PARIS NOTES is a living guide, giving you current, up-to-date coverage of this constantly changing city.

We cover it all in PARIS NOTES.

To everyone who has experienced Paris—as well as those who have only dreamed about it— the city is a different place. You undoubtedly have your own Paris, whether it is based on many visits or the image that countless pictures and movies have instilled in your mind over the years. As Hemingway once wrote, „…the memory of each person who has lived it differs from that of any other.” With PARIS NOTES, your Paris will become a richer, more exciting and endlessly fascinating place.

That’s because PARIS NOTES is so much more than a travel newsletter.

PARIS NOTES seeks—and succeeds beautifully according to our thousands of readers—to be much more than just a travel guide: it’s your connection to the enduring spirit and the special „feeling” of the city. It’s simply the best way of staying in touch, a wonderful „dose” of Paris ten times a year.

For many, Paris is a lifelong adventure, one that PARIS NOTES will help you fulfill.
