Four jaw-dropping Paris stories you’ve not heard before

Hi guys,

It’s quite the episode today – we’ve got Stefanie Kouatchet from the city hunt group Paris in Action revealing some of her favourite stories about Paris.

Each of these places are linked to a place in Paris you may have walked past without ever knowing the stories behind them.

Listen here:

Featuring:

The ‘Spiderman’ who stole five paintings from the Museum of Modern Art

And the palace that burned down in the very middle of Paris (also pictured at very top)

Plus loads of other chit chat including the mysterious Cow Island in Paris, how to learn French at lightning speed, and a fake facade near Gare du Nord.

And remember, one lucky Patreon supporter will win a free city hunt from Paris in Action. Winner announced in next week’s episode.
