For tourists who want to avoid the well-known spots and discover the locals' favourite addresses, and for residents who want to get to know their city even better, this handy little guide is eminently useful. Written by a true local, the book includes lists such as the 5 best vintage markets, the 5 best workplaces for freelancers and the 5 best concert venues. It features 500 addresses and facts that few people know, such as a restaurant where you can order a French meal until 3:30 in the morning, a small stationer's where the daylight streams in gloriously and you can find the most beautiful Japanese paper creations, or a little shop where gifts like embroidered serviettes are made to order.
And now there's a guidebook, written by a local journalist, to show us all the hidden nooks and crannies of the city we all love. The 500 Hidden Secrets of Paris chronicles -- you guessed it -- all that is hidden and wonderful in the City of Light.--Kate Auletta "Huffington Post, February 10, 2015 "
