Whether this is your first time in Paris's Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood or you already love this historic neighborhood, this tour is for you! I have so many fun things to show and great stories to tell that I'm sure you've never seen or heard. Join me for a guided walk through this area to see and hear about not only its famous landmarks but also its hidden treasures. If anyone ever told you that history is boring, you can be sure that they never studied the history of Saint-Germain-des-Prés! Whether it’s cavorting with revolutionaries, debating with philosophers or tucking into the 6th best macarons in France, this neighborhood has something for everyone.
