Ruth Blackmore, James McConnachie. Full-colour throughout, The Rough Guide to Paris is the ultimate travel guide to one of Europe's most elegant cities. The Observer called his subsequent Rough Guide to Sex "a comprehensive, fearless book, part socio-history and part manual". The writer and feminist Jenny Diski found it "funny and thoughtful"; the book's "clarity and, she reckoned, "would make anyone who has been young and befuddled (or old and befuddled) weep with gratitude.

Rough Guides are written by expert authors who are passionate about both writing and travel. I read most of this guide before going to Paris, marking the things that sounded interesting. They have detailed knowledge of the areas they write about-having either traveled extensively or lived there-and their expertise shines through on every page. It's priceless information, delivered with wit and insight, providing the down-to-earth, honest read that is the hallmark of Rough Guides. Then I went back and figured out which were most important to me. I knew very little about Paris beforehand and this was extremely useful in helping me to find things to do and see.

I was very disappointed in this guide. I usually love the Rough Guides and have used them on many a trip. The main issue I had with this guide book is that the writer/writers frankly didn't seem to like Paris all that much. With so much you can research on the internet these days, the reason I still read and love guide books, is for the inspiration and having travel ideas all in one place. Before I go on a trip I want to read and get excited about all the wonderful places to see. This guide just seemed to barely be interested in many of the sites, and I found the organization of the book irritating. Often times it barely provided enough information, begrudgingly, for any sight we wanted to see (note we love going off the beaten path for our trips, but also it's nice to fit in the main sights as well, especially in such a historical city as Paris). For instance, the directions to Versailles were convoluted and overly difficult. Not once did i mention the train you could take out or any real helpful information on how to get there - which actually was fairly easy, why not just spell it out in the book? It also basically suggested Versailles was overrated and go check out some other palace. As Versailles is well, Versailles, I think it would have behooved the guide writers simply to at least be clear on how to get there. All in all, this guide was very disappointing, barely felt inspiring and wasn't helpful enough in getting around Paris. I would not recommend it.

The information contained is excellent and steered us to several great spots we might have otherwise not found. The Kindle edition, however, is a bit clunky in places. The maps are relatively low resolution and, when enlarged to useful proportion, are too blurry to read. Likewise, the key to the places on the map is in another spot...so hope you have an eidetic memory or like flipping back and forth, back and forth. But, is light to carry the electrons and somewhat searchable. So there's that.

Took this book everywhere with us. The prices are just a bit out of date and some of the opening times for venues were a bit off, but most of the other information was accurate. We used the book everyday and were thrilled to have it! It features in many of our pics!

I am a big fan of the Rough Guides and always consult them before traveling to a destination.
So I happily ordered the Paris guide for an upcoming trip.
Unfortunately, I've been a bit disappointed by this copy.
My main complaints are somewhat technical. The "Basics" section is done with a font and color combination that is exceptionally hard to read. The letters are so light that even in good light it's a strain to see at all, must less read. The callout boxes in this section, in light blue, are even worse. Style is important, but functionality cannot be sacrificed for interesting colors and fonts.

My second complaint is that the index is also lacking. Several key areas that I've tried to find in the index are just completely missing, such as The Catacombs. Information is in the book, why not give an index entry?

Overall I am highly satisfied with the Rough Guide series, but this particular guide just fell short of the high standard I expect from them.

I am an expert in France, French and travel. I only need a guide book for the latest information and recent changes. I buy several guides each year. Each guide for a different kind of information. I find the Rough Guides to be one of the best but they would have to be updated each year to suit my needs and be my sole reference.

This is my first experience with a "Rough Guide". I have taken many trips (3 to Paris), using the usual suspects' travel guides. Compared to others, Rough Guide seems to have A LOT more items and areas listed. Many guides narrow cities down to "must sees" and give decided opinions on what is worth your time and what is not. This is very useful for first and second timers to keep them from being overwhelmed with possibilities and extraneous info. This Guide, however, mentions many many things I've never even heard of in Paris. It doesn't give very many pointed opinions - so you can decide for yourself whether or not you might like to see something. This Guide also goes a bit farther out from the tourist center of the city. Most guides sort of stick to the first 8 arrondisements and Montmartre. I will definitely use this guide to plan my upcoming, fourth trip to Paris. To get off of the beaten tourist track a bit. I don't think this is necessarily a guide to carry with you around the city (there is A LOT of information in it) - but a great one to write yourself notes as to what you want to see and do - and carry those.
