Taste of the Marais

About this neighborhood: Throughout its long history, the Marais has been home to successive waves of aristocrats, immigrants, artists, and hipsters. The northern section of this quarter is now exploding with art galleries, independent fashion boutiques, and cool new eateries.

What we’ll taste: We’ll start the day with buttery croissants and crisp baguettes from an award-winning baker, then visit a family-run fromagerie where they age their own small-production cheeses. We’ll select a range of different cheeses to taste, then add to our basket by picking up some delectable saucisson from a pig-obsessed charcutier. We’ll be stopping at a quirky cave à vins to sit and sample and taste all of these with French wine. We will the wind our way to a blow-out sweets tasting at one of our favorite chocolatier in Paris (and therefore the world).

Our aim with morning food tours is to share a wide range of traditional French foods paired with wine, and so we’ll be tasting at a small wine shop located in the oldest covered market in Paris.

Price for a small group tour:: 95€ per person, including all tastings. Check our calendar of upcoming tours to see when this tour is running. More on private tour options here
