St. Germain des Près

This is the best-known, most visited part of the Sixth. The reason is that it’s a mix of chic and commercial, plus central and beautiful. Highlights here include the picture-perfect, quiet area around Place de Furstemberg, the very old church after which the quarter is named, Café de Flore, Café des Deux Magots (don’t bother eating at these institutions. The food is pricey. Instead, enjoy a drink on the terrace), Rue Bonaparte, Rue Jacob, and Rue de l’Université. Quaint rue de Buci is filled with tons of touristy restaurants and bars, and it gets loud.
