Paris Picks: 5 Unique Travel Guides to Ensure a Unique Parisian Experience
Before I was a travel writer I was, well and still am, a travel reader. I went through countless guides that were boring and almost read like text books, but I’ve been able to uncover a few gems that have guided me through my travels abroad. Here are my Picks for Paris.
1. Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange
Written by former model and fashion journalist Inès de la Fressange. She reveals the best shops, cafes and restaurants in the City of Light.
2. All You Need to Be Impossibly French: A Witty Investigation into the Lives, Lusts, and Little Secrets of French Women
by Helena Frith-Powell
Wonderfully written with British dry humor, this book is not only informative but also entertaining.
3. Practical Paris by Karen Henrich
Written by a Paris tour company operator that fills the book with tips you wouldn’t find anywhere else.
4. The Traveling Professor’s Guide to Paris by Professor Stephen C. Solosky
A less touristy guide to the more educational and cultural landmarks in Paris.
5. Stuff Parisians Like: Discovering the Quoi in the Je Ne Sais Quoi by Olivier Magny
A guide written by a Frenchman that offers insight to the Parisian culture with a dose of humor.
