Paris – city of love, food, culture – is steeped in a rich history known the world over.


From the creative minds of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, who both frequented the world-famous Moulin Rouge at the turn of the twentieth century, to the many historic changes that saw Paris expand into the city of twenty arrondissements that residents and tourists flock to every year.

In A Brief History of Paris, historian Cecil Black entertainingly details the stories behind the culture, locations, architecture, people, food and more that keeps visitors enchanted, whether that is by ascending the Eiffel Tower or wending your way through the city’s underground catacombs.


C’est la vie.
