Visiting Paris

These pages offer advice on visiting Paris, information about the city that’s hard to find elsewhere, and the like.  Some of it is good stuff to know, some of it is historical, and some of it is just my (somewhat informed) opinion–where to buy the best macarons, non-touristy souvenir ideas, and the like.
