A city that thrives on a love of grace, beauty and fine living, Paris continues to evolve into one of Europe's finest and most modern cities, even as it retains its remarkable history and ancient charms. The 9th Edition of ACCESS Paris promises a wealth of information as it guides travellers down the streets and into the heart of the city of lights.
Henry James wrote: "Paris is the greatest temple ever built to material joys and the lust of the eyes." The city of lights exudes such richness and variety that elevates even the necessities of life to the level of high art. The streets of Paris are museums lined with splendid architecture and historic monuments, making even the simple act of walking through the city one of life's great pleasures.
This luxury is greatly enhanced when one is armed with ACCESS Paris. Comprehensive, fully updated and filled with revised maps, sidebars and points of interest – ACCESS Paris's 9th Edition brings to life this city's love of grace, beauty and fine living, and allows the traveller to truly discover and know this artistic and cultural capital of a unified Europe..
