We are delighted to have some excellent Paris travel books to give away in our latest competition. These are An Hour From Paris by Annabel Simms, and Parisians’ Paris by Bill Gillham. We have two copies of each to give away, so that is four prizes all together!
An Hour from Paris is a small classic: written with passion, perfectionism and amusement, a guide that will make you see a Paris – and a France – you would never have suspected. Now fully updated with extra walks.
A strength is that it focuses on relatively unknown places that you can reach by a local train ride from the centre of the capital – probably just as unknown to many Parisians.
Parisians’ Paris is a guide that will help you experience Paris like a true Parisian.
Bill Gillham has been visiting Paris for decades, immersing himself in a particular quartier of Paris, discovering its little shops and bistrots, its markets, parks, and local entertainments, all the little quirks and particularities of its day to day life. In this guide, he takes you to seventeen of his favourite areas of Paris – some central, some suburban, mostly just off the beaten track – and shows you how to discover the real city. Neglected, or completely ignored by ordinary guidebooks, these quartiers all have a purely individual, Parisian character.
