With an in-depth look at thirty cities worldwide, the World’s Greatest Cities is the perfect coffee table or waiting room read.
From New York City to Istanbul, many of civilization’s best cities are highlighted. Each city’s section contains a two-page iconic full-color photograph title page. In the following two pages, maps and photos highlight the city’s key facts, history and landmarks. A multi-page article explains significant facts about the city and additional tourist attractions are depicted. Finally, there is a two-page schematic of the city’s most popular historic site that included fun facts and interior photographs.
The text and especially the gorgeous illustrations will fuel your desire for travel. The World’s Greatest Cities is a great gift for the recently retired or any future world traveler. The hardest part is to decide where to go first. 4 stars!
