While taking up space at the Victor Hugo Cafe in the Place des Vosges square, I came up with an idea for a mini-guidebook series about Paris. Yes, I realize there are probably more guidebooks available on Paris than the number of people that live in my hometown, but I think there is always room for a unique perspective.
When I think about visiting sights in Paris, I think of the metro. It is a convenient, mostly reliable, and affordable way to get around the city. I noticed while planning my itinerary I searched for sights near a specific metro. What if there was a guidebook that gave you the top 10 metro stops with the best sights within a kilometer from the station? Sure there are books broken down by arrondissements, but they can be very large. This would make the best use of your time and metro tickets.
So each Sunday I will be featuring a post about a metro stop with a list of places to see. Perhaps I can turn this into an ebook once I have it all compiled and properly edited…
1. Saint Paul
10. Place Monge
