Frank, incisive reviews take you straight to the best of the city's cafés, restaurants, and nightlife venues, from the ultra-stylish to the magnificently traditional, while tell-it-like-it-is listings help you find the right accommodation for your budget, including boutique design hotels on the Left Bank, grand classics on the Right, or just-perfect budget hideaways.

Make the most of your time with The Rough Guide to Paris, the perfect companion for a city break or a longer stay.
