Europe offers more iconic experiences than practically anywhere else on the planet

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Oliver Berry, escritor y fotógrafo de Cornwell, se licenció en Literatura Inglesa en la University College London en 1999. Empezó a escribir para Lonely Planet en el año 2002 y en varios periódicos nacionales, revistas, libros, enciclopedias y websites. Sus trabajos han sido galardonados con The Guardian Young Travel Writer of the Year y TNT Magazine People’s Choice Award.

Autor británico, escribe para Lonely Planet desde los años 80 y desde 1984 ha estado haciendo incursiones en el subcontinente asiático. Cuando no está documentadon o escribiendo guías, y después de haber estudiado geopolítica en Sussex, Mark suele estar en la costa de Inglaterra, en Bélgica o en clubes de jazz de Azerbaiyán tocando blues que aprendió cuando vivía en Japón.

Alexis vive en la isla de Hidra (Grecia) y viaja de vez en cuando a Atenas para una dosis de vida urbana. Siempre feliz de explorar los secretos mejor guardados de su país adoptivo, se esfuerza por desmentir el tópico de que Grecia no es más que una hilera de playas arenosas. Escritora de guías de viajes durante dos décadas, Alexis ha vivido un año en la Antártida, ha cruzado el Pacífico en velero y ha narrado sus estancias en Asia y las Américas. Ha colaborado en varias guías Lonely Planet y, además, es pintora.

Anthony es un escritor y fotógrafo independiente especializado en España, Norte y Oeste de África, el Ártico y Oriente Medio. En el 2001 se enamoró perdidamente de España y regresó al año siguiente sin billete de vuelta, sin hablar ni una palabra de español y sin conocer a penas a nadie en el país. Residente en Madrid, cuando no está trabajando para Lonely Planet escribe y hace fotografías sobre España, África y Oriente Medio para varios periódicos y revistas de Australia, UK y Estados Unidos.

En sus viajes a más de sesenta y cinco países Andrea ha recorrido la distancia equivalente que separa la Tierra de la Luna. Su fascinación por Berlín surgió en su primera visita, en verano de 1989, meses antes de la caída del Muro. Andrea nació y creció en Alemania, se formó en Londres y UCLA y lleva dos décadas escribiendo sobre su país natal. Ha colaborado en más de cincuenta títulos de Lonely Planet, incluida la primera edición de la guía Berlín De cerca, todas las ediciones de la guía de Berlín, la de Alemania y Lo mejor de Alemania.

Con sede fija en Praga, Mark lleva más de 20 años viviendo y trabajando en Europa Central, primero como periodista para The Economist Group y después para Bloomberg News y Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. Licenciado en Relaciones Internacionales en Columbia University de Nueva York fue cofundador de la Globe Bookstore&Coffeehouse. Actualmente trabaja como escritor independiente de viajes en Lonely Planet, en The Wall Street Journal y National Geographic Traveler y, cuando no está viajando, imparte clases de Historia de Europa Central y Periodismo en la Anglo-American University de Praga.

Neil nació en Escocia y, salvo por unos años en el extranjero, lleva viviendo allí casi toda su vida. Escritor independiente a tiempo completo desde 1988, Neil ha viajado por cinco continentes y escrito más de cincuenta guías de viaje y senderismo para diversas editoriales como HarperCollins, AA Publishing, Berlitz y Lonely Planet.

Tras trabajar muchos años como editora en la sede de Melbourne de Lonely Planet, Virginia decidió que sería más feliz escribiendo guías que encargándolas. Desde que tomó esa decisión, a viajado a nueve países para Lonely Planet, la mayor parte de ellos alrededor del Mediterráneo. Aunque reside en Australia, pasa gran parte del año haciendo investigación sobre guías de viaje, entre ellas, las de Turquía, su país favorito. Sobre Estambul escribe también para varias revistas internacionales y sitios web. 

Escribe para Lonely Planet desde 1990, siendo coautor de múltiples ediciones de las guías de Japón, South Pacific, Tonga e Islas Griegas. Craig ha recorrido a pie Japón de punta a punta (¡3200 km en 99 días!), ha subido a las 100 montañas famosas, ha peregrinado (a pie) hasta los 88 templos de Shikoku y hasta los 33 templos de Saigoku (en bicicleta), y ha cruzado a pie el país desde el mar del Japón al Pacífico escalando ¡los picos de más de 3000 m! Se han publicado los libros en inglés y japonés de dichas aventuras.

