No more struggling against the wind to fold back the extra large city map you picked up at the tourist office. No more carrying around the exhaustive but back-achingly heavy guide you borrowed from the library. The only thing you need when out and about is a MapGuide. The unique Everyman MapGuide series cleverly combines maps and text in an easy-to-use format, listing the best sights, restaurants and shops alongside fold-out maps of exceptional clarity. Each guide divides the city into sections and devotes two double pages to each of them. Sections are colour coded, and a small area map at the bottom of the page tells you where you are within the city, and within the guide. There are also 4 pages of useful information about the city at the front of the book, and a 4-page city-wide hotel section at the back; plus a street index and thematic index. Stylish, clever, practical and, at GBP5.99, very good value for money, a MapGuide is the indispensable pocket companion to your week end or short break away.
