A literary stroll in Saint-Germain-des-Prés [Photos + map]

Somehow, I had never been to Paris; despite living in London for the past five years and being just two hours away by train. I finally made it two weeks ago, but only for a weekend.

I spent my Saturday sight-seeing, just to cross the main spots off my list, and decided to treat my Sunday as a free day. I already knew what I wanted to do: walk around Saint-Germain-des-Prés. For those who don’t know, it is the neighbourhood where many major writers used to live.

It was a cloudy day, but the rain didn’t make it to the ground until late in the afternoon. I started my stroll at Saint-Germain-des-Prés underground station (Line 4). As you exit, you immediately find yourself in front of a very historic restaurant: Les Deux Magots.

The rest you can enjoy in the gallery below. And, in case you find yourself in Paris, feel free to use my Google map.
