It's the City of Light, the capital of romance, the cultural center of the Western world: that's beautiful Paris, a metropolis of intellect, sensuality, and historical legacy. Every one of the more than 100 magnificent images in this homage captures Paris's irresistible vitality and loveliness; the flowing, lyrical text provides a dynamic view of an equally vibrant city. Step onto the Pont Alexandre III, one of the ornate bridges over the Seine, built in 1896 and restored to its original, glittering splendor. Take a walk through the Place des Vosges, one of the most charming squares in Europe. See the soaring white Byzantine domes of the Sacré Coeur, visible from almost anywhere in the city. The fountains, the pictures painted on walls, the lit-up buildings, the beckoning cafés: it's an unforgettable visual tour.
