Eccentric France: The Bradt Guide to Mad, Magical and Marvellous France
Bradt Travel Guides, 2003 - 294 من الصفحات
Want to visit the Garlic and Livestock Festival in Provence? See a homemade full-scale reproduction of the Sistine Chapel in Normandy? Follow the Truffle Trail in Prigord? Or just find out about the fascinating, madcap, and sometimes tragic lives of the hundreds of real eccentrics who have made their mark in France?
Eccentric France brings travelers all this and much, much more--on and off the beaten track. Between the covers of Eccentric France readers will discover entire museums dedicated to eccentricities such as Camembert cheese and corkscrews, and fairs celebrating the virtues of edible snails and absinthe. The Montgolfier brothers, Nostradamus, and Marie Antoinette all rub shoulders here, along with some American exports such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemmingway, and Henry James. Bizarre buildings, outrageous artists, ridiculous royalty, impossible inventions, and peculiar people populate France; this guide tells travelers what to visit, when to go, and who they can meet. It's also a great book for the armchair visitors or for those planning their next trip to La Belle France.
