During this time the wealth of the empire was used to create masterpieces of architecture and art, many of which still remain in Istanbul to this day. This collection of pleasant walks reveals the splendid legacy of the Byzantines. From the magnificent domed nave of the Hagia Sophia to the majestic remains of the 1500 year-old Theodosian land walls, from the exquisite mosaics of the Chora Church to the Greek Orthodox churches of the Bosphorus and Fener, this book explores some of the finest treasures Istanbul has to offer. Against a backdrop of monuments, churches, palaces and sacred springs, the history, culture, art and religion of the Byzantines are presented and explained.

Or this would have four stars. The pictures are good and the information is better in this thin and concise yet valuable volume. However, the published seriously overcharged for this book - it would be more appropriate to pay about ten dollars less.

Rick Steves' city guide to Budapest is but one of his series of excellent travel guides. To those who are used to Lonely Planet, whose writers seem to rely more and more on past experiences that can be out of date, Steves provides a new and invigorating exploration which takes the reader anbd traveller on interesting and informative explorations of the places about which he writes.

His city walks are full of information, not only of places to explore but also of restaurants and cafes along the way, just where a rest seems appropriate.

I was even more pleased that his Budapest book gave information as to booking for the Hungarian State Opera and other major cultural events, while his section on food and wine included little shops in which to buy regional specialities.

His extension into the surruonding areas, which provide suggestions for sl;ightly extended stays.
is also greatly appreciated.

Most important, however, ius the format which provides aeasy and clear information on all aspects of travelling in this city.

I WAS NOT TO IMPRESSED WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHY BUT I FOUND THIS BOOK VERY READABLE AND IT WAS IMMENSLY USEFUL DURING MY LAST TRIP. THE AUTHOR REALLY KNOWS WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT, (I AM A SCHOLAR MYSELF IN THIS FIELD) ALTHOUGH HE SOMETIMES MAKES LITTLE MISTAKES. IN SPITE OF THIS I WOULD PREFER THIS BOOK TO THE THOROUGHLY WRITTEN BUT VERY DULL BLUE GUIDES.
