Wine and Dine
In Paris you’ll find of course everything you can think of … . Only a few kilometers further, you are in the Haute Normandy where one gets delicious fish dishes. A specialty of this region is also Bulots, sea-snails. No wine is produced in this area but ales and cider are highly recommendable.
