It’s easy to get lost in the fashion when visiting Paris, but the temptation of window displays doesn’t end there. The one thing you must indulge in is sweets. When it comes to patisseries and chocolate shops, this is one the best places in the world to be. The French have elevated the act of baking to an art form, and Paris is where you’ll find some of the most talented artisans. From classic éclairs and macaroons to bite-sized chocolate confections garnished with ganache, there’s an abundance of artisanal treats to try.
So, where do you start? We put our trust in a local, using the Get Your Guide app, and spent three hours eating our way through the best chocolate and pasty shops in Paris. From Poilâne, the oldest bakery in the capital, to hot spots like La Maison du Chocolat and Pierre Hermé, join us on a tour that will delight your taste buds.
