We stayed nearby and very much enjoyed strolling the rue de Buci. Comfortable, relaxed, authentic. We enjoyed some great restaurants and of course stopped for gelato and macarons after dinner. In addition to the food markets, there are also great shops to peruse.

Several nice stores, a very nice Paul bakery, around the corner from Eglise St. Germain des Pres and great vibe. Comfortable, quiet, authentic and affordable. 10 minutes from Notre Dame and miles away in terms of quiet.

Rue de Buci is a classic left bank experience - not just for tourists and visitors to Paris but for locals too. The market gives an extra buzz but even at other times the street has lots to eat and do while you watch the world go by - especially on fashion week. As we stayed in the street it... More

Wonderful variety of food for pick-up--meat, cheese, fruit, sea food, bread, vegetables. A great way to get a picnic for a day of walking around Paris. There are patisseries and wine stores and a supermarket there. And it's where the French shop.

I've been staying at Rue de Buci for quite sometime now, every year I go and visit Paris and I kept going back at the same apartment because of where it is located. The feeling of you belong is a great feeling for me. This street market is awesome, fruits and vegetables are so fresh and delicious. If any of... More

Loved the markets of rue de Buci. We were here daily as it was within easy walking distance from our apartment hotel in Saint Germain des Pres. We would buy our rhone wine, breads, cheese and pastries and also found a lovely butcher shop for fresh french ham and pates. Love it!! So Parisian.

An amazing little stretch of quintessential 6th Arrondissement. We love so many of Paris' quartiers, but this area is why we come to Paris! Some of our best times in the city have been spent strolling along Rue de Buci and its surrounds, searching for the perfect rillettes or sidewalk coffee, or simply taking in the loveliness of it all.

Great little street that is full of cafés, bars and restaurants with lots of little interesting shops nearby. The area is our favourite part of Paris with lots of opportunities to sit outside the cafés and pretend you are a Parisien. Great place to go when you are looking for a break from monuments and museums. There are often buskers... More

Walk the streets in this area, and you will find the charming market which spills out onto the street. The fruits, veggies, and seafood are fantastic. Bakeries, too. While not a specified building, this market is great fun, and at night, when the market is done, the streets are filled with cafes, bars, and music!

I always go back to the 6eme when I visit Paris as I lived here for many years. I was recently in the city of lights and went back to my favourite spots. Spent some time in the Marche rue de Buci looking through the flower shop, the restaurants, the bookstores and the bars. Wonderful. Check out the Amorino ice... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
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 musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
