This pleasantly meandering collection of Parisian miscellany is almost as delightful as a stroll through its cobble-stoned streets! Wander through the pages to find a guide to the city's equestrian statues; the location of the oldest tree in Paris; famous poetic odes to the metropolis; a history of Parisian roofs; and so many interesting lists (of Paris's indoor markets, fictional streets, vineyards, art-house theaters, most popular baby names - just to name a few). This "petite encyclopedia of indispensable and superfluous information
