The WITGW House guide to 24 hours in Paris

Whether you're a visitor seeking Paris beyond the tourist spots or a local in search of fresh experiences, we've crafted the ultimate guide to eateries, nightlife, shops, and cultural hotspots hosting exciting events.

Breakfast and Brunch


It first opened in 1615, and is now a buzzing Marais hub for food sellers of all types. Stroll through the dense maze of stalls selling everything from north african grains to italian deli specialties. For those who want a break from the formality of the traditional french dining experience, this market offers a relaxed and (mostly outdoors) convivial atmosphere (and a great place to stock up on snacks for your hotel room or airbnb).

Try THE BUTCHER OF PARIS located in Marché Couvert des Enfants Rouges. Offers a unique dining experience from farm to table, dedicated to quality and offer first-come, first-served seating with a friendly staff.
