Introducing Lonely Planet's brand new Not for Parents
This is not a guidebook. And it is definitely 'not-for-parents'. It is the real, inside story about one of the world's most famous cities - Paris. In this book you'll hear fascinating tales about creepy stone gargoyles, ghostly railway stations, huge castles and amazingly pampered pets. Check out cool stories about stuffed animals, caves filled with bones and the deadly guillotine. You'll find cyclists, junk collectors and musicians, and snails on the menu for dinner.
- Where can you pretend you're at the beach in the middle of the city?

- Who had her own life-size village built just to play in?
