There can hardly be another world city that is so glamorous and can boast so many interesting buildings and so many important museums. Paris is a multicultural city, since time immemorial a magnet for intellectuals and artists, as well as a symbol of elegance and joie de vivre.

MARCO POLO Paris leads you through the French capital, a city that has managed to retain its own special flair. This practical pocket-sized guide takes you along its grand boulevards, introduces you to the distinctive atmosphere of each quarter and invites you to explore its world-famous as well as its less well-known museums. Immerse yourself in the Parisian way of life in one of its many street cafés; let the city seduce you.

The Insider Tips reveal an ideal place for a picnic (on an island right in the heart of the city) and where everyone meets up on market day. The Best Of pages highlight what’s especially typical of Paris, recommend places to go for free, have tips for rainy days and where you can relax and unwind. Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you’re on a tight budget and where to pick up some real bargains.

Explore the city and make discoveries along both the left and right banks of the Seine. With the City Walks you can follow in the footsteps of philosophers, writers and artists. In addition, by following the Trips & Tours, you can visit Versailles and the royal city of Saint-Germain-en-Laye. Finally the Dos & Don’ts point out some of the things you need to be aware of and watch out for when visiting the city.

MARCO POLO Paris provides comprehensive coverage of the city. To help you find your way around there’s a detailed street atlas inside, a useful Métro map in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map.
