Meet your guide in the Marais district—once the locale of Parisian aristocracy and now one of the city’s most fashionable and artsy neighborhoods. Set off by foot to discover why Marais is also known as a destination for discerning foodies, starting off with a typical Parisian breakfast of coffee and a croissant.
Continue on through the atmospheric medieval streets to a boulangerie (bakery) for a sampling of traditional French bread and a lesson in the proper way to eat a baguette. Make your way to Paris’s oldest covered market to browse the colorful vendor stalls and sample fragrant French cheeses along with wine.
Stop in at a neighborhood brasserie (casual restaurant) to soak up the ambiance and enjoy a savory serving of croque monsieur sandwich or French pie. Finally, finish the tour on a sweet note with nibbles of some of Paris’s best chocolates and French macarons from a confectionary, plus a special secret dish.
With a fully satisfied stomach, say au revoir to your guide near the Seine River.
