In this second look at the city of light, love and culture Globe Trekkers Adela Ucar and Justine Shapiro spend a week enjoying the museums, romance, food and entertainment of Paris. With two very different perspectives on the city, Paris City Guide 2 shows the range of experience a trip to Paris can offer. Adela's adventure begins with a motorcycle taxi to her hotel in Montmartre and a stroll around the art filled neighborhood. Justine's begins with a visit to the Luxembourg Gardens and a ride on the best local/sightseeing bus in the world. The next day Adela visits the Musee D'Orsay to learn about the paintings of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, while Justine finds some art of her own in a local street performance. As no visit to Paris would be complete without a little shopping, Adela visits one of the city's most unique stores, Deyrolle, famous for its one of a kind taxidermy. Justine visits a street market in the African quarter with equally exotic goods on offer. As for fashion, Adela is lucky enough to visit with renowned British designer Vivenne Westwood backstage during Paris Fashion Week. The last part of her trip is dedicated to another famous fashionista, Marie Antoinette. First, she visits the stunning Palace of Versailles taking in Le Petit Hameau, the queen's peasant village and then with a guide she revisits Marie Antoinette's journey to the guillotine, from La Conciergerie to the Place de la Concorde. With the week drawing to an end, both Justine and Adela have one thing they just have to see before going home. For Adela it is the iconic Eiffel Tower and for Justine it is the somewhat smaller but just as iconic Mona Lisa.
