Description
Did you know that the last Gallic warriors massacred by the Romans lie beneath the Eiffel Tower, or that the remains of Paris's first cathedral are under a parking lot in the Fifth Arrondissement? In his irresistibly lively bookŚenormously popular in France, and with good reasonŚactor and comedian LorÓnt Deutsch stops at 21 MÚtro subway stations to give us a century-by-century history of Paris from its foundations. In anecdotes and illustrations Deutsch candidly reveals a unique, often violent, always striking series of events shaping one of the world's most romanticized cities. Here are incredible historical treasures hidden in plain sight and forgotten nooks and crannies where something still remains of what used to be there in this often-rebuilt city.

"A delightful read, and one that has opened the history of Paris to thousands of people who would never ordinarily open a history book."ŚStephane Kirkland
