The Famous Bookstore
Perhaps the most famous independent bookstore in the world, Shakespeare and Company, can feel like a literary utopia, where for decades the bookshop (in both its original location and relocation) served as a gathering place for many writers such as Ezra Pound, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Allen Ginsberg, Zadie Smith, Dave Eggers, among others.
Each of these writers found their Parisian home in this bookstore, which was also the ideal space for them to share their literary genius. Today, the bookstore continues to serve as a purveyor of new and second-hand books, as an antiquarian bookseller, and as a free reading library open to the public.
The Iconic Street
The Champs-Élysées in Paris is one of the most famous streets in the world, and is frequently described as "the world's most beautiful avenue." The legendary street becomes even that more glamorous when viewed from home.
