Über diesen Titel
These popular guides offer listings of the best sights, cities, events, pubs, castles and cafes that Europe has to offer. Steves tells not only where to go in Europe, but also where not to go. His vast experience pays off for the reader in well-thought-out itineraries for different interests. Each guide includes between 20 to 40 different maps and charts.From Library Journal:
Both of these travel guides claim to be highly opinionated and timesaving publications. But while Khedr and his coauthors concentrate on "happening" scenes for those who are serious about fun, Steves concentrates on "wring[ing] the maximum value out of your limited time and money in each" destination. Let's Party! is a casually put together book by Generation Xers who think travelers are searching for a continuation of the college party life. The maps are well executed but locate only the attractions mentioned by the authors. Major destinations such as London, Madrid, Rome, Munich, and Budapest are all covered, as are lesser- known spots such as Santorini and Ios, Greece; Interlaken, Switzerland; and Lagos, Portugal. Each chapter is predominantly a listing of bars, with limited information on culture, daytime activities, and accommodations. The execution is sloppy (the map of Salzburg misspells the city's name; the chapter on Vienna makes no mention of the famous Prater amusement park). The information was gathered in 1994 and is likely to be extremely dated by now. A unique feature is a "Party Passport" inserted in the book with various coupon offers (mostly two beers for the price of one). Not recommended. Steves, the host and writer of the PBS TV series Travels in Europe, is famous for his Europe Through the Back Door (John Muir, 1996. 14th ed.). His guide to Europe is a continuation of his annual 2 to 22 Days in Europe (John Muir) with a new format. Previous editions followed a proposed 22-day itinerary; the new edition covers more territory, and each destination is presented as a mini-vacation. Destinations include all major tourist cities and some smaller towns (Italian hill towns, Swiss alpine villages) of Western Europe (no former Iron Curtain destinations are covered except Berlin). Details on each cover orientation (via rather cluttered maps), sights, accommodations (all price ranges and many not listed in other guides), eating, and transportation. Most travel collections would be better served by buying the works from which this work was excerpted, but smaller public collections would find this a useful addition.?William R.
