It’s called the City of Light, but perhaps it should be called the City of Promise. Around every corner is the promise of another beautiful street, another bistro filled with people eating delicious food (Paris is a city where you have to work at having a bad meal), another building that in any other city would be remarkable, but in Paris is just another building. Walk down practically any block in Paris, and the sights, smells and sounds will excite you. Grab this little guide and experience the top sights and great neighborhoods of Paris! Paris Walks features: • Six walks through the Islands, Left Bank, Marais, Major Sights, Montmartre, and Culinary Walks • Street-by-street directions • Detailed Maps • Travel Tips

We're heading to Oslo, Norway, so let's take a look at its top five sights.
• Opera House (Operahuset)
The roof of this fantastic building angles to ground level (as if it rises from the water). It invites visitors to walk up to the roof and enjoy the panoramic views of the city.

The Nobel Peace Prize Award is awarded in the impressive Central Hall decorated with murals depicting scenes from Norwegian history.
• National Gallery (Nasjonalgalleriet)
Norway's largest collection of paintings, drawings, and sculptures. You'll find Munch's famous The Scream here.
• Frogner Park and the Vigeland Sculpture Park

• Viking Ship Museum (Vikingskipshuset)
One of the many great museums found on the Bygdøy peninsula, this museum is home to three Viking ships dating back to the 9th century.

Cosmopolitan Barcelona is the gateway to Spain’s Mediterranean coast, and has so much to offer, whether you have a day or a week in this fabulous city. You’ll find world-class museums, including the Museu Picasso, with some of this artist’s most interesting works. Or perhaps you’d prefer to wander the narrow streets of the Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter) filled with medieval buildings. Barcelona also has some of the most interesting architecture in Europe, especially the structures designed by Antoni Gaudí. Don’t miss the indescribable and uncompleted La Sagrada Família (Church of the Holy Family), Barcelona’s most recognizable landmark. Barcelona is an easy city to get around on foot. So, we've included walking tours of the interesting neighborhoods of this fantastic destination. And get ready to stay up late in Spain’s second-largest city, because Barcelona is known for its vibrant nightlife. If you have only a few days, we’ll make it easy for you to truly experience Barcelona. Our walks are designed for you to see the most sights in the shortest time. So forget those large, bulky travel books. This handy little guide to Barcelona is all you need to make your visit enjoyable, memorable—and easy.

Travel to Europe may never be the same, but we will not be abandoning it.
Europe has so much to offer. If art is your passion, there’s the Louvre in Paris, the world’s largest—and greatest—art museum. If eating and drinking in a festive atmosphere is more to your liking, you’ve got Madrid’s tapas bars. And if you’re a history buff, you can take a thought-provoking stroll along what was the Berlin Wall.
As the title says, our little guide will make your trip easy. Tuck it into your pocket and head out for a great day of sightseeing. You’ll have access to Europe’s top sights right at your fingertips (from the canals of Venice to the Sistine Chapel in Rome to the Picasso Museum in Barcelona to the Red-Light District in Amsterdam), with insider tips on cafes, restaurants, and shops. We’ve also given detailed directions for walks of the major sights of some of Europe’s most spectacular cities.
