This is a fun, practical guide for anyone visiting Paris who enjoys food and shopping. The book covers more than 120 markets—a combination of food markets as well as flea, antique, crafts, books, vintage postcards, etc. It contains all of the essential information one needs to plan the outings to markets and make the most of one's stay in Paris. It also includes restaurant recommendations and colorful photos.
Friendly, informative prose that gives just enough historical detail to pique curiosity and interest. Beautiful photos that capture the color and charm of the products and locations. A small format that slips easily into a backpack, yet heft enough to not get lost among the souvenirs. I'll definitely be bringing it on my next trip to Paris!
Super helpful. Used this a lot during our trip.
