How to learn about Paris while in Paris

Jump to last reply

I'm just curious actually, as I don't have an actual trip planned this year.

I've lived in Paris briefly and have visited it many times over the years. But I always enjoyed the city, the vibrancy, the colors, etc, and wasn't interested in leanring the history or the architecture.

I think I want to do that on my next trip. I'd like to take walks and learn in-depth about the architecture and history of various corners and streets of the city. I would like to do the Michelin Green Guide walks -- but don't really want to have my head stuck in a book as I meander down the streets.

So, how do you do it?

I looked for apps, but then my head would be stuck in my tablet computer, which isn't that much better than a book. I found some Paris walks "cards" but didn't buy them.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
