Frommer's Gay and Lesbian Europe
Europe is a gay adventure just waiting to happen. Written in a fun, frank, and fabulous style by four travel writers who know all the ins and outs, Frommer's Gay & Lesbian Europe is the first queer guide to Europe to include coverage on all aspects of your trip from how to get there to how to get around, from where to stay and dine to where to shop, from what to see and do to where to work out, from where to sip a cocktail to where to cruise.No matter what your budget, you'll find candid reviews of the best hotels and restaurants--mainstream, gay-friendly, and all-out gay. Are you looking for a plush suite with silk-covered walls and baroque paintings at the H?tel Costes in Paris, a pleasant room with hand-hewn beams at the Hotel Bernardi-Semenzato in Venice, or an "atmospheric" room with bondage hooks and a galvanized steel cage at the Black Tulip in Amsterdam? Feeling hungry? You can choose from French haute cuisine, British pub fare, German comfort food, Spanish tapas, Greek specialties, and more.Frommer's Gay & Lesbian Europe also offers the dish on queer sights (do you know where Oscar Wilde died and where he's buried, where there's a Homomonument, where there's a Gay Museum?) , neighborhoods, and beaches, plus all the top attractions. The guide also shows you where to shop for everything from antiques to clubwear to "toys" and sends you to the best venues for the performing arts. And, of course, it gives the lowdown on what to do after dark--bars and cafes, discos, saunas, and more.If all that weren't enough, there are also fun little features like "A Queen's English" (on British gay slang), "The Queer Quiz" (on British gays), and "A Toast for the Boys" (on where to find "toast"--not what you think it is--on your way home from the clubs in Athens).show more
