In this revised and updated edition of their quintessential Parisian guide, Alison and Sonia 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. Each walk is easily completed in a morning or afternoon and suggests shopping, dining, and cultural stops. Featuring maps, over forty black-and-white photographs, and a select list of quaint restaurants and hotels, Pariswalks is the essential companion to the hidden wonders of the City of Light.
