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
Obviously it is just the exterior of a house but the graffiti on the front is great to look at and read. It would be amazing if you could look inside but it was lovely just to stand outside of the place and imagine his...More
It's just the exterior of the building. But the graffiti changes and it's nice to read the messages people leave. Can't help but be curious about the interior and what seems to be a very rare backyard with trees! It's in a posh neighborhood on...More
By pure chance we stumbled across the Maison de Serge Gainsbourg, and Jane, on our first night in Paris, close to our hotel on the Quai Voltaire.

Only discovered this from a left field flyer and discovered it was close to the cafe where we'd had a liquid lunch. Interesting, witty, parts very skilful and a lot of recognisable references. If you know anything about the man or his times then it's...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 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.
