Fodor’s Travel Publications, New York, 2002. 96 pages, plus map.
Available at Sembach Library (914.923 FIS).
Check out the new Fodor’s City Packs. We have quite a few at the
library. I found that the City Pack for Amsterdam was the perfect
accompaniment to a weekend in the city. There’s a detailed street
map included that was invaluable in finding our way around. The book
itself is short and lightweight, and therefore easy to carry around without
weighing you down. It highlights Amsterdam’s top 25 sights, so you
can choose how you want to spend your time.
These City Packs are perfect for those of us living in Europe who want
to spend a day or two in one city. It would also be good on a longer
trip, when you could leave your other, heavier guidebooks in the hotel.
It helps you decide what you want to see and then gets you there.
