A Walk through Paris  

Armchair travelers, fasten your seat belts! We’re about to “walk” through Paris and (re)discover this exceptional city steeped in history, architecture, war, and romance. We’ll “visit” various Parisian neighborhoods, review the making of modern Paris, observe the city from above and below, remember the painful years of the Nazi occupation, delight in the incredible greenery and offbeat areas of Paris, and take hour-long day trips from the capital. We’ll learn some essential French phrases and vocabulary and revel in the magnificent architecture the city offers, while hearing accordion music in the background to accompany the slides and photos of Paris. While being there in person would be ideal, this is the next best thing!
