Paris. The most romantic city in the world, and a city with an amazingly rich cultural history. From the Renaissance to the French Revolution, from the construction of the Eiffel Tower to Mitterrand's grands projets, Paris has borne witness to extraordinary people and events over the centuries. And who better to explore the French capital's cultural past than Sandrine Voillet. Art historian, cultural commentator, Parisian, she's as chic and elegant as the city she adores. In this fascinating and highly original portrait of Paris, Sandrine shares her passion for a city indelibly marked by change and revolution. Travelling through 400 years of cultural history, Sandrine introduces the people and events that have shaped Paris into the breathtaking spectacle we see today. Part travelogue, part cultural history and part inside guide to 'hidden' Paris, Sandrine's Paris is lavishly illustrated with over 100 beautiful images that capture the magic of the City of Lights.
