    A good overview of the city districts with sightseeing and walking plans including approximate times for itineraries. The itineraries appear to touch on most of the major sights with time built in for browsing or eating which frankly should be included in more guidebooks. I would love to see just how accurate the itineraries are for fast walkers and fast museum browsers though!

    I chose this over other guidebooks because it offers full color with pictures and various maps, though I think I'll buy a more comprehensive guidebook now that I've gotten a sense of the neighborhoods and what they have to offer. This book provides a good overview of what to see in various areas of the city, but it somehow seems incomplete. It's like a giant brochure, which, I suppose, is what all guidebooks are. What's missing: tips about which streets to take from point to point surface conditi I chose this over other guidebooks because it offers full color with pictures and various maps, though I think I'll buy a more comprehensive guidebook now that I've gotten a sense of the neighborhoods and what they have to offer. This book provides a good overview of what to see in various areas of the city, but it somehow seems incomplete. It's like a giant brochure, which, I suppose, is what all guidebooks are. What's missing: tips about which streets to take from point to point surface conditions (cobblestones, concrete, steps, slopes...) weather tips (seasonal advice or warnings) What's helpful: visual representation of landmarks, attractions, and distances days when places are closed photos organization by area many maps

    Not nearly what I would expect from a book about walking the city. No concept of how long it would take or what the streets would be like or how you would navigate your way around. If I felt lost reading this, I can't imagine I'd be able to find my way around in real life. Saving grace: It did give me the idea to visit Sacre Couer at night. Going on the bucket list.

    Very informative book! Read it from cover to cover and helped a great deal in planning our Paris vacation. It is also a great idea to take this book to the trip because it guides you plan your trip to destinations and the best ways to walk through Paris.

    Picked this up for our pending trip and found it informative and helpful by breaking the city up into suggested walks complete with mileage and estimated times. Hit all the high spots and then some. Recommended (not for the challenge)

    National Geographic has written about different neighborhood walks to take in Paris with maps and descriptions of the places along the way.
