The chic Saint-Germain-des-Près area is home to posh shops, eateries, and the medieval Église de Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris's oldest church. Gallery-lined streets lead to the Musée d’Orsay, famed for its Impressionist art. Sidewalk booksellers sell vintage titles on the banks of the Seine, while Boulevard Saint-Germain draws literature fans to iconic cafes like Flore, once favored by writers such as Hemingway.
