Fodor's Review

Dating back to 1520s Venice, this venerable bookstore opened in Paris in 1801 and was the first to specialize in English language books. Its present location, across from the Tuileries Garden on the rue de Rivoli, opened in 1856, and the wood bookshelves, creaking floors, and hushed interior provide the perfect atmosphere for perusing Paris's best collection of contemporary and classic greats in English and French, plus a huge selection of gorgeous art books.
