Books inspired by Paris
Our hand-picked selection of books to get you in the mood to travel
A poignant two-part novel about French society at the point of the German invasion of WW2. Originally intended as 4 parts, the author's untimely death in Auschwitz in 1942 prevented the rest from being written. This was discovered and published 65 years later and is now hailed as a masterpiece.
An epic novel following four families over hundreds of years: bound by forbidden loves and marriages of convenience; dogged by vengeance and murderous secrets; torn apart by the irreconcilable differences of birth and faith, and brought together by the tumultuous history of their city. A book which bursts to life in the intrigue, corruption and glory of its people.
Chosen by Stuart
A beautifully written and sensuous novel set in 18th century France. An unwanted and "unscented" child is born with an extraordinary sense of smell and uses his gift to become the finest perfumer in France. But his dreams of creating the world's finest perfume bring out murderous instincts. A cult classic, you won't have ever read anything like it!
When to visit
Where better for a Valentine's escape than the original City of Love? Strolling its wide avenues and boulevards hand in hand, perhaps stopping for a glass of wine at a street cafe. Ooh la la!
Paris in the spring has its own unique charms: bright and sunny days, with the very beginnings of alfresco dining, romantic walks along the Seine, and chestnuts in blossom, all preparing for summer.
There are few lovelier cities than Paris in summer. Boulevards and parks bathed in golden sunshine and ample opportunity for pausing at one of its tiny street cafés to people-watch. A pure joy!

29th November 2018 by PommieTravelsTips for visiting the Louvre in Paris
With that unmistakeable glass pyramid, The Louvre is one of the most iconic attractions in Paris. Because of this, it is incredibly popular with tourists, attracting 7.3 million people per year, so you can expect to be fighting your way through the crowds to catch a glimpse of Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa painting. Still it’s worth it, since the museum is home to a huge collection of art works including the Venus de Milo and Winged Victory. Here are my top tips for visiting the...
12th September 2018 by StuartReview: Paris Catacombs
Make no bones about it, they're creepy! Cata-come and visit!I've been to Paris lots of times and ticked off all the major tourist attractions. So on recent visits I've been starting to look at slightly more obscure or out-of-the-way things to do.I'd wanted to go to the Catacombs in Paris for quite some time, having seen a few photos online. I took the photo attached to this blog during my visit and I'm sure you'll understand my sense of macabre interest in seeing the place for...
23rd August 2018 by JohnEurostar review: Standard class from Ebbsfleet to Paris
I’ve only travelled on the Eurostar once before. On that occasion, I travelled to Paris and back on a Standard Premier ticket. Eurostar offer three classes of travel; Standard, Standard Premier and Business Premier. They’re kind of equivalent to Economy, Economy Plus and Business class on a flight. At the time of booking the previous trip, Standard Premier was on offer and so the upgrade was an absolute no-brainer. This time around, I thought I’d check out the regular Standard class, to...

18th April 2018 by StuartParis vs Airbnb
Oh, mon Dieu! It's "baguettes at dawn" as the row between the city of Paris and online home rental company Airbnb escalates ...and it looks like Paris might win. What's been happening? Paris officials are taking Airbnb to court claiming more than 43,000 homes listed on the site are unregistered with the French government. The city already restricts homeowners to renting out their homes for no more than 120 days a year, but if the ruling goes in their favour, up to 84% of Airbnb's...
