Excellent for an overview 5. Juli 2010
Von BrazilOnTheRoad - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This "Discover" books are very different from the usual Lonely Planet's guides. Yes, they came in full color, have great pictures and are easier to read. Therefore, they are excellent as a first reading, if you are interested only in the top highlights, or if you are not sure about your destination. Do not expect an usual Lonely Planet's guide, specially if you are looking for detailed information and aiming to longer stays. Of course, as a multi-country book it is not supposed to have too many details, however I was expecting something like the Western Europe guide in colors, but it is definitely not the case. One last thing: Portugal is not comprehended in Discover Europe!

A Good Overview Book, But Not for Independent Trip Planning 2. Oktober 2010
Von Grey Wolffe - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I've always found 'Lonely Planet' books to be thoughtful and full of good information. The "Problem" with this book is that it's really not an overview of Europe. It's mostly Western Europe with Greece and Turkey added, and with Denmark, Scandinavia, Luxembourg and Portugal subtracted. I find this to be irrational in that if you go to Europe you see the Benelux countries and can's without Lux, or Spain without Portugal.

Don't expect any of the countries to be very comprehensive. For example: France only includes the Riviera and Languedoc and Provence in the South, Paris and the north of France above the Seine; Italy has nothing on the Adriatic coast, the South or Sicily/Sardinia. It's for people who haven't gone to Europe before or expect to go on guided tours and want to learn about some off the common ground, but not much.

What makes 'Lonely Planet' worthwhile is that it takes you off the beaten path, but in this case it beats-its-feet all over the beaten path. This is not for independent travelers who want to see the 'real' country. Think of this as a "Cruise" itinerary without the boat.

Too Superficial To Be a Useful Reference 7. Oktober 2010
Von Terry Sunday - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Having visited 11 of the 16 countries profiled in "Discover Europe," I was hoping for a book that would be useful not only as an armchair reference, but also as an on-the-road guide for any future European trips that I might undertake. When I first hefted the heavy, 816-page volume, I was impressed. Surely, I thought, this massive tome contains lots of useful information.

Unfortunately, my first impressions turned out not to be true. On further examination, as I paged through the sections covering some of the countries that I've most enjoyed visiting, such as France, Greece and Turkey, I became disappointed with several aspects of the book. First, there are not many maps in it, and those that do appear are small, not very detailed and hard to read. They may be okay if you're on an organized tour and just want to get an idea of the "lay of the land" where the bus is going to take you next, but they are useless for the independent traveler. Second, the country sections are poorly organized. Information is shotgunned onto each page in various colors, in sidebars, with different fonts and type sizes, etc. Third, and to me the cardinal failing of "Discover Europe," is the lack of depth of the information it presents. Most of the memorable experiences that I've had on my European trips, such as visiting the Blue Mosque and the Basilica Cistern in Istanbul, trekking through fields of lavender in Provence and pub-hopping in England, get at most a sentence or two of text. Attractions such as museums and galleries are often glossed over, and there is virtually nothing useful about eating, drinking and lodging. Some of this information is perishable, of course, and the prudent person will do a lot of research on-line before traveling, but the paucity and shallowness of such material in this book make me wonder why any is included at all.

I've concluded that "Discover Europe" would have been of no use to me on the kinds of independent trips that I take, and likewise will not be my guidebook of choice for future trips. Given the number of countries that it covers, superficiality is inevitable, and for that reason I don't understand who makes up the intended audience. One or more country-specific travel guides for the itinerary you plan would, in my opinion, be far more useful. "Discover Europe" is the "If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium" guidebook (if you're familiar with the movie, you'll understand the reference). It will not be in my suitcase the next time I travel to the Continent.

A good place to start 18. November 2010
Von J. Peplinski - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
As you might expect, it would be impossible to cram all of Europe into one small travel book. There simply is no way to go into great detail for every single European country here, but it does provide a nice overview of some of the most popular points of interest, while also touching on some the more off-the-beaten-path places Lonely Planet is famous for. I would consider this book a nice introduction to European travel, but when planning a trip to a specific country or two you'll definitely want a more comprehensive guide to your actual destination.

Though it is in full color, I would really have appreciated a few more photographs!
Broad guidebook is a good starting point for tackling europe 26. Oktober 2010
Von Omar Siddique - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This high level overview of much of Europe helps resolve the traveler's conundrum of "where should I go"?

The all-in-one approach covers many of the highlights of what a visitor should experience in Europe, with suggested itineraries, a top-25 list of the continent's highlights, and a per-country summary of highlights and specialties. There's also a particularly useful calendar of events/holidays across all the countries. The succinct but detailed approach is very helpful versus the usual information overload of googling for a topic as broad as "travel to europe".

While it's unlikely a single book can cover so many historic, diverse nations in any detail, the recommendations for countries I'm familiar with touched on all the highlights I'd recommend to a fellow traveler. Eg, for Czech Republic: Sedlec Ossuary, Karlovy Vary, Cesky Krumlov, etc.

But, some of the choice of countries included was surprising to me; Massive Turkey (most of which lies in Asia) is included, but upcoming Romania isn't. Croatia has a section, but Slovenia is excluded, even though I'd recommend an itinerary including both neighboring nations. EU members Portugal and Denmark also aren't covered (despite being interesting and bordering on countries that are included). Other omissions make sense: Bosnia and Luxembourg aren't on most travel lists, despite their proximity to more common destinations.

Unlike older LP guides, this volume is glossy color all the way through, with pictures and typefaces that provide maximum information quickly. The layout is reminiscent of modern online content, and I find it very easy to skim. There are fewer dense listings of hotels and restaurants, and more coverage of what to expect and what makes each location unique and worth seeking out.

My original skepticism about the "pretty" full-color, color-coded design of the LP "Discover" series has faded quickly, as I've found them surprisingly accessible and easy to use. I'm an experienced traveler, and while I've used Lonely Planet guides for many years, they had become much less useful to me in recent years, as more timely and detailed information became available online.

For me, the "Discover" series puts LP back on the map for guidebooks that are still relevant today, as the book condenses and summarizes travel information in a way conducive to planning and as a nice segue into further research.

You'll definitely need additional research to plan a specific trip, but this volume is an excellent way to get an overview and decide where you want to go. Recommended.
