Summary

Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities.
We start with the Louvre and reveal what one of its most famous residents brought with her from Florence that has since become synonymous with France. We'll tell you where the Tuileries Gardens get their name from.
Then we'll take you to the official centre of France and explain exactly what the beautiful but sometimes mysterious carvings on the cathedral of Notre Dame mean as you look up at them. We'll take you to the most beautiful church in Paris - and show you the dungeons nearby, where over 3,000 people waited to be guillotined during the Revolution.
Walk with us through the Left Bank and discover the Pantheon and the Boulevard Saint Germain. We'll show you one of the best food markets in Paris and explain why the great short-story writer Guy de Maupassant had lunch at the top of the Eiffel tower every day.We finish our tour at the Arc de Triomphe and show how it fits into a striking pattern of great arches, new and old, across this elegant city.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
