Each title in the Orient Express Travel Series is designed to express the elegance, the art, the culture and "insider knowledge" of the old and the new for each exceptional city destination and to provide a lasting keepsake of a memorable visit. Paris Revisited is an elegant photographic guide that takes the reader on an exquisite tour through the lifestyles of Paris: horse-racing at Longchamps, taking a relaxing stroll along the Seine, shopping in an exclusive boutique or dining in style at a little-known restaurant. The glorious, specially commissioned photography offers unusual and familiar images to inspire and treasure. This visual feast is accompanied by a narrative on the city that offers nuggets of insider knowledge, which often can't be found in other city books - that special place to eat; where to find the best and most exclusive shopping and entertainment; which museums are a must; or where to find special courses on painting, antiques, or cooking. Special features include quotes from celebrities, artists, writers, poets and musicians who are associated with the city, their favourite haunts and their contributions to art and culture.
