Do you know how the Mona Lisa ended up in the Louvre? Or how many heads were chopped off on the spot now occupied by the Place de la Concorde? Or that the last Gallic warriors massacred by the Romans are buried beneath the Eiffel Tower? Or how a 17th-century traffic jam led to the murder of France's King Henri IV? Using twenty-one stops of the Paris Metro as its starting points - from La Cite to La Defense - METRO-LAND describes the events and the people that have shaped the world's most romantic city. Devoting a chapter to each century of the Parisian past, and crammed with the sort of anecdotes that make history really entertaining and accessible, METRO-LAND is an intriguing, affectionate and richly informative guide to the history both of an iconic European city and of France itself.
