Saint-Germain has long been the center of Parisian cultural life, the area where noted philosophers, writers, artists, and politicians of many eras came to work and, seduced by the area’s creative energy, decided to stay for life. Some of them went on to create other countries; some of them made revolutions that would shape the world as we know it today. Traces of these activities are still visible and indeed radiant - we invite you to discover them with us.
On this 2-hour private guided walking tour you’ll visit churches that are more than a thousand years old, walk along the narrow medieval streets, and discover well hidden sites of incredible historical significance, that the uninitiated would never guess nor locate.
Admire Saint-Germain-des-Près, the oldest church in Paris, and the story of its conception
Discover Le Procope, the oldest café in Paris, where coffee was first served in this part of the world, as well as a revolution
Visit the École des Beaux-Arts, a famous art academy and the first museum in Paris (and indeed the world)
Fall in love with Rue Saint-André-des-Arts, a medieval street where poets, beggars, and kings lived as neighbors
