Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fodors See It France is perfect for travelers who want to understand French history and culture before they arrive, and experience the country like a native while theyre there.

Overflowing with brilliant color photography, this is the ONLY illustrated guide that provides the practical information that you need while traveling–complete restaurant and hotel reviews with exact prices for lodging and dining (not ranges), plus time-saving tips and how to avoid crowds, exact admission prices to key sights, great photo stops, and special notes on “kid-friendly” attractions throughout.

Hotels

Our detailed reviews represent the best accommodations in France, in all price ranges. From five-star luxury hotels to family-run inns (Logis de France hotels), well tell you what to expect in terms of price and quality through extensive coverage of hotels and their surrounding neighborhoods, exact prices of double-occupancy rooms (including breakfast), plus pictures of hotel facilities and guestrooms.

Restaurants

If you want to experience the best that France has to offer, pay particular attention to our outstanding restaurant coverage that will help you choose from the thousands of local eateries that cater to every budget and dining experience. From affordable bistros and brasseries to places where you can splurge on a romantic, candlelit dinner–like Georges in Paris–youll find it in See It France. Each review covers house signature dishes, ambiance, actual prices for a two-course lunch and a three-course dinner (for two people), hours of operation, and what transportation will get you there.

The Sights

Whether you want to spend your day wandering the halls of the Museé d'Orsay in Paris, stroll through the historic town of Dijon, shop 'til you drop in Cannes (Provence's most glamorous destination), or drive through the vineyards of Bordeaux, See It France will take you there. Accessibly written to help you navigate throughout the country without missing a thing, each attraction includes exact admission prices, what galleries and museums not to miss, and where to stop for quick bites and refreshing drinks along the way. Sights are also rated for their “value”, “walkability”, “historic and cultural interest”, plus we suggest fantastic “photo stops” and entertaining and age-appropriate “kid-friendly” attractions throughout the book.

What to Do?

Our shopping walks will lead you to cutting-edge fashions to fit all budgets, from hip streetwear to expensive fashions for your feet. But, France has much more to offer than just sight-seeing and shopping. Fodors see it France provides insider information on classical, theatrical, and cinematic performances, Frances music scene (live jazz to underground youth centres), nightlife, spectator and activity sports, and festivals and events.

Atlas and Maps

Detailed neighborhood maps are incorporated throughout the book to help you navigate on historic walks, shopping tours, or to find a restaurant. Plus, a 16-page atlas details each road and path with highlights of important landmarks, parks, metro stations, and car parking areas.

Fodors See It™

A brand-new series that shows you before you go, guides you while youre there, and makes the perfect keepsake on your return.
