Pocket Precincts Paris
The world’s most visited city, Paris is a place of fable and fantasy, of elegant boulevards and masterpiece-packed museums; but it’s also a vibrant, fascinatingly real city, exploding with youthful energy and fresh ideas. With Paris Pocket Precincts, explore Paris as the Parisians do: share an apéro at a canal-side wine bar, discover local artisan shops selling everything from perfume to porcelain, lingerie to luggage and dance the night away in hidden basement clubs to up-and-coming DJs.
In a compact, light paperback format perfect for slipping into your back pocket, this is your curated guide to the city’s most interesting cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences. Divided into separate precincts, each section lists the best shops, restaurants, bars and sights to see in the area. The precincts that the guide covers are: Le Premier, 1st; Sentier, Montorgueil & Bourse, 2nd; The Marais & the Islands, 3rd & 4th; Left Bank, 5th, 6th, 13th & 15th; Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées, 7th, 8th & 16th; Pigalle & Opéra, 9th; Canal Saint-Martin & République, 10th; Bastille, Oberkampf & Aligre, 11th & 12th; Montmartre, Château Rouge & Barbés, 18th; Belleville, Ménilmontant & Villette, 19th & 20th.

As well as detailed reviews and maps for major attractions through to hidden gems, the guide includes a selection of ‘field trips’ encouraging you to venture further afield to Versailles, Champagne and Lyon.
