Last week we featured guidebooks on Bali, and it was a big hit. After multiple readers asked me for my recommendations for guidebooks to get for Paris and London, I decided to work on them (since they’re the most popular European destinations for American travelers). This week, we’ll feature Paris and France guidebooks, and next week we’ll do London. Paris is also one of my favorite cities in the world and it’s my wife’s favorite.
Having a good guidebook really helps, especially if you’ve never been to a city or if it’s been a while. If I’m missing any of your favorite Paris/France guidebooks let me know and I will add them.
