Paris, by custom and design, is a pedestrian's city - each block a revelation, every neighbourhood a new feast for the senses, a place rich with history and romance at every turn. The Most Beautiful Walk in the World is your guide par excellence to the true, off-the-beaten-track heart of the City of Lights.
"A lovely book, full of unexpected pleasures... Parisians claim that walking around Paris is an art form in itself, and Baxter proves them right." Chicago Tribune "The Most Beautiful Walk in the World is as close as a reader can get to the feel of a languid spring walk along Baron Haussmann's boulevards." Los Angeles Times "Anyone who loves Paris and loves to walk will feel this book was written just for them... Charming." USA Today "A splendid memoir... Reading The Most Beautiful Walk in the World is the next best thing to a Paris vacation." Boston Globe "Fabulous - the perfect companion for anyone inspired to hop over to France after seeing Midnight in Paris" NPR.org
