Spring is here! It is one of the best periods to visit and enjoy the first rays of sun. Terraces fill, the days are extended and a summer climate settles down on the Parisian capital. What could be more pleasant than a stroll along with a tasting of best local products? Tourists are crazy about French gastronomy (so we are!) and that is why we made a selection of our best gastronomy tours for our greediest readers. These tours allow you to explore a district of Paris, its beautiful architectures, its history and its anecdotes, while making gustative and playful stopping places in greedy shops targeted for their products or know-how of exception: chocolates, pastries, subtle olive oil, regional products. It is also the best way both for a first time traveler and more frequent travelers to be immersed in the Parisian life.
The first local gastronomy tour we suggest you is located in the village of Montmartre, famous for its bohemian life. You walk through the small streets off the beaten track of that mythical neighborhood to taste local produce with a traditional and artisanal character. On Lepic and Abbesses streets, you visit a fishmonger, a charcutier, a butcher, a baker and a vegetable seller. The tour ends in front of Clos Montmartre winery, last trace of an agricultural past. During the tour, you taste charcutier specialities, bread, wine and pastries.
Chocolate lovers will enjoy our Chocolate and pastry food tour in Saint-Germain-des-Près which is the fashion district par excellence. Discover all the trends for sweets created by exceptional artisans, who have been widely celebrated in the whole gastronomical press. The chef confectioners and chocolate makers live with each other in talent, and the windows in refinement and elegance, for the greatest joy of the eyes and of the palate.Let yourself be guided by the smell of hot pastries made at la Patisserie des rêves or the famous pastry Pierre Hermé. You won’t regret your stop and will surely leave with a gluttony.
