Paris is one of the most popular tourist destinations on earth, and for a very good reason; it’s a fascinating and fun place to visit. Each year The City of Light greets close to 30 million foreign tourists, and most of them are headed for a select list of the exact same places.
As a result, the lines to get into the most popular museums are long, and once inside it can get unbelievably crowded. Not only that, but the most visited parks, sites, and restaurants – along with the streets around them – are simply crammed with foreign tourists these days. And while these are still must see locations, the fact is that the crush of humanity can become a bit overwhelming at times.
This little book is a guide to some great spots and experiences – all within Paris – that will get you away from the multitude of tourists, and give you a little breathing space to enjoy more of this great city – and enhance your organic contact with a Paris many tourists never see.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I remember on a recent trip to the Louvre, while trying to get close enough to the Mona Lisa to catch a peek, I realized that if I’d suddenly fainted, there was very little chance I would actually fall to the ground, since I was surrounded by such a tightly packed mob. And the last time I was in Notre Dame Cathedral, I actually had to maneuver for several seconds before I could move my hand up to scratch my itching ear. It all got me to wondering – are there places in this great world capital that are both interesting, and still relatively free of tourists?
This book is the result of that voyage of discovery.
