Sure, there’s plenty of in-depth (and free) stuff to read and enjoy here at Paris Unlocked— and I fully encourage you to take advantage of it.

But if you want to dig deeper, and get access to all my latest commentary, travel tips and hot takes on what’s happening in the French and Parisian world, consider getting a Master Key– and joining a passionate community of Francophiles like you.



What do you get when you sign up, you’re probably asking? Each plan comes with perks like access to one or more in-depth travel itineraries, discounted access to future e-books or other products, and personal e-mail consultations with Courtney Traub, Founder and Editor of Paris Unlocked and a longtime expert on France and Paris.

She’ll offer ideas, suggestions and guidance to make your next trip to France a truly memorable one, offering personalized advice and expertise and responding to any of your concerns or pressing questions.

New exclusive articles and features are published almost every week, meaning you can keep on top of what’s happening in French culture, art, film, politics and more, plus get the latest travel tips & insights from Courtney. And you can also explore our large existing archive.
