Sugar & Spice and Women Who Write

This walking tour aims to shed light on the lives and achievements of female writers in Paris. The walk features profiles of influential women writers and guides tourists through the glamorous Saint Germain-des-Prés district where many of these women lived or are paid tribute to. 
On top of that, this district is also known for its concentration of wonderful chocolatiers, patisseries and confectioneries and so your walk will be punctuated with 5 opportunities to try some of the best sweet treats the city has to offer. After all, it wouldn't be Paris without something delicious to eat! 
There will be stories of the likes of Colette and George Sand as well as tastings at famous spots such as Henri Le Roux, Georges Larnicol and Pierre Marcolini... and goodness galore!
