Synopsis

Many of the great cemeteries of Paris are like outdoor museums. They harbor extraordinary statuary, arresting images of individuals both famous and obscure. This book takes the reader on 19 walking tours in Paris, each filled with its own unique surprises. Pere Lachaise, Montmartre, Montparnasse, the Catacombs, Les Invalides, the Pantheon, as well as several lesser known but perhaps equally rewarding sites are covered. Ten original maps guide the traveler to the many notables. The lives of more than 60 permanent Parisians are chronicled in short, lively biographies. Over 200 black and white photographs.
