This is an insider's tour, with fourteen themed adventures that include Paris nightlife, shopping the French way, patisseries, neighborhood bars, museums and more. Whether on foot, metro, bus or taxi, Paris is a city of endless adventure, appealing to the impulsive, the romantic and the curious.

In her illustrations, Jill translates the austere grandeur of Paris into colorful, intimate depictions of local detail, taken from the very real places she writes about.
I wish I'd read Wandering Paris before my last trip to Paris, from London, on the Eurostar, just for Sunday afternoon, just to remind myself. I'd have gone to the Sunday market, instead of taking an earlier train home.
