The Michelin Travel Guide Collection

Since Michelin first published guides in 1901, our collection has concentrated on helping travellers find the most beautiful natural sites, providing comprehensive background information and great restaurants and hotels. The guides feature the most interesting family days out and themed driving tours from one to several days, together with numerous itinerary ideas. Year after year, this information has been updated, improved, modified and checked.

More than 100 years after the first guide was published, Michelin’s goal remains the same: using its specialist knowledge to bring readers a selection of the region's most beautiful sites with star-ratings, with accurate town and site plans and suggestions for driving tours, weekends away, short-breaks, places to stay and restaurants. Michelin’s Travel Guide Collections are an ideal companion for cultural travellers, widening horizons, opening up new possibilities and helping to create wonderful memories.
