    Book details

This comprehensive guide covers all major places of interest, with numerous essays on history and culture. With town plans and over 600 illustrations. Paris is one of the most exciting capitals in Europe - a Mecca for artists, a centre for intellectuals and academics, and a stage for the flaneur. This volume acts as a companion to the metropolis on the Seine through its eventful history and the buzz of the present day, from the Lutetia of antiquity through the era of the great kings and revolutions to the 21st century with its stunning architectural projects. There are plenty of digressions along the way, providing insights into the city's historical turning points, telling the stories of its most famous residents and illuminating the background to the "City of Light".

    I love Paris and I love art and i wanted to read a book that could inform me about the two and this book is perfect.I brought it thinking it would be just a book to read for pleasure but it is a very useful guide for art lovers as tourists in the city!!It includes a road map of the city towards the front and throughout the book it gives a map of each area within the city and higlights its main points of interest and then follows this up with information about each place.This book would be perfect for anyone visiting the city who is interested in art, I would read it befor the trip and then take it with you to help guide you around the city.
