There's no mystery about how Paris remains, to anyone with a pulse, the most arresting treasure dome in the world: vivacity and attitude infuse its every aspect, from the brilliance of its buildings to the glories of its gastronomy and the provocative insouciance of its sexuality. Paris is one big come-hither wink. Not only does Paris exemplify the stylish way to do everything, but it also offers numerous and diverse cultural opportunities. Packed with up-to-the-minute information, the Time Out Paris guide gathers all that the exquisite City of Lights has to offer, from museums to monuments, high-fashion boutiques to street markets, haute cuisine to bargain bistros, and more. Highlights include a completely revised sightseeing chapter with practical, historical, and cultural information on the city's best-known and lesser-known delights; an analysis of Paris's role as the capital city of alternative opinion on the world's political stage; a celebration of French cinema; an exposé of the blood, sweat, and fears that go into making Paris the world capital of food; and every address travelers could possibly need for wining, dining, or simply reclining.

About the author (2005)

Founded in 1968, Time Out has grown from humble beginnings into the leading resource for anyone wanting to know whatâe(tm)s happening in the worldâe(tm)s greatest cities. Alongside our influential weeklies in London, New York, Chicago and Dubai, we publish more than 20 magazines in cities as varied as Beijing and Beirut; a range of travel books, with City Guides now joined by pocket-sized Shortlist series; and an information-packed website. The company remains proudly independent, still owned by Tony Elliott four decades after he launched Time Out London. Written by local experts, and illustrated with original photography, our books also retain their independence. No business has been featured because it has advertised, and all restaurants and bars are visited and reviewed anonymously.
