Summer is in full swing and eating ice cream is something you has to do as much as you can these months. There is nothing that makes me more happy than strolling through the city with an ice cream in each hand.
Fortunately, Paris has many ice cream shops so there is always one nearby. And in addition to a huge selection of creamy ice creams, all stores also have lots of sorbet ice cream flavors. So it’s a perfect spot for vegans too. And there’re not only fruit flavors; chocolate, almond and coconut are on the sorbet list too. Yum!
Here are my favorite ice cream shops in Paris.
