Tips from locals
One of the most famous place in the city. If you’d like walk around, I suggest you choose the University, Jacob or Seine streets rather than the boulevard Saint-Germain (a bit crowded).
A visit to the area should begin with the church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Its tower and nave constitute some of the oldest Parisian vestiges of Romanesque architecture (11th and 12th centuries). Music lovers will appreciate its rich musical programme. Amongst the luxury boutiques and art galleries…
St Germain des Prés is one of the best places to walk and go out at night. I strongly recommend any guests to visit this nice part of the capital. Café de Flore is one of the most famous cafés in Paris.
