About the Book
Like a slice of a photo, a moment is a slice of time, whispered as a record of an experience.
Paris: Extraordinary Moments is a book with a collection of experiences, some exciting, some unexpected, some poignant, some funny, some exhilarating.
Become inspired by a renowned violinist, whose breathtaking sounds mingle with the spectacular, luminous colors of thousands of glowing stained glass windows. Marvel at the huge pieces of the thirteenth century defensive wall of Paris that sit today in the middle of a sidewalk, in a car park and a chocolate house.

Discover medieval stonework so elegant that it looks like white lace, frozen in stone and held up by sculpted angels’ wings; it is a jubé, the last surviving one in Paris. Be astonished by a tree that has slipped through the fingers of time and endured for eight centuries.
Read about the new bells for the 850-year-old Cathedral of Notre Dame. Discover the “travel angel” who saved us on a mountaintop during an electrical thunderstorm. Giggle at the café customers contentedly eating rain-drenched food.
