You'll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go--they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping, and nightlife. You'd be lost without us!

Completely updated every year (unlike most of the competition), Frommer's Paris features gorgeous full-color photos of the sights and experiences that await you. It covers all the traditional tourist favorites but also lets you in on local finds, neighborhood hangouts, and little-known gems.

In case you're worried about the city's high prices, we've included tips on finding the best airfare, plus a host of affordable hotels and restaurants. And if money is no object, we'll show you the best places to spend it, from the Ritz to the hippest new boutique hotels, from grand dining rooms serving classic haute cuisine to the latest cutting-edge restaurants.

You'll rely on Frommer's for a complete guide to the city's sights, from the Louvre to Notre-Dame. We've included suggested itineraries plus a whole chapter full of detailed walking tours that will help you get acquainted with the most intriguing neighborhoods. We'll help you find the city's best pastries, enjoy the best after-dark diversions, and shop 'til you drop; then we'll take you on side trips to Versailles, Chartres, Fontainebleau, and Giverny. It's all here in one easy-to-use guide, complete with a free color fold-out map and an online directory that makes trip-planning a snap!
