It's really not that far, maybe a mile. Otherwise, you'll miss all the great shops (like Fragonard, a parfumerie) and restaurants (like Cafe de Flore, Brasserie Lipp and Les Duex Magots).

If you are after a great night of partying and a good time - Then this is the place for you. The eclectic atmosphere offers something for everyone – they say New York never sleeps well neither does St Germain. Whatever your taste you’ll find it there.

If you want quiet boutiques and an authentic shopping experience, ask the locals or the streets to shop n St. Germaine du pres. The LV here has no line! And touring the boutiques let you feel like a French girl!

This is one of the "hip" places in Paris. There are many shops and cafes which are all on the pricey side, but this is a great boulevard to walk and people watch. This is where the two famous literary cafes are located..Margot's and Flore where Hemingway and many others met to discuss ideas. Even if you do not eat or shop here you should at least take a walk down this street to be part of the Paris experience.

Active area - called "student/tourist" spot. Stayed very near to center - lots of restaurants, cafes to choose from.
