A nice landmark on the beginning of the boulevard, right across the Pont-Neuf. From it the beautiful Bd St Michel goes down to the Luxembourg gardens.

As the bustling center of entertainment for the
residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon
never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional
cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets
surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide
eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just
next door and the prototypical terraced French
brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this
