Shakespeare on the Seine

An American company, celebrating the English genius of Shakespeare, in the heart of Paris’ Latin quarter- Shakespeare and Company’s history is as diverse as the purpose of the store itself; serving as a bookshop, library and a sort of museum. Formally a refuge for aspiring writers, it served as the perfect spot for us to recover from the night before, while getting lost reading the notes people had stuck on the wall as the piano was being played by a passing visitor in the next room…

Whether you’re hunting out a rare book or true love (as many of the handwritten notes appeared to offer), Shakespeare and Company is the perfect way to while away a lazy Parisian afternoon… It just has a certain je ne sais quoi.
