Fodor's newest travel series is designed for travelers who want to travel well and spend less. With candid reviews and a fresh outlook, Fodor's upCLOSE points the way to authentic experiences that will take travelers away from the crowds and close to the culture — without having to spend a fortune.

Fodor's upCLOSE Paris is smart, fun, and informative. It gives you quirky, never-obvious facts about major sights, as well as the lowdown on the minor ones. It's in-the-know about what's going on.

  • Hip discoveries, top-floor garrets, and friendly, family-run places
  • Hostels and foyers in medieval palaces and 18th-century houses

The buzz on restaurants, cafés, and Paris by night
  • Bistros and brasseries, baguettes and brie from open-air markets
