Must Dos In Paris

1. Visit the Shakespeare & Co. bookstore (across from Notre Dame on the left bank), which is a very personal English bookshop opened some 60 years ago by George Whitman, an American.

2. Go to the Place des Vosges, which is the oldest and most beautiful square in Paris—and where Victor Hugo lived. Have a drink in one of the cafés on the square and then roam around the Marais for the day, or end on the square. It was built by Henry IV in 1605-1612, over 400 years ago.

4. Check out the tip of Île de la Cité: the place Dauphine. The first of Paris’s wine bars, Taverne Henri IV (13, Place du Pont Neuf, in the 1st; 01 43 54 27 90), is there, plus some other lovely restaurants. Combine this with a walk through Île St. Louis. Of course, the famousBerthillon ice cream shop started here on the island at (29, rue St.-Louis-en-l’Ile).

6. In the 5th (the Latin Quarter, near the Sorbonne) another magical out-of-the-way place is the Mosquée de Paris an historic mosque from the 1920s with a bathhouse, or hammam, as they call it. Call first. You will feel like you went to Morocco for the day.
