Synopsis

An outstanding gift or souvenir, Spectacular Paris celebrates all that shines in the wonderful City of Light. Ernest Hemingway's book on Paris, A Moveable Feast, aptly titles its last chapter There Is Never Any End to Paris. Those few words sum up the unending beauty, lure, culture, and magnificence of this unique city. Paris is home to some of the world's greatest landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Cathedral of Notre-Dame, and the Pantheon. In an outstanding celebration and photographic portrait, Spectacular Paris brings the best of this awe-inspiring city into sharp focus. The Paris we know today is the product of more than 2,000 years of history, with echoes of many of its first century B.C.E. Roman roads and language still found today. Layers of architectural history and culture are laid upon each other, revealing magnificently decorated buildings of royal, religious, and secular purpose at every turn and corner. There is hardly anywhere to travel in Paris where you are not confronted with beauty and decor.

Today, ancient, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and modern architecture meld together in a city laid out upon both banks of the River Seine and the two petite islands that lie between them.
