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

One of the most vibrant street for Parisian life and cuisine. Many bistros, boullangeries and flower shops. I like having lunch on this street, you can observe people walking, singing, etc. It is a good Parisian mix.

Rue de Buci is and has for years been one of our favorite parts of Paris. Now mainly pedestrianised it is a great ramble. Road side coffee and watching the passing parade of often beautiful people is highly recommended - all size, shapes, colors, races and groups show off the rich tapestry that is modern Paris.

The Marché Rue de Buci is one of my favorite morning rituals when visiting Paris. The street has beautiful produce, breads, cheese, sausages, and flowers. My favorite vendor has a large rotisserie chicken oven. The roasting chickens rotate over a huge pan of potatoes that are basted by the drippings. Mmmmmm! The prices are a bit higher than Monoprix, but... More

This is a great s with terrasses, food stores, bookstores, over about 100 m. The atmosphere is very lively. Although the street is very crowded with tourists as well as with people living in the area, it still looks authentic and friendly.

The Marche rue de Buci is a lively area on the Rue de Buci in the 6th arrondissement. The food market is not bad, with fresh fruit, meats, fish, flowers & veg stalls. There are a number of bars, restaurants and cafes on the street as well. Great place to sit and have a drink and watch people go by.

Just OK for food. We loved sitting at cafes on rue de Buci. Five little dot thingies for the people watching and ambiance alone. But the restaurants immediately in the mostly pedestrian zone leave something to be desired. If you want to eat, get off of rue de Buci and try la Jacobine (great food). Also heard that Fish is...

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.
