Hemingway's Haunts in Paris - Private Walking Tour

Hemingway's Haunts in Paris - Private Walking Tour

star-5

Hemingway spent his formative years in Paris. Surrounded by fellow authors such as James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound & F. Scott Fitzgerald, he transitioned from struggling journalist to seasoned novelist. These men & women were known as the "Lost Generation", many of whom had suffered through the horrors of WW1. They flocked to Paris not only for artistic inspiration but also to find themselves. This tour will take you to the places that Hemingway frequented, where he lived, worked & partied. Along the way I share documented research on his life & exploits, archival photos of Hemingway in Paris, and excerpts of his work. From his first trip to Europe as a volunteer Ambulance Driver in WW1, to his final journey embedded with the American troops liberating France in WW2, I will share Hemingway's experiences in Paris, his lives, his loves, his work. We will visit his favorite bars and perhaps share a drink - you can even type a note on the typewriter he left in the Ritz Hotel.
