One of the items on our list to do in Paris was to walk through Saint Germain. We took a leisurely stroll from our accommodation and were pleasantly surprised how quiet it was for a Saturday morning. We then turned into Saint Germain. Quiet became a hub-hub of noise, activity, restaurants and well-known churches and cafes. We brunched, we walked... More

This is one of my favorite areas of Paris. I've been here for 2 weeks and I've walked Saint Germain des Pres everyday. I love the little shops, the art work, the restaurants. I also enjoy looking at the beautiful buildings, some ancient and plain and others laced with amazing wrought iron balconies. It's a walkers paradise.

There is no Ritz, no Bristol and no George V but there are charming boutique five star hotels like the fabulous Pont Royal nearby in the 7th. Brasserie Lipp is always a trip. L'Atlas still has the best Moules Frites in Paris and if you can get in, Yves Camdebord's Le Relais St. Germain has a great Prix Fix menu... More

A good place to walk around, stop for a coffee and maybe a pastry. There are some interesting shops and galleries.

One of my favorite areas, so close to Latin quarter, the Seine and rue de dragon for shoe lovers. Easy access to metros and trains.

We almost always stay in or near this part of the city when in Paris. It is full of quaint shops and nice cafes. Easy walks abound. In a word, it's fun.

We were on a quest to do some serious shopping and only ended up eating in this Quarter. (We were disappointed that many American stores are now in Paris. If I wanted to go to the Gap and Banana Republic, I have plenty within a few miles of my house in Atlanta!) We did enjoy walking around and couldn't decide... More

This area is located near a major traffic artery, and the seine. Therefore it is so expensive, because of the accessibility (!) Do not think you will find authenticity here, but if you want to drink a coffee and one of the people want to be on the terrace, go ahead. Although it is a neighborhood that you must visit... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
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.
