By the author of Pilgrimage to Paris.
There's more to see and experience in Paris than just the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, and the Louvre.
In the second book of the Cheapo Snob series, Paris and Parisians guides visitors to remarkable must-see sites in the City of Light including Opéra Garnier, the Panthéon, the homes of Balzac and Victor Hugo, plus l’Église Saint-Sulpice, which figures prominently in Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, the longtime royal residence at Fontainebleau southeast of the city, and several unique museums.
In addition, this guidebook uncovers authentic French culture by revealing short biographies and addresses of scores of diverse and extraordinary one-time French residents from actors including Sarah Bernhardt and Brigitte Bardot to authors Sartre, Camus, Colette, Flaubert, and Zola, to name just a few, plus artists like Monet and Renoir, fashion designers such as Chanel, Giverny, and Saint-Laurent, not to mention architects, chefs, directors, sculptors, and many more.