Kerry Christiani, galardonada escritora de viajes, es autora de unas 20 guías de Lonely Planet. Especialista en Europa central y mediterránea, colabora regularmente en publicaciones digitales y prensa escrita, como Olive, Lonely Planet Traveller y bbc.com/travel. Kerry vive en la Selva Negra, Alemania.

Nicola Williams, escritora de viajes y asesora editorial británica, vive en Francia y escribe sobre este país desde hace más de una década. Ha trabajado en numerosos títulos de Lonely Planet y en muchos artículos para lonelyplanet.com, BBC’s Lonely Planet Magazine, French Magazine, Cool Camping France y Cool Camping Europe.

Después de haber vivido en Roma durante más de una década, Duncan sigue fascinado por esta ciudad que se ha convertido en su hogar. Se enamoró de ella por primera vez en 1996, y desde entonces ha trabajado en numerosas publicaciones de Lonely Planet, entre ellas, en las últimas cinco ediciones de la guía Roma, además de en títulos como Sicilia, Cerdeña, Nápoles y la Costa Amalfitana. También a escrito acerca de Italia en diversos periódicos y revistas como Lonely Planet Magazine, Olive o The Times.

Ryan Ver Berkmoes vivió durantes tres años en Fráncfort, donde trabajó como editor de una revista hasta que su carrera cambió de rumbo y empezó a trabajar en Lonely Planet. Desde 1997 ha participado en más de 90 títulos.

Says only the basic (you can find most of the information in the internet). Very low information about "detours" of the main cities. Beautiful illustrations.

Good coverage of a dozen European countries 29. Januar 2014
Von Nick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
"Discover Europe" is a misnomer - this guide only covers Ireland, England, Spain, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Greece, Australia, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. Once you get over that, the Lonely Planet Discover Europe is a halfway decent travel guide.

The strength of LP Discover Europe is that it provides easily digestible chunks about a place with lots of photos. Going to Prague or spending a week in Greece and want to make sure you make the most out of your time? Well, there's a decent amount of coverage to help you do just that. There's lots of maps, photos and even drawings of interiors of some museums to help you get around. A book of this size is portable but not easily pocketable.

So who's this good for? Well, if you were doing a multi-week trip with lots of stops along the way, this would make for an excellent book. This also makes for a great book for armchair travelers. Depending on your travel style, the other comparable book is Rick Steves' Best of Europe 2014, which is more indepth but also 600 pages longer. It all depends on your scope and length of your trip. But if I were doing a multi-week trip and wanted to make sure I saw the highlights and didn't miss anything, this is a good colorful book to start planning your trip with.

Whets the traveler's appetite 24. Januar 2014
Von Stephanie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I've enjoyed specific Lonely Planet guides before so I was eager to see how the series would treat an entire continent. Again, I was pleasantly surprised. The set-up of the book makes sense (somewhat geographically, west to east) and the balance between general information and specific information was done well.

It definitely has that Lonely Planet feel, with offbeat suggestions alongside the traditional. As a traveler to Europe, I would treat this guide as (1) an essential and (2) an inspiration. The guide gives the new or somewhat familiar traveler more confidence in exploring.

In comparing with other recent LP country guides (England and France, in my case), there was some overlap but only on the essentials. I feel like this would be the guide to get if doing three or more countries in Europe OR if you don't want to plan too much ahead and only want to hit the highlights and wing it from there.

The details in here are really good, better than any other travel guide on this level (meaning covering a large geographic area) and the readability is high. This guide is just plain fun, whether you're planning or dreaming about a European vacation. It's also quite portable and easy to take along on your trip. I would suggest checking out LP on your device if you want to look less touristy but orient yourself with this guide first and you'll spend more time seeing and doing and less time figuring out where you want to go.

Discover Some Of Europe! 22. November 2014
Von Molly P. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Like many people, I have a bucket list that's at least three pages long, and many of the items on my list have something to do with Europe. When I saw this book -- Lonely Planet's Discover Europe -- I decided to get it and start really planning a trip. (Disclaimer: as of writing this review, I still have not visited Europe. You are reading the review of a planner/dreamer.)

Right away, I was impressed by the size/weight of this book. I though I'd hit the Europe Travel Information Jackpot -- until I realized that this book doesn't have information on all the European countries! Forget you, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland & Portugal (to name a few.) That was a bummer. The countries that ARE included in this book are: Britain & Ireland, The Netherlands & Belgium, Spain, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland & The Czech Republic, Italy, and Greece. I think the writers were trying to highlight the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, but I think a better title for this book might be "Discover Some Of Europe." Oh well. Nitpick over.

