Paris is everything you imagine it to be — cultured, sophisticated, classy, romantic, beautiful, historic, and stylish. It is a place to fall in love and be in love.
But for first-timers, it can be intimidating. When should you go? What should you see? How do you get around? How do you avoid all those tourists who overwhelm the place? How do you avoid those high prices you’ve heard about?
In short, where do you begin?
It’s easy to get lost in the sea of information online, TripAdvisor information, and top-ten lists.
And not knowing where to go or what to do means losing out on having an authentic Parisian experience, away from the crowds and high priced (and terrible) tourist traps. When this happens, you miss the true magic that is Paris.
I’m always sad when I hear stories from people about how much money they spent on their visit or the sites they saw filled with crowds. Paris, a city of 2 million people, has its gems, nooks, and crannies where prices are reasonable and there isn’t a tourist in sight.
There are tons of websites dedicated to Paris, but who has time to wade through thousands and thousands of websites written by people who might not know a croissant from a baguette?
I used my near decade of personal experience and expert knowledge to write a straightforward book on how you can experience Paris the right way. This comprehensive guide features insider tips on places to eat, stay, and play. I’ll help you get off the beaten path and into the little secret spots free of tourists.

What’s the difference between this guide and the information on this site? While the website has a lot of good information on Paris, it doesn’t offer specific accommodation, restaurant, bar recommendations, neighborhood information, itineraries, and extensive money saving tips. It doesn’t give any sort of background on the history of Paris, tell you anything about the culture there, or go over important information like customs, laws, visa, and emergency information. This 80-page guidebook goes into way more detail than a couple thousand word blog posts can!
