En overskuelig byvandring med en vidende og munter guide. Vi er familie med to børn, 9 og 17, og guiden gjorde virkeligt umage med at gøre dem begge og os voksne interesserede. Indblik i byens historie krydret med anekdoter. Kan anbefales, især hvis server en af dine første ture til Paris. Tag den helst i starten af dit ophold.
