Top Reasons to Go

Musée National du Moyen-Age. On the site of an ancient Roman bath, this former abbey is home to the famous Lady and the Unicorn tapestries; the building, tranquil garden, and extensive collection have the hush of a medieval monastery.

Shakespeare & Co. This legendary English-language bookstore is more than a shopping destination; it's a meeting place for young expats and curious travelers alike.

Rue Mouffetard. Stroll down this winding market street to collect fixings for a picnic à la française with warm bread, delicious cheese, and fresh oysters.

Jardin des Plantes. This is a great spot to picnic or to rest your tired feet on one of the many shaded benches.
