“Great Walking Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2007

Download iJourneys: Paris the Left Bank from iTunes or audible.com. The walk starts at the Louvre so it is great to start it after you have finished at the Louvre. The walk is 2 hours and takes you through the back streets of the Left Bank and ends at Notre Dame. During the walk, you go past L'Hotel where Oscar Wilde died and said those infamous words, "Either the wallpaper goes or I go." You also go to the market that Picasso frequented, will see the smallest house in Paris (only 2 windows wide), the last actual boneyard in Paris at San Severin church, the Shakespseare and Co. bookshop (all English), go to Procope was the restauarant to serve the first cup of coffee and is on a small back alley, Cafe Deux Magots, and many other attractions. iJourneys is incredible and makes a guide for just about everywhere. It's also handy because you can put it right on your iPod or MP3 player.
