Paris Architecture - tours or guides you can recommend?

Jump to last reply

Since Kerouac Parisian Tours does not exist (at least not yet, but one can dream), we are looking for a recommendation on a guide or tour that would give us more information on the many different types of architecture in Paris. I remember reading a book a few years ago that pointed out a few buildings that escaped Hausmann's "renovation" and that would be of interest.

We don't know much about architecture and I couldn't tell you the difference between gothic and Romanesque. We would certainly like to learn and understand a bit more about the many different types of architecture seen throughout Paris. After 5-6 visits to Paris, we are looking to dig in and learn more about what we are seeing.

My husband (Mr Starbucks, as some of you may know him) took an architectural tour in Chicago that he really enjoyed and we thought Paris would be a great place to do something similar (even if it is not on the Seine).

I think Context offers something...anyone have experience with them? Michael Osman? We don't mind a small group but not into a large tour group.

Ideas and suggestions welcome and any architectural "gems" that you know and love and are willing to share, will be most appreciated!
