As every Francophile knows, Le Monde is an authority on all things France. Founded in 1944, the publication is now France’s most circulated newspaper and a highly respected independent media source

Ahead of our collaboration with the historic publisher, releasing as part of Not In Paris on June 19, we tapped the editorial team of M Le magazine du Monde (Le Monde’s magazine focused on long reads and lifestyle journalism) for some insider tips on the best places to eat, drink, shop, and explore in Paris.

Caluche
