It is beautiful indeed and the gardens make for the most scenic spot in Paris in our opinion. However, we weren’t able to go inside and visit the interior. If we were, my review would have most likely been a 5! The palace guards were...More

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

You can only visit the building with a government official invitation or during a small window of time when all government buildings are opened to the general public. Regardless. FREE. The beautiful gardens are free.
