Visit Paris with Poetry

You'll need to be a French speaker to get the most from this link, but even a starter French student might enjoy this. See the place in the background while a poem that speaks about the place is read to you.  Places covered include major Parisian spots like the Eiffel Tower, the Paris Metro (corresponding poem here is also a hilarious spoof on the Lord's Prayer), the Seine River, the Pont Nef (the old bridge, called the new bridge), Notre Dame Cathedral, and Montparnasse (the neighborhood of artists and writers).

Thanks to France Culture for this excellent idea!
