Indulge your taste buds with a delectable day exploring the very best bites in Paris. Come prepared with your appetite and your walking shoes, and make your way to the Ledru-Rollin metro station in the 12th arrondissement to meet your guide, a local foodie.
Begin in the city’s Bastille district, where you’ll wander through the Marché d'Aligre — an authentic neighborhood market where many locals come to shop. Stroll among vendor stalls piled high with fresh produce, and taste local wine and cheese while chatting with merchants. Next, take a break for lunch at a typical Parisian café, and savor seasonal French cuisine served with wine.
Continue on to the artistic enclave of St-Germain-des-Prés for sweet and satisfying stops at three of the city best confectionaries, which may include Chocolats Richart, Pierre Marcolini, Debauve et Gallais and Patrick Roger.
After indulging in tastings of chocolates and macarons, rest your feet at a traditional salon de thé (tea room). Rejuvenate with your choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate paired with a fresh-baked pastry.
For a fantastically French finish, visit the renowned wine cellars of Paris Cave to taste four different wines under the expert guidance of a sommelier. Learn what makes French wines so exquisite, and learn tips for pairing while you snack on a shared charcuterie platter.
After a full-day of feasting, your 7-hour tour concludes at Paris Cave in the evening.
