My new favorite guidebooks are Moleskine's City Notebooks. Instead of telling you what they think is best, they give you a map and empty pages to write down your favorites instead!
The good things about City Notebooks
Since they don't send you along the path of every other
poor sap tourist, the City Notebooks open
up the city and its possibilities. If you're an independent traveler, they're perfect. Search for the range of Moleskine City Notebooks on
The drawback of Moleskine City guides
As they make you do the exploring, and work, on your own, you're likely to end up with some dud experiences. Seasoned jet-setters won't have a problem with that, but if you're unwilling to take a risk, these Moleskine guides aren't for you!
