Old world charm (XII-XVIIth century), tiny streets and mix parisian/tourists venues: Café life, some street markets.
This is probably the Left Bank’s most colorful neighborhood.
It’s also the heart of France’s publishing world, a great mix of artist sensibility and upscale living. Many good shops
can be found in the small streets of Saint Germain, and the Jardins du Luxembourg offer a great respite from the hustle and
bustle of the city.
The area goes all the way to the Seine river, and is home to many (and we mean many) good 3 stars hotels.
Don’t miss a stroll down the “quais” overlooking the Seine river and Notre-Dame cathedral.
