A century ago the Continental traipse was an accepted rite of passage. Well, viva the European tour. It's as alluring as it ever was, but all the particulars have changed. With planes, trains, hovercrafts, and rental cars, visas, red tape, and political conflict, an up-to-date guide is a necessity. This one covers 30 countries--everything from Austria to Turkey--including Morocco, Estonia, and Greece. The guide is peppered with informative insights into the culture, history, and pulse of each country, city, and village, and there are 100 maps with eight color transportation guides bringing the Paris Metro, Greek ferry system, and London Underground to easily legible life. Add in nightlife, accommodations, sights to see, cafes to find, and festivals to attend, and the Rough Guide to Europe is a tremendous achievement.
