Food & Philosophy
This walking tour will focus on the chic neighbourhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. The foodie status of this up-scale quarter is rooted in the area’s reputation as the rendezvous of the literary and intellectual elite of the city; from influential philosophers such as Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre, to prominent writers like Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. One could imagine they were sitting in a café, writing, contemplating, debating with other illustrious figures of the 20th century, while sipping on fine French wines accompanied by a nice cheese board.
Since then, the area has blossomed into a gastronomically-gifted neighbourhood, filled with artisanal specialty food shops. Our expert guides will help you uncover the best hidden gems and will teach you all about French food culture as you soak up the atmosphere of a quintessentially Parisian neighbourhood. This tour will invite you to taste the “trinity of the French table” – wine, cheese, and bread, alongside scrumptious French pâtisseries, and divine chocolates. At the end of this delectable tour, you’ll fall in love with the City of Lights all over again.
