    See the French Revolution come alive through a walking tour of the Latin Quarter

    The Harvard and Yale Clubs of France invite you to join Brad Newfield, a French-American guide for Paris Walks. Discover the oldest café in Paris, the site of Marat's grisly death in his bathtub, the Cordelier Club where Danton and the radicals held their heated debates and the site where the first guillotine was built. Hear the stories of the fortune teller who dared tell Robespierre his fate, of the sans-culotte leader who chased Marie-Antoinette and of the man who led the storming of the Bastille. Visit the Luxembourg Gardens, the Odeon Theatre, the Roman Baths and the Cluny Museum. Stroll through the narrowest street in Paris and the site where Gavroche mounted the barricades in Les Misérables.

    Brad Newfield, a former Angelino who has lived in Paris since 1994, has a Ph.D in History from UCLA, lectured in History and Communication Studies, and develops walking tours on historical themes in Paris, in order to bring together the city's past and present in untraditional ways.
