Paris Insight Step by Step (book)


See the Sunrise in Montmartre, have Coffee in a Classic Cafe, Cycle up the Canal St-Martin, Relax in the Tuileries and Tour in a Classic Car; take a fresh approach to Paris with this "Step by Step" guide, part of a brand new, stylishly designed series from Insight Guides. Lavishly illustrated in full colour, this book features 20 irresistible self-guided walks and tours, written by a local expert and packed with great insider tips. Whether you are new to the city or a repeat visitor, this guide has something to suit all budgets, tastes, and trip lengths, showing you the smartest way to link Paris's sights and taking you beyond the beaten tourist track. As well as covering Paris's many classic attractions, the routes track lesser-known sights and up-and-coming areas; there are also excursions for those who want to extend their visit outside the city. All the walks and tours come with clear, easy-to-follow full-colour maps and hand-picked places to eat and drink en route. A 'Key Facts' box at the start of each tour highlights the recommended time needed to enjoy it to the full, plus the distance covered and a start and end point; all this makes it simple to find the perfect tour for the time you have to spare. The book also recommends top tours by theme and includes a special 'Only in' feature, highlighting a number of experiences or attractions that are unique to the destination. In addition, it has background information on food, drink and shopping, plus a Directory section with a clearly organised A-Z list of practical information and hotel and restaurant listings to suit all budgets. The guide also comes with a metro map and a free pull-out map, complete with street index and with the walks and tours clearly marked. This map is great for use both with and without the main book.
