Impressionist Paris: Walking Tour 2:

Latin Quarter to the Marais

-via Notre Dame-


Terrific Tour 

I haven’t been back to Paris since May ’68 but this tour transported me to my favorite spots along the Seine. The comparison of the paintings with contemporary photos is brilliant, a must for any lover of Paris or art, which is just about everybody, isn’t it?

Elegant and Intuitive 

...this represents the best possible iPhone app: an experience that once required maps, a compass, and an art history textbook becomes a pleasant stroll without the burden or inconvenience...

Offline map = thumbs up 

Really appreciate the offline map. Such a nice feature while abroad. Less money to the phone company and more money on baguettes!
