Meet outside the Hotel du Louvre, where you'll be catapulted back to the time of Balzac and Voltaire. From here it's on to le de la Cite, where big names such as Anatole France found many of their inspirations. You'll continue over to the Rive Gauche, the intellectual nerve center of Paris and the stomping grounds of Lost Generation personalities like Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. After visiting Oscar Wilde's place of death, you'll pass by the Beat Hotel,the famous hangout of Beat Generation writers such as William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg. Continuing on to the Odeon area you'll see the address where Sylvia Beach founded a legendary bookstore and artistic paradise called Shakespeare and Company. This shop no longer exists, but the spirit of its regular customers like James Joyce, Paul Valery, and Andre Gide still lingers in this cozy cave of literature. Next will be the current Shakespeare and Company location. In this former medieval monastery, English-language books inhabit every nook and cranny. Your guide will recount the extraordinary history of this establishment and take you upstairs to discover its charming literary atmosphere. On your way out of the shop you'll plunge into the worlds of Baudelaire and Flaubert as you follow the meandering streets to the Hotel de Lauzun on the le St. Louis. It's inside this sumptuous structure where Baudelaire was moved to write L'Invitation au Voyage. Redeem informationVoucher type: PrintedPrinted Voucher.
