Boulevard St Germain is like most main streets in Paris - full of churches, shops, cafes, restaurants and statues. It’s not really a separate tourist attraction and you wouldn’t go out of your way to come here, but if you’re in the area, a nice...More

Monuments, shopping, food, coffee, history...it all can be found along this very long boulevard that forms an arc throughout the central Left Bank. Lots of public transit options.

ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
