That’s where Frommer’s comes in. Local journalists supply the advice and details you need to create the right vacation for you. These include strategies for seeing the iconic sights without fighting the crowds; places that only locals know about; and smart itineraries so you can make the most of your time in the city. Most importantly, this book was completely overhauled after the pandemic lock-downs to better reflect the city of today.
