Oscar Wilde, who adored luxury and beauty, chose to live in Saint-Germain des Pres -and died there. He was right: Saint Germain is stylish, cosmopolitan, but at the same time still very French and authentic, bursting with historical buildings, restaurants, famous cult-cafes, and upmarket boutiques. In an easy-to-walk neighborhood, we’ll follow the trail of artists and intellectuals in what was once just a small market village centered around the Benedictine abbey of Saint-Germain and later became the epicenter of Parisian culture and art.

The sites we will visit include, amongst others, the Abbey Church--now the oldest in Paris, Les Deux Magots, which opened in 1912 and whose former patrons are a veritable “who's who” of the existential movement, the tiny place Furstenberg--The Age of Innocence movie location and one of Paris’ most scenic spots , the Musee Delacroix --located in the painters’ last residence, and some popular streets such as Rue de Buci or Rue du Commerce Saint Andre.  A vibrant neighborhood that most Parisians would dream to call home!
