World’s Greatest Cities
A Journey Through the Most Dynamic and Fascinating Cities in the World
by Editors of Chartwell Books
This title is a lovely resource for travelers both virtual and real. Iconic locations from each featured city are highlighted. For New York, it is the Empire State building. For Beijing readers see the Forbidden City while in Venice, we view St. Mark’s Basilica and in Paris, Notre Dame. Then there is Christ the Redeemer in Rio, Tower Bridge in London and Senso-ji Temple in Tokyo. If these locations intrigue you, this book will be a delight.
For each featured city, there is a spread with a map, key facts and then an essay. This is followed by a detailed look at the featured building. Throughout there are many photos of each of these amazing metropolises.
This book would be a great addition to the travel library of someone you know. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
