Paris has been called the city of light and the city of love, but it’s also a city of history, of art, of cuisine, of fashion, and of parks. The literary selections in this mini-anthology explore all of these facets of Paris, both from the perspectives of the city’s residents and the perspectives of its many tourists. The long featured article, “Getting to Know Paris,” provides more information about the places mentioned in the reader’s literary selections, while the accompanying activities help learners to experience Parisian culture at home.
