"Paris, in many people's thoughts, is the epitome of the perfect city: beautiful, romantic, and imbued with vitality and culture. It is a wonderful place to visit and to live." Packed with fact, anecdote, and insight, A Traveller's History of Paris offers a complete history of Paris and the people who have shaped its destiny, from its earliest settlement as the Roman village of Lutetia Parisiorum with a few hundred inhabitants, to 20 centuries later when Paris is a city of well over 2 million -- nearly one-fifth of the population of France.

Illustrated with line drawings and historical maps, this is an invaluable book for all visitors to read and enjoy. Book jacket.
