Pariswalks, Sixth Edition

Holt Paperbacks

The perfect walking guide to Paris and its history, now in a thoroughly updated sixth edition

Full of architectural detail, unique advice, and historical anecdotes, Pariswalks allows the reader to do as the Parisians do-take to the streets on foot to discover the secret splendors of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Sonia, Alison, and Rebecca Landes lead the reader through the maze of Paris's hidden back streets and into the tiny shops, secluded courtyards, underground cellars, and serene interiors that tourists rarely see.

In this newly revised edition, readers will find completely updated walks covering the most interesting neighborhoods of central Paris, from the Place de la Bastille to the Boulevard St.-Germain, and an all new tour of the Place de la Concorde. Each walk is easily completed in a morning or afternoon and suggests shopping, dining, and cultural stops.

Featuring maps, more than forty black-and-white photographs, and a select list of restaurants and hotels, Pariswalks is the essential companion to the hidden wonders of the City of Lights.
