Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rick Steves Paris For 35 years, Rick Steves have been writing self-tour books to inform tourists who plan to see Europe. The book covers hotels, restaurants, most important sites and museums in the area. Side trips from the city such as what train to take to Versailles. For the budget minded tourist who only has a week or two to see everything, this book will tell you how to avoid crowds and to avoid scams. It includes a small city map so tourist would be able to navigate the city. I used this book when I went to Paris. From the book, I knew which museums were closed on certain days, what to do during Bastille Day (big holiday in France) and went to Versailles to see King Louis XIV's palace. It was very helpful because I only stayed in the city for three days.
