While browsing the New Nonfiction shelves I came across a book by Graham Robb, Parisians: An Adventure History of Paris.

While on the subject I decided to look at a few travel films. A lot of Paris videos have been made and most are so-so. I've found a couple of good ones.

Finally I concluded my research with a visit to the official Paris web page which has great links to everything Parisian.
