Can't say enough about St Gemain des Pres. Great shopping and the most awesome display or restaurants you'll find. Whatever you are hungry for, you'll find it in this area. Bustling yet quaint at the same time. So much to see and do it's worth it to spend a day here.

so many tiny streets with boulangeries and gelato and street cafes from near the Seine to Montparnasse - so much to enjoy and history of artists and writers. can walk to Luxembourg Gardens, Dorsay, Bon Marche, Montparnasse Tower (in the neighboring 7th Arr.)

My friend and I absolutely loved this area. We walked around and found unique and interesting shops to explore. Even came across a fantastic antiques market. Highly recommend exploring this area.

I adore this section of Paris! Great stores (name brand - Sonia Rykiel for example and small shops) abound. No, this isn't rue Faubourg St Honore, so you won't be window shopping at Hermes. However, there are beautiful and unique stores in this area along with great food and people watching. Paris, like New York, is a great walking city.... More

This gem of a neighborhood has it all. Great restaurants of many ethnicities, cafes galore, gorgeous architechture, churches, shops, etc. We stayed in the Latin Quarter but wandered here often. It was great to do a few self guided walking tours to discover where famous writers lived (and died) and check out the local flair. St, Suplice Church, featured in... More

Day or night St Germain is what Paris is all about. Beautiful shops by day and a very alive place at night. So many cafés and restaurants the mind boggles. Head a few streets back from the main strip and you will find some of the best places to eat in Paris.

Highly recommend the Hotel Signature St Germain des Pres on Rue Chomel. Feels like home, staff is awesome! Great location, close to metro Sevre Babylone.

Le quartier St-Germain-des-prés on the left bank is a great place to stroll hand in hand with your loved one. This is one of the romantic places in Paris during the evening. It is also nice during the day but doesn't have the same feel. The streets are lit up at night with all the hustle and bustle of the... More

I've been to Paris many times and have family there, so we always go to Saint Germain, it's definitely a great neighborhood, in the upper end with boutique shops and great restaurant. Come here to walk around and window shop maybe eat at restaurant but everything is expensive (unless you are uber rich, you wouldn't be checking out Trip advisor)... More
