Good guide for a walking tour..
Having been to Paris I was aware that the city is largely that of the Second Empire ( 1852-1870) and the author gives a good account of Baron Haussman and Napoleon III's collaboration in the creation of the Paris we largely see today.Was this review helpful?

I would be happy to go back using this book as a guide.
Recommended but: as is too often the case today, various errors of facts and nomenclature are annoying. E.g. there was NO "Italian Republic" in the 1860's. Italy was a Kingdom intil 1946. Napoleon's title was NOT "emperor of France" but "Emperor of the French". Google anyone?
