Europe on 5 Dollars a Day by Arthur FrommerIn 1957, Arthur Frommer published a slim travel guide that showed Americans how to travel to Europe without breaking the bank. Europe on 5 Dollars a Day revolutionized the way Americans traveled - no longer did they have to be rich to eat a croissant from a Parisian bakery or take in the masterpieces at the Uffizi Gallery. To celebrate this remarkable achievement, Frommers has issued a limited edition reproduction of Europe on 5 Dollars a Day. Inside you will find the original text exactly as it was published by Arthur Frommer 50 years ago, as well as a current-day interview with Arthur Frommer on the past and future of travel.
