By taking Rue de Grenelle, a stone's throw from the Palais Bourbon hotel, you will arrive in the centre of the Saint-Germain-des-Près neighbourhood. In the 20th century, it became one of the most famous centres of intellectual and artistic life in the capital, and subsequently the fashionable district. Especially in the after-war period, philosophers, poets, artists and writers like Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Boris Vian and Jacques Prévert held court at the Café de Flore and the Deux Magots, ensuring the neighbourhood's intellectual animation.
Its typical narrow streets such as Rue du Dragon or Rue des Saints-pères and its emblematic square give it a very characteristic atmosphere...
Today, the art galleries rub shoulders with fashion boutiques and gourmet restaurants.
