This extremely long boulevard covers a large area of the Left Bank through the 5th 6th and 7th. Some upscale shopping, some museums, lots of cafes and lots of traffic. Lots of bus lines.

This is a great place for walking and discovering. There is all that one can wish for in terms of food and shopping and the area links easily to other nearby neighbourhoods and metro stations.

It rained the entire time I was in Paris (January 2018). Cold and rainy, not much to enjoy. However, even with the inclimate weather, I had a decent walk along the BSG, although I had to walk fast and dodge umbrellas.

This very long boulevard traces an arc-like path through the inner Left Bank area so it includes a lot: Universities and book stores; movie theaters and cool cafes; historic restaurants; fancy apartments; and lots of shopping. Ride the bus and look out the windows.

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
