Beautiful book about a beautiful city,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Most Beautiful Walk in the World: A Pedestrian in Paris (Paperback)Rather than a guidebook, this is a memoir of walking in Paris and if - like me - you love simply wandering in the City of Light, this will conjure up wonderful memories. Many times I found myself longing to be sitting outside one of the cafes he describes with coffee and a pain au chocolat.
John Baxter leads guided walks for tourists in Paris and draws on his experiences to evoke not only the spirit of the great literary figures of Paris (Hemingway, Fitzgerald etc) but also the places they frequented. Rather than a story as such, each chapter describes a different period in the history of Paris, or a different quartier. Some places are familiar, but there are many that I will seek out next time I'm there.
A beautiful book about a beautiful city.
