Description: These terrifically compact and fact-filled guides to major cities around the world are beautiful, unique and easy to use. With 600 color photographs -- more than any other guide in this size -- these books combine the inside information of an Access or Gault-Millau guide, the practical information of a Michelin Red and Insight Guide -- about where to stay and eat and what to see -- in a seductive, slender, and highly portable volume.

Each guide is divided into seven sections with brief and lively descriptions for each entry: Arriving and Getting Around points up the way of getting into a city and then once you are there, the most efficient local transportation; 51 entries in Where to Stay over a wide range of hotels with the necessary information about price and accomodation; 51 restaurants are listed in Where to Eat; jazz clubs, theater, night clubs, and other after-hour places are among the 54 entries in After Dark; 63 museums, monuments, and architectural sites are included in What to See; Further Afield takes you on 7 excursions out of the city but in the vicinity; Browsing and Shopping which guides you to 56 specialty and department stores as well as flea markets and tells you what they have to offer. In the map section in the back, in addition to bus and subway maps, are 7 double page spreads of the city area by area with dots corresponding to all the entries in the guidebook.

This guide will take you to grand hotels like Im Palais Schwarzenberg or the Hotel Bristol or to more modest and charming hotels like the Hotel Pension Arenberg; show you the places to eat whether at the trendy Dennstedt or Principe to the Restaurant Steirereck, considered the best in all of Austria;also included are such unusual places as Rudolph Scheer & Sohne for custom made shoes, Optiker Hartmann for custom made eyeglasses, Taki- To Kinder mode for unusual children's or teenagers' fashion including inflatable dragon coats; to the many great museums from the Kunsthistorisches Museum, the Albertina or to such Jugenstil Viennese architecture as the celebrated Secession Building with its gold filagreed dome and Klimt frieze.

Each Guide takes you fearlessly and efficiently into the heart and culture of the city. Smart, incisive, sharp and sleek, these guides are as practical as they are beautiful.
