"For 10 years, the New York Times 36 hours travel column has provided fail-safe weekend break solutions. This weighty, cloth-bound compendium of European weekends makes a fine coffee table book-cum-emergency escape planner. Beautifully organized under the eye of former NYT deputy travel editor Barbara Ireland." --The Independent (Magazine), London, Royaume-Uni
