Overview

Favourite area of literary and artistic figures like Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Simone de Beauvoir, Pablo Picasso or Jim Morrison, Saint-Germain has fascinated generations of bohemians since the 1920s. This tour takes you back in time and reveals some of the places artists mostly appreciated, but also allows you a contemporary view on this area that is nowadays one of the most sophisticated in Paris.

The equally refined culinary delights you’ll find on the way will make you understand why we call this tour "exquisite".

• Admire the most typical haussmannian architecture that makes Paris look like Paris
• Discover writers’ favourite cafés at the beginning of the 1900s
• Get exclusive behind the scenes access to the oldest and most famous bakery in town
• Walk along one of the last medieval streets left in this area
• Indulge yourself with an exquisite selection of French desserts, cheese and charcuterie
