Overview

It has been said that even those who hate shopping love to shop in Paris. Indeed, of all the ways to explore the City of Lights-touring, studying, or meandering its colorful streets-shopping is by far the most pleasant and civilized way to get to know the city.

The fourth edition of The Paris Shopping Companion is a major revision and expansion of the third edition, making it the perfect book for the traveler who wants to make the most of what Paris has to offer. A personal guide from two authors who know the city and its shops intimately, it is helpful to anyone who wants to look at Parisian establishments from a French point of view.

With maps of the major shopping areas and photographs that tastefully illustrate the text, The Paris Shopping Companion is organized to encourage shopping forays, neighborhood by neighborhood, throughout the city. The book describes the merchandise of a wide array of Paris businesses that offer unique goods and services: clothing, linens, jewelry, accessories, books (including English-language stores), perfumes, food, antiques and collectibles, leather goods, kitchen aids, and more. Packed with practical information, it is a reliable guide for anyone who travels to Paris, regardless of the size of one's budget.
