I would recommend any Naxos videos.

The Visions series is an excellent example of how a series like this should be integrated, with video, music and narration flowing naturally.

I have chosen to review A Musical Tour of Paris first because it has some beautiful night video of Paris and the surrounding area. When I got my blu-ray player I realized that the entire musical journey series was released in 1080HD and has outstanding sound. If you play them on a regular DVD player you won't see them in HD. This is an interesting choice by Naxos, since they were all released in a 4:3 aspect ratio. If you have a 16:9 monitor, you should watch them in the original aspect ratio or the picture will be distorted. You can still get a beautiful picture in 4:3, but not as satisfying as a picture that fills the whole screen.
Naxos has made some other interesting choices. The menu system is crude, to say the least. Paris has music from 14 composers on this DVD from Wagner to Satie. If you know your classical composers, it's pretty easy to identify those two, but some of the others are problematical. A brief list of the locales appears before each chapter, but the compositions being played are not identified. Paris could be turned into a quiz show to guess which of the 14 compositions are being played at any given moment. You could read detailed information for each chapter before viewing the program, but unless you have a photographic memory, you will forget what you have read when you get to each chapter. This series reminds me of the old CD-ROMs which were packed with information that was difficult to access.
The Visions series is an excellent example of how a series like this should be integrated, with video, music and narration flowing naturally.
I have not been to Paris, but much is so familiar that you are unlikely to confuse the Eiffel Tower with Notre Dame. I have traveled around Spain, so it's easy for me to know whether I'm in Toledo or Cordova. If you're a world traveler, you may not have to be told what you're seeing at every moment.
This series could be improved, but despite its faults I keep buying and enjoying the DVDs.

A Great way to see beautiful Paris is with beautiful music. The music moods always seem to fit the Paris views.
