Two books follow `Da Vinci Code' trail and cities

First it was a best-selling novel. Then came a movie deal (starring Tom Hanks, with a May 19 release date). Now The Da Vinci Code is a guidebook. (The release just happened to coincide with the final days of the London trial of author Dan Brown and his publisher Random House on copyright infringement. They were exonerated.)

The 256-page Fodor's Guide to The DaVinci Code ($14.95) takes the traveler from Paris to Rome to London, and points beyond. It also includes a 12-day itinerary, following the trail in Brown's thriller. Included are hotel, restaurant and shopping suggestions -- all with a Code connection.

Also out now is The Da Vinci Code Travel Journal (Clarkson Potter, $12.95). The journal features passages from the blockbuster book, photos, paintings and maps and an itinerary based on the locations traveled by the book's characters, Robert Langdon and Sophie Neveu.
