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 four pages of useful information about the city at the front of the book, and a four-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.
