Item description for Time Out South of France: Provence and the Cote d'Azur (Time Out Guides) by Time Out...
One of the most romanticized and written-about regions of Europe, the South of France brings together ancient and modern history, stunning scenery, the unparalleled elegance of Cannes and Saint-Tropez, and the raw, energetic pulse of Marseille. There are remote villages, forgotten churches, and vast cloudless skies; there are legendary restaurants and blue-chip casinos; there are vibrant riverfronts and backstreet city bars; and no one can take travelers closer to the action than Time Out's team of expert resident writers. Fluent in the language and tuned in to the people and politics of this sun-drenched region, they guide visitors across the map, from the Alps to sea level, not missing a sight along the way. This edition of Time Out South of France features new sidebars, photographs, and introductions, as well as updated listings and maps and a new chapter focusing on cultural background.

South of France book Jan 9, 2007
This book is OK; there is a lot on information in here.
Very up-to-date information Dec 5, 2002
This guide has really up-to-date information. In addition to quoting all prices in Euros, it also has updated hours for major attractions. It's very useful when going to the Cote d'Azure in off-peak seasons, because you would want to know when the attractions are closed. This guide also has extensive public transportation information, so if you don't rent a car, you will want to have this guide in your hand. The only complaint I have is that the book could use more maps (I strongly recommend getting a comprehensive map for the region you are going). For example, it talks about the village Eze between Nice and Monaco, but then the train only stops at Eze-sur-Mer, which is not on any maps, so you don't know if the two places are close enough to walk or not. Or, it talks about tourist offices in the various towns, and lists the addresses, but there's no map of the town so you can't find those tourist offices. etc. Overall, it's a good guidebook.
