Paris Books

Recommended Reading and Guides


There are literally thousands of Paris books: travel, city guides, restaurants, history, sites, literature and more.

We have become familiar with hundreds of them and make recommendations based on how useful we have found them and how convenient they are to travel with.

We have scattered recommendations for Paris books throughout our pages and created some helpful links here to assist you in locating the finest and the most personally interesting for you to read at home or to take along on your vacation.

Most visitors to Paris carry at least one good guide book. If I were to chose one of the many Paris books specifically designed to travel it would be, Paris, Eyewitness Travel Guide, for it's wealth of information and it's elegant presentation.

Here is a beautiful photographic look of everyday Parisian life during the 20th century by one of France's most gifted photographers, Willy Ronis. Willy Ronis: La Vie En Passant and a great addition to your collection of Paris books.
