Now in its fifteenth edition, The Rough Guide to Paris brings the perfect mix of fresh research and expert knowledge to Europe's most enchanting city. Each neighbourhood is explored in depth, with all the sights - from the must-sees to the more offbeat - covered by Rough Guides' experienced authors. The surrounding region features too in the "Day-trips from Paris" chapter, and the whole lot is illustrated with beautiful photography throughout the guide. Full-colour maps ensure you'll find your way from sight to sight (or from bar to bar) with the minimum of fuss. Combine this with accurate practical information on everything from public transport to opening hours and museum passes, and you'll soon be browsing the Marais, gliding on a boat along the Seine and sampling the best bistrots like a true Parisian.
The best of the Paris' cafés, restaurants and nightlife - from the high-end and exclusive to edgier new hotspots - are reviewed in Rough Guides' trademark honest and to-the-point style. All accommodation budgets are catered for, too, whether you're after a grande dame city institution or a backpacker-friendly party hostel. Both for weekend breaks and longer stays, The Rough Guide to Paris fits the bill.
