St-Germain-des-Prés is steeped in literary and artistic history. Giants of both worlds, including Ernest Hemingway, Simone de Beauvoir, Picasso and Jean-Paul Sartre, have lived in and been inspired by the neighborhood. Today, the area is a lively gem with numerous upscale restaurants, bookstores and boutiques. The spirit of the French Revolution was born in the historic cafés that dot the neighborhood such as Café Procope, a Parisian institution established in the 17th century. The 6th arrondissement might be famous for these cafés, but the fabulous shopping in this area is a real treat. Enjoy exploring Boulevard Saint-Germain, Rue de Rennes, Boulevard du Montparnasse, Rue de Buci and the charming Cour du Commerce St-André. It is, however, the bookstores and small specialty shops that make the 6th truly one of a kind. St-Germain-des-Prés is the perfect place for a refined stay in Paris. Each street has a different history and walking tours are popular. It is also well served by metro and bus links.
