Frequent travelers to Paris as well as those who are still eager to visit the City of Lights for the first time will enjoy this audio encyclopedia article from iMinds. In this episode, accomplished Australian actress Margot Knight takes listeners on a brief but comprehensive tour of the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank of the Seine. With excellent French pronunciation and a learned delivery, Knight delves into the universities, historical monuments, and intellectual history that make up this storied neighborhood. Peppered with fascinating tidbits like the fact that James Joyce finished writing Ulysses a block away from where Ernest Hemingway finished The Sun Also Rises, this informative tour will definitely put some joie de vivre in a listener's ear.
