This guide is designed for optimal navigation on eReaders, smartphones, and other mobile electronic devices. It is indexed alphabetically and by category, making it easier to access individual articles. Articles feature information about attractions, landmarks, districts, transportation, cultural venues, dining, history and much more. Addresses, telephones, hours of operation and admissions information are included. The guide is complemented by clearly marked maps that are linked to city attractions. An interlinked phrasebook as well as a pronunciation guide are included.
NEW FEATURE: The attraction articles now include links to Google Maps. On a dedicated electronic reader with a slow connection and a primitive browser, Google Maps will display the attraction on the map along with metro stations, roads, and nearby attractions. On an internet-enabled device such as the iPhone and the iPad, Google Maps will even show you the route from your current location to the attraction you want to go to.

A good detailed guide
We have just moved from Nice to Athens. Southern France was well worth a visit. We used Nice as our base and traveled west as far as Carcassonne. We used the iPad on the road and got this travel guide for 4.99.
The guide has an article for every major town. The guide also has a short table of contents at the beginning of each article. We were able to quickly find an article for each town we visited and to find attractions and restaurants in each town.
The selection restaurants in not exhausting but we were satisfied with the guide's suggestions. Each town also had a small map with attractions marked. We often used a paper map but when we didn't, the iPad map was useful. For the price of 4.99 this was a very good guide.
