The Rue Jacob is but one of many cute quaint streets in the area. The only main "highlight" is at 56 rue Jacob. As sign on the outer wall indicates that in the late 18th century a hotel stood there and it was here that...More

Rue Jacob is another street in Paris with cafes, statues and old historic buildings. Same as most streets in Paris and not really a tourist attraction in its own right. Nice to walk down though if you’re in the area.

I'm a bit biased - I have an apartment on Rue Jacob. The street does not immediately strike you as a thing of beauty, but research the history (famous former residents) and look up at the buildings and you will begin to realise the history...More

Don't expect anything special about it. Yeah, it's pretty and nice, just not an exceptional one. A lot of shops, bars and stuff. So, good if you need/ want to buy goods or eat/ drink something.

First visited 20 years ago and fell in love with this quaint and typically Parisian street. Rue Jacob in the 6eme arrondisement is an elegant, lovely street in the center of Paris. It is close to the Seine and runs between Rue des Saints Peres...More

I do not consider Rue Jacob to be a "destination" street in Paris, but it is worth walking at least part of it when exploring elegant St. Germain des Pres. If I'm in the area, I like to window shop here, looking into art galleries,...More

This area really is a hidden gem. Beautiful boutique shops, restaurants, cafes, bars - it's literally like walking through an art gallery; everything is just so beautifully presented. Ask the cab driver to drop you anywhere; you won't be disappointed.

I walk this street every day and never fail to see something interesting. There are lots of small restaurants and shops and a great mix of locals and students attending Sciences Po. This street could easily fill your afternoon with lunching, shopping, and people watching.

This is a street to wander down window shopping. Ladure tea room on the corner of Rue Bonaparte. The tiny shop next door selling Art Deco and Retro jewellery is like a museum. English spoken but open from 14.00 onwards. Chic interesting shops and cafes....More
