The most famous independent bookstore in the world, Shakespeare & Company in Paris doesn’t need much of an introduction. It’s simply a must-visit place when exploring the streets of Paris.

Expect to see thousands of books, ranging from 200-year old pieces to newer books. You don’t have to be a bookworm to appreciate this place. You can listen to French poetry here, marvel the inspiring quotes on the walls, or grab a cup of coffee.

Keep in mind that this is an extremely popular bookshop and there is usually a line in front of the place.
