France Trip Itineraries

Best of Parisian Cafés

Destination(s): Paris

If you never go to the Louvre, never make it to the Eiffel Tower, if you can't be asked to dare the roundabout at the Arc de Triomphe via taxi -- you can still have the quintessential Parisian experience by hopping from one café to the next or just sitting in one all day long. Don't let anyone tell you different. There is a reason this is a called a café society -- all the good and interesting things happen in the cafes (that and on the metro). So if what you want is to linger for hours and sip one cup of coffee while watching people go by and discuss Nietzche and Kant... don't let anyone tell you you can't. Ha! Au contraire. If you have left Paris without wasting at least a day in one of these great cafés -- you can't really say you've been to Paris. read more about Best of Parisian Cafés
