There's interesting and fun things,day and night,a week's worth or a quick trip in/out. You don't even need a car. (And, mom and dad, the kids won't even know they are absorbing history, without the textbooks and the teachers.) Best yet, for those of us who are lucky to live here, we can just hand visitors a metro map and this book and let them enjoy themselves!
This book is great for residents as well as visitors. I refer to it all the time!
