After the busy Boulevard St Michel one finds oneself in this haven of quietude. The “bassin”, totally beautiful, the pond with its surrounding chairs on which you can sit and contemplate regardless of the weather, the puppet shows........a must for everyone to experience.

Make sure to spend a few hours here, sitting, relaxing, walking... You will enjoy here in peace in beautiful gardens, fountains, statues and ducks.

The Medici Fountain is my personnel favorite spot in Paris. At every turn these Gardens are a delight.

Really pleasant to have a walk on a sunny spring day after having lunch. Was really close to our hotel Michelet and was a must see.

We got caught in a student snowfall and walked through the gardens with a lite dusting of snow. It was amazing. This is a must see for anyone visiting Paris.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
