Text too small

A great guide as always by Rough Guide but you’ll need perfect eyesight to read the text. Must be about 6 point. It’s absoluateoy tiny. See if they do a bigger version of the book like they used to.

Not very practical at all

Reviewed on October 26, 2021
Paperback | Verified

This book is not very useful at all for travel. There is too little practical information on each location. I bought it as I was visiting Montpellier and there was little information about the city or surrounding area for practical travel.
