Just returned tonight after a full week in Paris. Loved the City but especially this neighborhood. Close to many, many restaurants. Can walk to the Seine in about 15 minutes and close to the Latin Quarter. Also a very safe area.

The 6th Arrondissement is full of history and gardens, and you’re bound to find something to keep you occupied for a few hours. This includes the Luxembourg Gardens and Palace, Museum, multiple churches and a great shopping district. Well worth a look around.

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 neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