On the countries that ARE included, there is a wealth of information here -- maps, photographs, info. about accommodations, restaurants, sightseeing, local holidays, currency, transportation, and so much more. I like that this book tells you when the best times of the year to visit each country are. (Before I read this book, I was considering traveling to Venice in July or August. I've changed my mind!!) Each region has its own section, and the sections each have their own page edge-color, making it easier to go directly to the information/section you're interested in.

I would recommend this book to someone who wants to visit Europe for the first time, but doesn't really know where to start. Just remember that this book leaves out several countries. You will also probably want to read it BEFORE you begin traveling, and not lug it to Europe with you. It's a heavy book, so get ready to take notes (or rip out pages... or just buy the Kindle Edition.)

Excellent and detailed account. Well-chosen photos, mainly disclosing significant architecture. 15. Februar 2014
Von Tom Brody - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
DISCOVER EUROPE by Berry, Averbuck, Baker, Christiani, Elliott, Garwood, Ham, Maxwell, McLachlan, Schulte-Peevers, Bermoes, and Williams, is an 847 page guidebook in the LONELY PLANET series. The book is printed on glossy paper, and every other page or so has a glossy photo, color map, or multi-colored drawing. The book has eight chapters, which are color-coded, as indicated below. The chapters are:

(1) INTRODUCTION (yellow).
(2) BRITAIN and IRELAND (dark green).
(3) FRANCE (orange).
(4) SPAIN (light blue).
(5) ITALY (red).
(6) NETHRLANDS and BELGIUM (light green).
(7) GERMANY (dark blue).
(8) AUSTRIA, SWITZERLAND, CZECH REPUBLIC (purple).
(9) GREECE (light green).
(10) History, politics, food, sports, beaches, credit cards, transportation (white).

From the map in the INTRODUCTION, it is apparent that some countries were not included, e.g., Portugal, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Croatia, and Poland. The INTRODUCTION provides a large photograph of Coliseum in Rome, Eiffel Tower, gondolas in Venice, Hofburg Palace in Vienna, canals in Amsterdam, The Alhambra palace in Granada (photos on pages 19, 297, 374, and 375), Roman ruins in Bath, Ireland, Gaudi’s architecture in Barcelona (photos on pages 21, 332), Giant’s Causeway in Ireland (photos on pages 25, 164); ski slopes in Chamonix (photos on pagtes 27, 251), rolling hills in Tuscany, and other delights.

The book is abundantly practical, as it uses a quarter-page or half-page photograph to attract the reader’s attention to the page, where the same page typically contains a dozen little paragraphs, each containing a blurb about a restaurant, museum, architectural wonder, commercial tour, theater, shopping attraction, or hotel. Within most of these paragraphs is a telephone number and a web site address (see how practical this book is?)

PHOTOGRAPHS. Most of the photos concern old buildings, and not landscapes, and certainly no anonymous photographs of children romping in a park, or anonymous photos of a flower bed. Because of the huge nature of this book’s topic, it was an excellent decision of the editor for the photographs to dwell mainly on one topic, namely, old buildings. At any rate, when you contrast Europe with the United States, it is evident that Europe excels in old buildings (while the U.S. is deficient), and the United States excels in amazing scenery, e.g., Crater Lake, Yosemite, Napali coast in Kauai, Arches National Park (while Europe is relatively deficient in amazing scenery).

The old buildings include CASTLE HOWARD in England (pages 50-51), OXFORD UNIVERSITY (p. 59), ROYAL ALBERT HALL (p. 92), HADRIAN’S WALL (a Roman ruin, pages 124-125), ROSSLYN CHAPEL in Scotland (p. 144-145) with a color drawing pointing out locations of statues of interest, such as LUCIFER THE FALLEN ANGEL, and detailed carving called THE APPRENTICE PILLAR (pages 144-145).

The photos include CARCASSONE an ancient fortified city in France (pages 174-175, 261), THE LOUVRE (pages 183, 196-197), NOTRE DAME (pages 190-191) with thumbnail photos showing gargoyles, wooden panels showing Bible stories, the North Rose Window, and the Great Bell. Other photos from France are MONT ST. MICHEL (p. 226, 228-229) with thumbnail photos showing bell tower, ramparts, causeway, and La Merveille (a hallway with ribbed vaulting), CHATEAU DE CHAMBORD (palace made in 1519 with a double helical staircase), PONT DU GARD (Roman aquaduct made in 19 BC).

