Why haven’t you made it to the Ulysse bookstore yet? It’s smack dab in the center of Paris. In the middle of the Seine. On the main street of the Ile Saint Louis. Perhaps you needed a map to find it. And all the maps of the world were already inside!
Maybe now you’re looking for an excuse to go there. Here’s one: French License is now at Librairie Ulysse!
They call themselves kilometre zero, because from their door you can set out to discover the rest of the planet. Do you know where is the island of Saint Lucie? Not the Isle of Lucy, you goof! It’s one of the lesser visited islands in the Caribbean. Well, I asked and Ulysse had a map of it, right down to all the street names. The last time I visited, a regular came in for information on travel to Yemen. Where else can you find such treasures in Paris? Nowhere, I tellzya!
Travel is their speciality, and exotic destinations their strong suit. Catherine and Dominique are extremely helpful, and can procure a map or guidebook out from their shelves like a magician pulls a rabbit out of a hat.
Open Tuesday-Friday 2 p.m.-8 p.m.
26, rue Saint Louis en l’Ile, 75004 Paris, France
