Famous French café. Expect to see older cool French people and hip tourists come here. It’s a place to be seen so the price tag comes with it.

Department Store
“Two huge buildings and one building is for food and the other is for clothes. High end shop but worth going just to look. The food building is my favorite and there’s 4 floors. Each floor is dedicated to either wine, groceries, kitchen supplies and then furniture. Beautiful place ”

Bistro
“An iconic establishment. It serves to those seeking an original and hip atmosphere. Dating back to the Bohemian stage of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, La Palette is the Parisian Café to discover. ”

Garden
“Majestic park overlooking the Luxembourg Palace. A visit here is most enjoyable at any time of the year. So much to see: the ducks swimming in front of the enormous Medici Fountain, children sending an armada of small boats across the pond, the parade of sculptures of the queens of France, the manicured Palace gardens. Take a seat and enjoy the people-watching! You can also just relax, enjoy a sandwich or read a book (plenty of chairs and benches). To do some jogging this is also a great place! Free entrance.”