The photos from Spain include, MUSEO DEL PRADO, with thumbnail phtos of paintings by Velazquez, Rubens, and Goya (pages 304-305), PARK GUELL (p. 345) which has whimsical buildings designed by Gaudi, MUSEO GUGGENHEIM (pages 354) which has even more whimsical architecture, designed by Frank Gehry.

Photos from Italy include TREVI FOUNTAIN (p. 382-383), and we read that, “Italy, the land that has turned its lifestyle into a designer accessory, is one of Europe’s great seducers,” VATICAN MUSEUM with photo of spiraling staircase (p. 401), PANTHEON (a 2000 year old temple with a photo showing interior view of its dome (p. 409), GALLERIA VITTORIO EMANUELE (p. 427) which is an astonishing shopping mall with a huge glass ceiling, where we read, “You can ward off bad luck by grinding your heel into the testicles of the mosaic bull on the floor,” LEANING TOWER of Pisa (p. 461), POMPEII ruins (p. 469-471).

In the chapter on NETHERLANDS, we see photos of windmills (pages 484-485), RIJKSMUSEUM and apartment buildings, and BELFORT TOWER, all characterized by soaring structures with a vertical emphasis (pages 488-489), more windmills (pages 511, 516).

In the chapter on GERMANY, we see photos of CHECKPOINT CHARLIE (p. 556) and read that it is now a tourist attraction, NEUSHWANSTEIN CASTLE (pages 7, 557, 603), SCHLOSS SAUSSOUCI palace in Potsdam (p. 583), and we read that admission to this palace is by a timed ticket. The photo shows that a dozen statues are attached to the building, just under a dome.

From Switzerland, we see photos of MATTERHORN (pages 630, 681), and BERNESE OBERLAND train passing through a scenic mountainous landscape (p. 721), and from Czech Republic, we see photos of PRAGUE CASTLE (p. 701) and we read that entry to the castle grounds is free, but going into St. Vitus Cathedral requires a ticket.

In the chapter on Greece, we see photos of DELPHI amphitheater (p. 730-731), and METEORA (p. 735, 757) a monastery built on top of a tall butte located in Kastraki, ACROPOLIS (p. 742), 744-745), with thumbnail photos showing statues of women named “Carpatids” who serve as columns to support the roof, built in 415 BC, TEMPLE OF POSEIDON, and TEMPLE OF ATHENA NIKE, and PALACE OF KNOSSOS (p. 766, 768-769).

THE TEXT. I will reproduce only one sample of the text. This is from MUSEE PICASSO. We read that the phone number is 0142712521. We read that the website is www dot musee-picasso dot fr. We read that the street address is 5 rue de Thorigny. We read, “One of Paris’ most beloved art collecitons opened its doors again after massive renovation works in summer 2013. Housed in the stunning mid 17th century Hotel Sale, the Musee Picasso woos art lovers with more than 3500 drawings, engravings, paintings, ceramic works and sculptures by the grain maître (great master) Pablo Picasso (1881-1973).” As you can see, the author is not ashamed of packing huge amounts of information into a tiny paragraph!

It is understood that each of the countries in this book have their own guidebooks in the LONELY PLANET series, as well as from other publishers. Also, it is recognized that at least a dozen of the cities in Europe have their own guidebook. Despite the huge nature of the task of covering all of Europe (except for Portugal and Denmark), this book takes itself very seriously, and plunges into fine-grained detail on every page. This is a virtue of this book, and of all of the other LONELY PLANET guidebooks.

Great overview 26. Februar 2014
Von Doug Urquhart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
So you're planning to 'do Europe', but don't have much time. Ideally, you want to visit a few places in each country, to get the flavor, possibly with a view to making a more detailed visit next time. If so, this is the book for you.
It's divided into eight sections, each around 150 pages, each section dedicated to a specific European country or region:
Britain and Ireland
France
Spain
Italy
Belgium and the Netherlands
Germany
Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic
Greece
For each region, the book lists five 'Highlights'. These include the usual suspects - Stonehenge, the Eiffel Tower, La Sagrada Familia and the like, but also some less obvious ones.
There are also short lists of recommended restaurants and accommodations, maps, itineraries, tours, side-trips, event and weather calendars and the essential 'survival guide', which lists such things as opening hours and local laws.
The whole thing is beautifully illustrated and nicely structured; browsing through the book is a very effective cure for Winter blaahs.
Of course, the level of detail isn't nearly as high as a country-specific guide book, but it still gives a really useful overview.
There's only one downside to this book - at just over two pounds, it's a bit heavy to carry around in a rucksack. Other than that, it's great.
