Sample from the Itinerary
This is a sample of the itinerary. The actual itinerary includes images, maps and addresses.
You really can't get more traditional than croissants for breakfast. Croissants, pains au chocolat and chaussons aux pommes are known as viennoiseries in French, which translates to Viennese pastries. Of course, today, these delicacies are far better known for their French side than for their Austrian roots. Viennoiseries are usually consumed on weekend mornings by Parisians; luckily, you're on vacation, and you have your pick of some of the best any day of the week.
Des Gâteaux et du Pain
63, boulevard Pasteur, 15th arrondissement (closed Tuesdays)
This pâtisserie feels almost like an art gallery, with shiny black walls and a display case in the center of the room, where men poised with silver tongs await your order.
