In the shadows of Notre Dame, uncover the gastronomical secrets of one of the oldest neighborhoods of Paris. This Food Tour is for anyone and everyone looking to see (and taste) their way through the islands of Paris. Wind between the cobbled stone streets sampling from the classique and traditionelle shops that still run by the same families for generations. In just three hours, we will have a select tasting from some of the best boutiques from Île Saint Louis and Ile de la Cité, and have a stop over in the historic Latin Quarter. While en route, we will visit lesser known monuments surrounding Notre Dame, all while strolling along the Seine river. It’s a perfect morning in Paris!
