If you are a fan of Serge, this is the place for you. Come and see the memorials and art that the faithful have left. Otherwise, not so interesting. This is simply where he lived.

If you’re a fan of either Serge Gainsborough or graffiti then you’ll like this quiet street, just a stone’s throw from Musee d’Orsay. If you’re a fan of both, then you might well explode!! There is better graffiti in Paris (check out the work next...More

Understandably there isn't much to this as this sight other than the graffiti and tributes but it's worth a visit if you're in the area and a fan of Gainsbourg. The graffiti is cool and obviously Gainsbourg themed, we were staying not far from this...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is

ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
