Written by three American authors and guides living in Paris, the app walks you through the heart of the Revolution-era Left Bank.
The world’s oldest, most resilient international friendship was born on these sites, where Thomas Jefferson gathered the seeds of the Library of Congress, John Adams made peace with England and Ben Franklin hugged Voltaire. From the statue of Jefferson, by the mansion that inspired Monticello, to the Luxembourg Palace, where Thomas Paine was imprisoned, weaving in stories of figures such as John Paul Jones and Lafayette, the tour evokes the events that contributed to American independence, and the American and French people who made them happen.
Reading: Rebecca Brite

Pam Grant, who move to France in 1990, was one of the few Americans to have passed the competitive French tour-guide exam.
