Full description
Discover the vibrant neighborhood of Les Halles, which was formerly known as the 'the stomach of Paris' because it was home to a huge wholesale food market. See how nowadays, this district is still a must-visit spot for food enthusiasts, since it features a wide variety of gastronomic specialty stores and restaurants, alongside kitchen supply stores.

Meet your passionate foodie guide and set off together to explore the local boutiques. Start with classic pastries in a boulangerie, followed by a visit to the city’s oldest patisserie, founded in 1730. Also, try samples of artisanal cheeses in a traditional fromagerie and delicious cured meats from a charcuterie. Admire many specialist food shops - butchers, fishmongers, and vegetable markets, as you amble through the lively streets. 

Then, if you choose the option with lunch, join the local Parisians by having a fresh authentic French lunch at the end of your tour, picking out your favorite foods along the way. You also have the option to end the tour in an award-winning wine bar. Here, pair your foodie discoveries with a flight of top-class wines served by an expert sommelier.
