Next week I'll be in Paris for a day. It'll be my first time, and I'm skipping the landmarks and museums in favor of chocolate shops. Any advice from those familiar with the scene would be appreciated. I'm currently planning to visit Patrick Roger, Jacques Genin, Jean-Paul Hevin and Michel Chaudun. I might stop at Maison if I pass one, but I can always find them in NY.

Any other places I should include? For those with more than one shop, is there a particular location I should visit? Is it feasible to walk the whole way or should I plan on taking the Metro? Helpful chocolate vocabulary? Thanks!

Here's my blog on chocolate in Paris. Your best bet is to be organized and really plan it out - a Plan de Paris will be very helpful. You can do Hevin by the Ecole Militaire then metro to Constant and walk to Aoki, Herme, Roger, Chaudun, and then hot chocolate at la Charlotte de l'Isle (my best bet) on the left bank and then cross over to the right bank. Best bet there is l'Etoile d'Or, which is referenced in the blog post.

I haven't been yet (planning to do the chocolate pilgrimage in April), but one place that's been recommended to me multiple times is Cafe Angelina for its hot chocolate. In my research I've come across this chocolate tour: and this chocolate map:

Enjoy!! And any advice you can share after your trip would be much appreciated.
