Our hotel was just off St. Germain so we walked up and down this street looking at all the shops. The street has many high end shops and affordable shops too. Also many places to grab a bite

Restaurants, bars, chocolatiers, historic cafes and churches mixed with modern French brand-name shops makes Boulevard St. Germain a nice place to spend some time within the Left Bank districts of St. Germain or Latin Quarter. Musee National du Moyen Age (formerly Musee de Cluny) and Musee d'Orsay are within short walking distance of Boulevard St. Germain, likely making this a... More

I keep returning to this area, experiencing all that has to offer: from sitting in a cafe avoiding the 'mad' French men to relaxing in a little park, staring at the demonstrators or shopping for clothes or cakes in the numerous places off this major Parisian route. The best place in Paris.

This is a great boulevard to walk and explore. Lots of the major French stores are located here so it is a must see. During the week is a little less hectic, however Saturday is just madness with people everywhere!

My wife and I found St. Germain by accident and were surprised to find that the boulevard was lined with amazing shops - clothing, chocolate, shoes, jewelry and some inexpensive restaurants. Much better than the Champs or hoping to come across the occasional retail 'find' on a side street.

I stayed at a French hotel chain (ACCOR group) close to La Sorbonne in the St. Germain area in May 2007 (not 2013). Not that far from the main Paris attractions. Plenty of restaurants, etc. Always a park nearby in Paris.and of course the Paris subways are very good. Also close to the Marais district. So just walking around is... More
