This guide is designed for optimal navigation on eReaders, smartphones, and other mobile electronic devices. It is indexed alphabetically and by category, making it easier to access individual articles. Articles feature information about attractions, landmarks, districts, transportation, cultural venues, dining, history and much more. Addresses, telephones, hours of operation and admissions information are included. The guide is complemented by clearly marked maps that are linked to city attractions. An interlinked phrasebook as well as a pronunciation guide are included.

This travel guide also features an itinerary with our suggestions for your travel route. Itineraries include links to individual attraction articles.

NEW FEATURE: The attraction articles now include links to Google Maps. On a dedicated electronic reader with a slow connection and a primitive browser, Google Maps will display the attraction on the map along with metro stations, roads, and nearby attractions. On an internet-enabled device such as the iPhone and the iPad, Google Maps will even show you the route from your current location to the attraction you want to go to.

    This book is more then a bit confusing to read and is especially poorly organized. I would keep my money and wait for something better to come along. It does have a full version of Don Quixote as part of the package ..............very odd. Do yourself a favor and get the information from the web instead. Not only is it cheaper (free) but you could organize the information much better then this book. So, a good buy for three bucks but ten bucks is pushing it. Oh......and one more thing, the photos are soooooo tiny it's very annoying.
