Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This edition of "Walking Paris", revised and updated ready for 2008, is a fascinating guide to the highways and byways of one of the world's most intriguing and romantic capital cities. Thirty meticulously planned, original walks, designed to be taken at an easy pace and allowing ample time for personal exploration, reveal Paris in all its many guises. Each walk, accompanied by a detailed route map, offers a tour of discovery: following bustling boulevards and narrow mysterious alleyways; passing well-known landmarks and places steeped in history and culture; winding along the banks of the Seine and through parks and palace gardens; and, exploring markets, squares and hidden stairways.Written by Gilles Desmons, a native Parisian who has spent many years getting to know the city by walking and absorbing its every detail, this book is the perfect introduction for the first-time visitor and a rich source of fresh delights for those already aware of the endless fascination of Paris.
