Description

This lush travel guide, filled with breathtaking photos, celebrates the eternal City of Light: Paris.

What do you think of when you think of Paris? The Eiffel Tower? Notre Dame? The Champs Elys es? Or the Montmartre of Toulouse- Lautrec? In 150 striking images, Paris rejoices in the charm of the French capital, from its world-famous landmarks to evocative alleyways and corners that might surprise you. Discover treasures like La Petite Ceinture, a disused nineteenth-century railway line that circumnavigates the inner city, the medieval marvels of Sainte-Chapelle, the modernist Pompidou Centre, the pop-up beaches beside the Seine, and more.
