The most beautiful walk in the world

In this enchanting memoir, acclaimed author and Paris resident John Baxter recounts his year-long experience of giving literary walking tours through the city. Along the way, he tells the history of Paris through a brilliant cast of characters and their favourite haunts: the cafes of Hemingway, Scott Fitzgerald, and James Joyce; Picasso’s underground Montmartre dives; the bustling boulevards of the late 19th century flaneurs; the secluded Little Luxembourg gardens beloved by Gertrude Stein; and finally Baxter’s own favourite walk near his home in Saint-Germain-des-Pres.

Paris, by both custom and design, is a pedestrian’s city – each block a revelation, every neighbourhood a new feast for the senses, a place rich with history and romance at every turn. The Most Beautiful Walk in the World is your guide par excellence to the true heart of the City of Lights.
