Pretty informative and useful. Cherry-picked for information about Marseilles and Nice, for the most part. Informed me that I should actually be cognizant of Mardi Gras - oops, totally forget that was a big deal that happens in February/March. I will be carefully avoiding Carnaval de Nice, thanks. Gave me a great idea for something to do in Marseilles that I wouldn't have found by myself. Again, the links to websites in the e-book are awesome.

My family and I are long-time travelers around the globe, and have developed definite opinions of travel guides over the years. Along with planning travel over the internet, we've basically settled on two different guides to take with us as we go. The Eyewitness Travel Guides are my preference for advanced planning and reading on a particular destination. The Lonely Planet Guides are perfect for our travels while we are on the road. Lonely Planet fills in many of the details that Eyewitness leav ...more

Very good

This is a good guide for touring France. My only complaint is that you can't find things quickly in the kindle version if you are not 100% sure of the region of France, a town or city is in. An index in the back would remedy that I think.

I got this book specifically for information on the Champagne region of France, and it's by the far the best in that regard of all the other travel guides I picked up. Definitely recommend this one if you're traveling to Champagne.

Omg FRANCE. Can't wait to go back. This book was super helpful, although was seriously lacking in low-cost food options. Eating in France doesn't have to be expensive.

A beat-up old car, a few dollars in the pocket and a sense of adventure. In 1972 that’s all Tony and Maureen Wheeler needed for the trip of a lifetime – across Europe and Asia overland to Australia. It took several months, and at the end – broke but inspired – they sat at their kitchen table writing and stapling together their first travel guide, Across Asia on the Cheap. Within a week th
“Markets in Provence No region is such a market-must. Be it fresh fish by the port in seafaring Marseille, early summer's strings of pink garlic, Cavaillon melons and cherries all summer long or wintertime's earthy 'black diamond' truffles, Provence thrives on a bounty of local produce – piled high each morning at the market. Every town and village has one, but those in Aix-en-Provence and Antibes are particularly atmospheric. Take your own bag to stock up on dried herbs, green and black olives marinated a dozen different ways, courgette flowers and tangy olive oils.” 0 likes
