Reviews - What do customers think about Michelin the Green Guide Languedoc Roussillon Tarn Gorges (Michelin Green Guide: Languedoc, Roussillon, Tarn Gorges English Edition)?
Why isn't all of Languedoc-Roussillon here? May 18, 2005
Michelin's guides are a five-star resource for travel information, from hotels and restaurants to attractions and how to get there. This guide is no exception, containing all the practical info you'd expect from Michelin, plus maps and some color pictures. The alphabetical listing of sites makes information easy to find. As you'd expect from a guide published by a tire company, the Michelin series seems best suited to car travel. I appreciate the star ratings of cities and attractions (1 star = "interesting", 3 starts = "highly recommended"), which help you determine whether a detour is warranted, or helps you meander your way through the countryside on a day of exploring.
I'm annoyed with this guide, however, because even though the title includes the names "Languedoc" and "Roussillon", it is NOT a guide to the entire French region known as Languedoc-Roussillon. Rather, it includes parts of Languedoc-Roussillon and parts of the adjacent region of Midi-Pyrenees. I bought it in preparation for a stay in Nimes, which is in the Gard department of Languedoc-Rousillon. Inexplicably, information about the Gard is found in the Michelin "Provence" guide, even though the Gard is not in fact part of Provence. So, if you're wanting to purchase a Michelin guide for information about a particular city or region, use the "Look Inside" feature to review the Table of Contents before you buy!
