Along the way, he tells the history of Paris through a brilliant cast of characters: the favorite cafes of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and James Joyce; Pablo Picasso's underground Montmartre haunts; the bustling boulevards of the late-19th-century flâneurs; the secluded "Little Luxembourg" gardens beloved by Gertrude Stein; the alleys where revolutionaries plotted; and finally Baxter's own favorite walk near his home in Saint-Germain-des-Pres.
Paris, by custom and design, is a pedestrian's city - each block a revelation, every neighborhood 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, off-the-beaten-path heart of the City of Lights.

puts me to sleep, not in a good way
While this book has some interesting anecdotes, it gets tiresome because there are thousands of them, and they are given quickly. The book becomes a blur and there doesn't seem to be a connecting story line, at least not one that you can follow. Perhaps it is enjoyable if you only listen to a couple chapters at a time, but I like listening to books end to end. The author talks about his wife and how they live in a place full of famous people, but I'm not sure he actually knows the famous people. It seems like he spied on them from afar rather than interacted with them. I'll be returning this book.
