Cadogan guides cover a range of destinations – primarily in Europe - and combine solid research, detailed, practical information and individual points of view on a range of cities, regions and countries. They are particularly strong on historical and cultural sightseeing but also carry a good sense of the particular lifestyle of a destination. Informed itineraries on topics such as architecture, food and drink are included, and the low-down on outdoor activities and cultural events is also provided. Authors have handpicked their own recommendations for places to stay and to eat and drink and an added feature of the series is site and building plans, which are included where relevant to descriptions provided in the accompanying text.
Introductions to Cadogan guides are more sizeable than many other market competitors, containing a profile of the region, history, art and architecture, topical matters, food and drink, planning your trip and an A-Z of practical concerns on tourist information. Each title in the series is organized geographically by region and has a particular focus on cultural and historical sights. Guides conclude with a glossary, language tips and recommendations for further reading.
