Books Info:

The Most Beautiful Walk in the World free pdf The most irresistibly witty and revealing tour of Paris in years...In this enchanting memoir, acclaimed author and Paris resident John Baxter recounts his year-long experience of giving "literary walking tours" through the city. Baxter sets off on the trail of Paris's legendary artists and writers. Along the way, he tells the city's history through a brilliant cast of characters: the favourite cafes of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and James Joyce- Pablo Picasso's underground Montmartre haunts- the bustling boulevards of the late-19th century flaneurs- the secluded "Little Luxembourg" gardens beloved by Gertrude Stein- the alleys where revolutionaries plotted- and finally Baxter's own favourite walk near his home in Saint-Germain-des-Pres. Paris, by custom and design, is a pedestrian's city - each block a revelation, every neighbourhood a new feast for the senses, a place rich with history and romance at every turn. The Most Beautiful Walk in the World is your guide par excellence to the true, off-the-beaten-track heart of the City of Lights.
