One of the challenges of visiting an iconic destination like Paris is that the large number of tourists flocking to the must-see sights can make the city feel overcrowded. Instead of just wandering around aimlessly looking for a quiet and off-the-beaten path to escape the crowds in the City of Lights, let Siobhan Wall's thoughtful little guide, Quiet Paris ($19.95) show you the way. A compact 144 pages, Quiet Paris features lively descriptions and lovely photos of more than 120 museums, galleries, shops, libraries, restaurants, parks & gardens, and much more. The book is organized by location type and you can also search the index by arrondissement. Quiet Paris is definitely a must-pack on your next trip to Paris. Just flipping through the book has inspired me to get back to Paris as soon as I can!
Siobhan Wall is a writer and artist and also the author of Quiet Amsterdam and Quiet London.
