Full description
Enjoy a food tour in one of the most authentic areas of Paris, located far from the main tourist attractions. Start your tour at the legendary Place de la Bastille. Here, enjoy a traditional Parisian breakfast before heading to the Aligre Market through the innumerable passages that give this district its unique character and that have made it a young, trendy and creative place.

At the market, discover 2 distinct sections, each with their own charming atmosphere. Under the covered section, discover French and Italian delicatessen, fresh fish, poultry, dairy, and fresh flowers. In the outdoor section, admire a curious mix of fruit sellers and antique dealers, which combine to form a half food market, half flea market. On the outskirts of the market, stroll around a variety of art and cookshops.

Later, enjoy a tasting of fine wine and cheeses over an old wine barrel. Mingle with the locals and sip a hot chocolate or hot wine during the winter or an aperitif in summer. Feel like a local as you chat with shopkeepers and taste local cheeses, cured meats, and chocolate. You will also learn all about French history on this tour, including the story of the French Revolution.
