Made with love by travelers – for travelers!


It’s a city whose story has been told a thousand times over.

A city I fell in love with it the first time I ever visited.

Paris is everything you imagine it to be — cultured, sophisticated, romantic, beautiful, historic, stylish, and filled with music, wine, food, and life.

For first-timers, Paris can be intimidating. When should you go? What should you see? How do you get around? How do you avoid all those tourists? How do you avoid those high prices you’ve heard about?

That’s where this book comes in.

It’s easy to get lost in the sea of information online, TripAdvisor reviews, and top-ten lists.

Who has time to wade through thousands and thousands of websites and reviews written by people who might not know a croissant from a baguette?

I used my decade of travel experience in Paris to write this straightforward book to experiencing Paris the right way.

This comprehensive guide features insider tips on places to eat, stay, and play that will help you get off the beaten path and into the little secret spots free of tourists.

With this guidebook, you’ll get to see Paris the way it’s meant to be seen.

“I only had five days in Paris and wanted to make each one count. This guide was brilliant in breaking down each arrondissement so I could eat and explore the areas most suited to my travel style and budget.
