Capital city, subject of legends and myths, Paris also has its own special atmosphere. It is undoubtedly among the most beautiful of all cities thanks to its many celebrated monuments and buildings - the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and indeed the Sacré Coeur. Author Véronique Laflèche traces the historical development of Paris before taking us on a trip through the streets and the different areas of this unique city. Halting every now and then to provide us with details on the history of different buildings, famous and not so famous, she makes us aware of the throbbing pulse of Paris life, enabling us particularly to relish its little finesses - to drink mint tea on the patio of the mosque, perhaps, or to amble casually along the paths of the Jardin du Luxembourg. A return ticket between the past and the present, this book is concerned above all to describe the city as it is today - in a process of constant change, of constant renewal.
Following university, Véronique Laflèche worked in the world of fashion and advertising. She has already written a book on Venice, for Parkstone Press. Paris, the city where she lives, is another place that holds a special place in her heart.
