Paris is the gateway to France’s well preserved past. The Paris metro or the high –speed TGV can take time travelers to historic sites in just a few hours. Caro describes 25 outings that span 700 years of French history. Arranged chronologically, she visits everywhere from the Place de la Concorde, the Pantheon, and Saint-Denis in Paris, to Versailles, Chartres, Rouen, and Blois in the region. Filled with historical tidbits, this is a very enjoyable, well researched read for Francophiles and armchair travelers.
