At the risk of doing a 'Me too' - this is more or less what I think too. We
get some travel guides in the library, and one of the most popular series is
the 'Rough guide to ...' (Paris, London, Tuscany, etc.) which gives you the
best places to stay and eat, art galleries and museums and significant sites
etc. to visit. These sort of guides usually have a little box on just about
every page with their 'Top pick,' ie. the very best of their selection.
