The Absolute Best Places to Eat in Rome, Venice and Paris

Andy Herbach Eating and DrinkingWhenever we go on a small group tour to Italy or Paris (or anywhere else, for that matter), I strongly suggest travelers take a copy of Andy Herbach's books.  Andy Herbach is the author of the Eating & Drinking series of menu translators and restaurant guides, including Eating & Drinking in Paris, Eating & Drinking in Italy, Eating & Drinking in Spain and Portugal and Eating & Drinking in Latin America.  The Professor can tell you, without equivocation, these are the best guides for not only selecting the best places to eat, but in helping diners read and translate what's on the menu.  No more "point and pray" when selecting from a menu.  Andy's guides help you order confidently and correctly from the menu.
Andy is also the author of several books published by Europe Made Easy Travel Guides, including Paris Walks, Europe Made Easy, Italy Made Easy, Paris Made Easy, Berlin Made Easy, Amsterdam Made Easy, French Riviera Made Easy, Provence Made Easy, Oslo Made Easy, and Barcelona Made Easy
