The complete Mona Lisa kidnapping story

Paris through the Ages (by Arthur Gillette)
(Off beaten path: A MUST

An adventure!!!

Michel Dansell formulated this very well in his "Paris Unattended."

"To love Paris is not explainable with a guidebook that leads you through the city. To say: "Paris je t'aime" doesn't mean anything, since all reasons are good — and none is frankly the issue! To love Paris, it's more than you can explain, it's in yourself! There is the Paris of the ice-cream-eaters, organized tours, history professors, and those damn guide publishers always keen to explain the slightest column or gargoyle, the smallest portal, the straight boulevards of Haussman, the age of Notre-Dame, and a whole lot you'll find in any guide...
I will try to explain Paris differently; I'll take you by the hand and tell you some anecdotes between the historical and descriptive sites. I'll enhance it from time to time by pictures—as long as they don't take up too much space ;-).
