"The 6th Arrondissement" Arrondissements - Sections of Paris Tip by Lady_Mystique
Arrondissements - Sections of Paris, Paris: 50 reviews and 87 photos
Favorite thing: The dividing line between the 5th and 6th is Blvd. St. Michel ("Boul Mich").
As you move west into the 6th, the neighborhood becomes less of a student haven. Traditionally an area of the literati, bookstores, and publishers, it is now full of chic designer boutiques, antique shops, and galleries. Cafes and restaurants abound, and the rue de Buci has a popular food market.
Significant churches are St. Germain des Pres, the oldest church in Paris, and St. Sulpice.
The 60-acre Luxembourg Gardens provide a central and civilized oasis of green...a fresh-air respite for both residents and visitors.
Neighborhoods in the 6th include Saint-Germain-des-Pres, Beaux-Arts, the Odeon, Sevres-Babylone, Luxembourg, and part of Montparnasse.
