A visit to Paris wouldn't be complete without a walk around Saint-Germain. There are many shops, cafes, and plenty of people watching. A high share of people are probably tourists, certainly at the cafes, but that shouldn't discourage a visit.

This area of Paris was alive with small unusual shops and bustling cafes and bars. People watching was so much fun here and the caffe latte's were great.

The place was so vibrant and if sorry WHEN I go to Paris again I will definitely look into staying around here. This place wasn't even in our itinerary but we spent... More

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon, strolling around this area. You must visit the church, St Germain and a wee peek into les deux maggots ( 2 chinese traders) is worthwhile as you can see the photos of some of the famous clientele such as Hemingway.

I just really like this district and always go there as soon as I can. Not just because it's Saint-Germain Des Prés, I do not run after that kind of things (luxury shops...) , but because it's really nice... You can go for a drink at Le Café de Flore (I did it once... waouh... You just feel like a... More

Looking for a great area to stay, that is close to major attractions, has excellent restaurants, lots of shopping, lovely cafes, and bookstores then this is definitely the area!! It's an area that is young, happening and has a cool vibe! Pay for the location when in Paris, you will not regret staying here.

From the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame just use the Batobus and experience Paris from the river. Mant wonderful bars and cafes and the... More

Shopping area but with a touch of classic beauty. I like the ambience of the area, the buildings around. SO nice and different.
