Consistently ranked as one of the world's leading tourist destinations, Paris charms travelers with its blend of old-world charm and wholehearted embrace of the contemporary and innovative. Beautiful year-round, and with enough monuments, shopping, and culture to keep any visitor entertained for days, discovering Paris is more a matter of discovering the part of you celebrated in Paris' promenades and alleyways.
Saint-Germain-des-Pres – Luxembourg
From its upscale art galleries and chic boutiques to its legendary cafes and promenades, the Saint-Germain-des-Pres – Luxembourg area is one the most celebrated in Paris' 17 arrondissements (neighborhoods). Saint-Germain-des-Pres hotels are never more than a few blocks from a fragrant French bakery (boulangerie) or sweets shop (patisserie). Bookstores, bistros, and wine bars are filled with the vibrant energy of Parisian college students. Hotels near Saint-Germain-des-Pres share access to the Jardin Luxembourg, which is a massive public park featuring neat rows of trees and well-groomed paths, as well as an expansive play area for children. The nearby Musee d'Orsay, housed in a converted Belle Epoque train station, celebrates the city's stunning contribution to painting–including Impressionism and Post-Impressionism—in a bizarrely beautiful setting. Be sure to join the visitors giving their feet a rest on the broad marble steps out front with a chocolate croissant or baguette while a band of street musicians provides some cheap entertainment. With Saint-Germain-des-Pres vacation packages, you've got easy access to Parisians' favorite places to relax and enjoy some of the finest things their fine city has to offer.
