Stew Ross is an author specializing in high quality, deeply researched walking tour books based on historical events or historical time periods in Paris, London, and Rome. He takes you to the actual buildings, places, and sites significant to the theme of the book.
These books are perfect for the traveler who likes history and wants a "hands-on" experience with respect to visiting original historical sites including stories about the building and its occupants.
These walking tour books are meticulously researched to ensure accuracy, significance, and uniqueness for the various stops you are taken to. You'll learn about the people who inhabited the buildings and their historical roles.
If you enjoy any of the book's themes and you return to these cities multiple times or a first time visitor but are looking for something unique to do, then you will want to spend some time at sites like the courtroom where Marie Antoinette was tried and once was King Louis IX's bedroom.
Do the walks in whole. Do them in part. Pick out only those stops that appeal to you--perhaps you only have a limited time in the city. One of out clients had enough time to do the walk where you start at the Conciergerie prison and follow the exact route Marie Antoinette's cart took to the guillotine. Along the way, he stopped at Robespierre's apartment.
Stew is a retired commercial banker whose passion for history and travel has led him into his latest ventures, that of author and publisher. When he and his wife, Sandy aren't traveling and researching his next book, they enjoy spending time in their swimming pool in Southwest Florida.
