How good is Rick Steves?

Jump to last reply

As an Australian I have only come to know Rick Steves through this message board (his travel books are not widely available here). I did however track down his book "Europe through the Backdoor" through my local library which makes quite good reading.

My question is:

Which of his guide books are an absolute must ( any?) to take on a trip to:

Rome ( 8 days)
Florence ( 3 days)
Venice ( 4 days)
Paris ( 3 days )

Did any work particularly well? I've been considering the one about museums. I haven't seen them in any bookstore but my husband is travelling to the States soon so I can give him a shopping list.

I don't want to take unnecessary weight!
