Book Description

April 14 1998 Knopf City Guides
These striking new guides to seven major destinations are so appealing that you won't be able to put them down--even after you've stopped traveling. Slender and light, they fit into your purse or pocket. The traveler gets a rich flavor of a city through 600 vibrant color photographs while being guided through the 400 best hotels, restaurants, shops, and cultural sights.

Each guide is divided into nine sections: Everything You Need to Know takes you into a given city and explains local transportation once you are there; Where to Stay lists 80 hotels with a wide range in price; Where to Eat includes everything from diners to four-star restaurants; After Dark shows you the clubs, discos, theaters, and concert halls; What to See guides the traveler from museums to cultural monuments and other places of interest; Further Afield provides 36 excursions just outside the city to historic houses, botanical gardens, zoos, or museums; and Where to Shop features 80 different boutiques, department stores, and markets. At the back are subway and bus routes and 10 double-page spreads of city Maps. Also included is the Business Reference Guide, with information for the business traveler on the city's stock exchange, major banks, business newspapers, television and radio stations, as well as a schedule of conventions.

SOME HIGHLIGHTS
The guide to MILAN shows you the glorious Duomo, the great La Scala, the glass-topped 19th-century Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and fabulous shops.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well-organized, logical, pocketable guide. Oct. 8 1998
Format:Paperback
I travel alot both for business and pleasure. I usually buy four to six guides per trip but the guide that I relied on for my trip to Madrid last month made my trip very, very enjoyable. The new Knopf City Guides are nicely organized and color coded to meet the travelers most sought after needs. Where to stay, eat, shop, see sights, enjoy night life are cross referenced and expertly mapped. Not only do they stick to their view of the highlights but each of the sections make it easy to find other attractions outside the section of interest. For instance, the micro map views in the shopping section also contained numbered,colored references to the after hours and eating sections. I would highly recommend these guides to anyone visiting the cities covered.

2.0 out of 5 stars I DON'T LIKE KNOPF CITY GUIDES Oct. 25 2000
Format:Paperback
Don't confuse the Knopf city guide with the Knopf Guide. The Knopf Guides are quite good. The city guide, of which I have mistakenly bought several, is very short, and devotes at least 80% to where to eat, where to stay, where to shop, where to find night life...20% or less useful info of what to visit if your'e a tourist. And the maps are pretty useless too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much on where to eat and stay Dec 7 2000
Format:Paperback
The maps in this book were nice. 4 or 5 maps of different sections of the city and one nice subway map. BUT, the guide was heavy on where to eat and stay. I just prefer a map and info on the things to do in a city. I usually have my hotel reservation before I arrive.
