You are in Paris and you see that it's full of tourists. They all wear a Paris sweater or a Paris hat, all of these are made in China so why bring them home?

There are so many independent shops and artists making small items that will remind you of France and won't cost you 1000000 euros like a Louis Vuitton purse.

Let me show you some of my favorite boutiques to buy postcards, notebooks, pins, perfume, clothes, jewels, chocolate, wine and anything you are looking for!

We will walk in the pretty streets of Paris and stop by five shops where you can spend 15 minutes to browse and shop. You will be able to come back, using the map I will give you after we finish the tour.

Itinerary

We will walk from a shop to another, for the whole tour, and even sit down for a drink half way if you want.
Our shopping tour will be located in Le Marais, because this neighborhood is the most beautiful and exciting place for shops.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building
