Overview

There's no mystery about how Paris remains, to anyone with a pulse, the most arresting treasure dome in the world: vivacity and attitude infuse its every aspect, from the brilliance of its buildings to the glories of its gastronomy and the provocative insouciance of its sexuality. Paris is one big come-hither wink. Not only does Paris exemplify the stylish way to do everything, but it also offers numerous and diverse cultural opportunities. Packed with up-to-the-minute information, the Time Out Paris guide gathers all that the exquisite City of Lights has to offer, from museums to monuments, high-fashion boutiques to street markets, haute cuisine to bargain bistros, and more. Highlights include a completely revised sightseeing chapter with practical, historical, and cultural information on the city's best-known and lesser-known delights; an analysis of Paris's role as the capital city of alternative opinion on the world's political stage; a celebration of French cinema; an exposé of the blood, sweat, and fears that go into making Paris the world capital of food; and every address travelers could possibly need for wining, dining, or simply reclining.
