Blue Guide Paris
Best guide books for architecture, museums and galleries
By Andrew Porter
I’ve been using Blue Guides for over forty years and they really are the best guide books for architecture, museums and galleries. I usually use them in tandem with a Rough Guide or a Lonely Planet guide which are better for hotels, restaurants and shopping. The Blue Guides are not cheap but, as ever, you get what you pay for, quality costs money. I’ve found they don’t become as out of date quite as quickly as the other guide books mentioned above. Highly recommended.
