Whether you're planning your trip or already there, Frommer's Best of Paris will take you through the top 20 sites, from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre. This tour includes a map to help you get around, and itineraries to put it all together. Pauline Frommer, travel expert and creator of Pauline Frommer's Travel Guides, guides you through the best of the City of Lights.
Elaine Sciolino, the former Paris bureau chief of The New York Times, invites us on a tour of her favorite Parisian street, offering an homage to street life and the pleasures of Parisian living. While many cities suffer from the leveling effects of globalization, the rue des Martyrs maintains its distinct allure. On this street, the patron saint of France was beheaded and the Jesuits took their first vows.
"Not just for Paris lovers."
What is life? What is my place in it? What choices do these questions obligate me to make? More than a half-century after it burst upon the intellectual scene - with roots that extend to the mid-19th century - Existentialism's quest to answer these most fundamental questions of individual responsibility, morality, and personal freedom, life has continued to exert a profound attraction.
"Good for even a non-existentialist"
