This area of Paris is so fun and cool. There are a ton of cool side walk cafes to stop and have a drink or snack and people watch. This area has so much charm. The buildings are unique and the people are extremely friendly. This area seems to be far less touristy Champs Elysees. We really enjoyed our tour... More

Stayed here on our second trip and loved it. Honestly the best shops, food and atmosphere. We rented an apartment for a week and lived like locals- enjoyed the shopping, the cafes and the restaurants.

A great spot for food and shopping. Stop by Deux Magots for a great lunch and people-watching. Fun shops on nearly every side street, including clothes, jewelry, perfumeries, and art.

We got "lost in St Germaine a few times while in Paris. Charming cafes and flower shops that you don't want to miss. Wander the streets in this area.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
