The strolls proceed in short segments. Each segment has its own page, with walking directions at the top followed by descriptions of the attractions and dining options you reach.

The descriptions are based on extensive research and in-person visits, and contain interesting details you won’t find elsewhere. As important, they are concisely written, so you can read and enjoy them quickly at the location.
The website’s “30 Strolls at A Glance” section provides a summary page for each stroll (with photos and map) that allows you to determine whether it fits your schedule and interests. You can also select a stroll from the categories in the “Choose A Stroll” section. Consult the “How It Works” section for easy-to-follow instructions about opening and operating a stroll on your phone.
It took years of research, exploration, test walks and careful thought to create walking guides worthy of the name Best Paris Strolls. The finished product also owes a debt to the folks at Internet Minded Design & Development who devised the unique directions software and designed this stellar website.
