Visiting Paris by district might at first seem a little daunting, but rest assured it's far easier than you might think. In our previous blog we explained how Paris is divided into twenty arrondissements and how they are arranged. Today we will let you know all about a practical guide for discovering the city district by district. Paris For You 2013-2014 is issued by the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau and is available free of charge from all Paris tourist information points. The Hotel de la Herse d'Or warmly recommend this information packed guide book detailing several delightful walking tours you can take in Paris to get to know the city intimately.
Visiting Paris by district; an indispensable guide
Paris For You 2013-2014 runs to well over a hundred glossy, full colour pages. If you've ever wondered about how best to get around Paris according to your own interests, then this is the guide book for you. Thirteen walks are described, each of which encompasses a different sphere of interest. For example, the first walk follows the banks of the Seine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site filled with some of the world's most iconic locations. Another takes you to the 2,000 year old heart of Paris; the Ile de la Cite and Notre Dame Cathedral, the Ile Saint Louis and the Latin Quarter.
But perhaps you would be more interested in Trendy Paris, Undiscovered Paris or Monumental Paris. Whatever you seek in the City of Light, you will find a walk to cater to your interests. The guide book points out and gives information regarding the places of interest and exciting things to do along your chosen route. There's also useful tips and addresses, a public transport map and a complete index for easy reference. Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Champs Elysees, Montmartre... all are yours to discover.
