Cuisery, "Village of Books"

In the 1990s, this medieval village 10 miles east of Tournus in southern Burgundy was semi-abandoned and filled with empty storefronts. To revitalize their town, Cuisery locals (with the help of the regional government) transformed the town into Burgundy's book capital. Dozens of bookstores and stalls line the pedestrian-only main street: Some volumes are extremely valuable; most are not—but look carefully, and you might find an unnoticed first edition. (Note that most of the books are in French, but there are some in English and other languages.) Visit on the first Sunday of the month, when the streets fill with even more stands than usual.—David Downie
