About the tour
A former aristocratic area, Saint Germain des Prés offers beautifully preserved streets filled with cafés such as Café de Flore and les Deux Magots where philosophers like Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir would spend days, but also studios for the artists such as Picasso and Delacroix!
The place to be after WW2, Saint Germain des Prés was the heart of the literary life and of the jazz scene of Paris. We will also see the oldest café of Paris where revolutionary members but also Benjamin Franklin would go and explore the former territory of the oldest abbey of Paris: Saint Germain des Prés!
