I didn't read RICK STEVES' FRANCE 2011 cover to cover, but I managed to plan my trip and find everything I needed in order to do it. The websites I checked out (based on the book) were all valid. Rick Steves has such a great way of making even dry entries humorous or thought-provoking. For instance, describing a starving-artist style hotel as "questionably clean" or saying that you could "sleep like a monk (with about the same level of comfort)" at an abbey. Can't wait to see these things he's described in such style.

One caveat, there did seem to be some major cities missing from the book. I'm sure this is because they're not built for his kind of touring. It just seemed a little strange.

Overall, though, c'est magnifique!
