The rue Bonaparte is a street lined with some pretty pricey antique and boutique shops. Good place to browse and squint at some eye watering prices.

We walked down this street and came upon an art supply store. With all of the art inspiration in Paris I wanted to buy a pencil, eraser and pad of paper to continue working on my art. The staff was very helpful.

This is a classic street in Paris. Great shops and restaurants but my favorite part is the bronze statue of the woman at the top of the street, holding her face in her hands. Love it!

Nice through street on the Left Bank, linking the Seine with Blvd. St. Germaine. Lined with restaurants (some quite good) and unusual shops, some selling expensive art and antiques. Noisy traffic.

For the shopaholics, it's a must-see place. The streets are clean, organized and there are many branded shops along the way for browsing and buying. You cal also stay there, I could see there are some hotels and stuff around.

Rue Bonaparte runs north/south in the 6th Arrondissement between the River Seine and the Luxembourg Gardens. Its narrow sidewalks and busy vehicular traffic don't make it the most pleasant stroll. But the street offers art galleries, antique shops, classy boutiques, hotels, bookshops, beautiful apartment buildings...More

W walked up Rue Bonaparte from the river to Sait Germain des Pres passing many interesting art galleries on the way. The pavements are extremely small and the road is busy.

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
