Find a hotel and stay a few days. Walk up and down one of the oldest streets in Paris. The shops and food are magnificent. The museums are only a few steps off the street or Musee Delacroix at one end... it is a place...More
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
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.
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
