Experience Bohemian Paris
When you walk the streets of Saint Germain, atop the cobblestone streets with vermilion colored geraniums overflowing in window boxes overhead, you get a strong sense why Hemingway made this area his home. The 6th arrondissement of Paris has seen a recent gentrification, and while Chanel stores and high rents are replacing quaint bookstores, the area is steeped in history and still retains much of its charm. On a walking tour with Urban Adventures, explore the boho area of Saint Germain and the winding medieval streets of Paris, delight in a charcuterie plate with French meats and cheeses, and enjoy a glass of pastis, an anise-flavored spirit and apéritif. You'll stroll through the romantic Jardin du Luxembourg and quickly learn why for many, this is one of the most beloved areas in Paris.
