Audible Editor Reviews

The perfect length for travelers, this is a relatively short but still in-depth guide to one of the most fascinating sites in Paris. In smooth and dignified tones, performer Margot Knight leads listeners through the history of the site at the summit of Montmartre, from the days of the Romans and Saint Denis, to the Franco-Prussian war, Paris Commune, and the construction of the famous basilica that tourists see today. Full of intriguing facts and stories, this would make for an excellent introduction to this beautiful site in preparation for a visit.

    "Sacre Coeur - fine help for tourist review or prep"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sacre Coeur to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is wonderful because if one is planning to visit, there is plenty to do and so it saves a lot of time listening to general information and history on the topic...you'll see it when you get there, and you can Google spellings that confuse, so YES better than print.
