Saint-Germain-des-Prés Food & Cultural Walking Tour
In Saint-Germain des Prés, in the 6th arrondissement, beats the artistic heart of Paris. This very old neighborhood has been hosting for centuries the main thinkers, intellectuals and musicians of Paris. From Voltaire the political thinker to Serge Gainsbourg the singer, from Jean-Luc Godard the director to Jean-Paul Sartre the philosopher, Saint-Germain des Prés remains haunted by this highly cultural and intellectual atmosphere.
WHAT TO EAT?
In Saint-Germain des Prés, most of the artisans we will visit have been there for decades. Their history and products have made their reputation in this very bourgeois but lively neighborhood. A must eat in Saint-Germain des Prés: the historical Poilâne bakery, opened in 1932.
During our Food Tour, after having met in a typical café, we will enjoy the products from a very famous bakery, an historical cheese shop, a small olive oil producer, a traditional butcher and few other places for sweets! In total, we will have 8 different stops and food tastings.
