info on sights and getting around was greatly appreciated. You do not disappoint Frommers!
We used this as our only guidebook on our trip to Paris and it was excellent! Great advice and the maps - especially of the metro - were so helpful. We chose 2 restaurants it recommended and they were truly unforgettable. Excellent resource!!

their discussion of the many Arrondissment was very helpful to me to determine which area we wanted to stay at. also a great discussion on the differences between staying in the East Bank or the West Bank.
I have always been a big fan of Frommers'. They are super organized, easy to read and they do a great job of cross-referencing.

This is a well-organized and well-informed guide of Paris. I suggest getting the latest copy before planning a trip to Paris.
Useful to read before the trip, but I wouldn't take it with me.
