The Monocle Team has cut through all the charming, touristy noise to uncover the lesser-known gems that they feel embody the essence of the City of Light, including the century-old shirtmaker offering more than 500 shades of white cloth and a museum where you can whirl on a vintage fairground ride. Their guide will help you navigate the myriad food and wine options, whether it’s the flakiest croissant, a decent cup of coffee or a bistronomie meal you’re after.
Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world so there’s a good chance you’ve already been; regardless, they guarantee this fully-illustrated, 148-page hardback guide will show that there’s plenty more to discover.
The Monocle Travel Guide series reveals their favourite places in each city they cover, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the top independent retailers. Full of surprises and quirks, their guides also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks to get you away from the crowds and their picks for the best places to eat and drink.
