Što ćete raditi

St Germain de Prés became the centre of intellectual and cultural life of Paris in the 1920s. It was here that all the great artists, writers and thinkers gathered to share ideas.

In later years this neighbourhood would come alive as jazz music could be heard from the smoky basement bars and clubs.

We will set off in the heart of St Germain de Près with its ancient church and fascinating history . We will stroll down the narrow streets that inspired Balzac and Gertrude Stein and see the studio of famous fashion photographer Man Ray.

We will walk down the streets where jazz musicians Miles Davies, Billie Holiday and Dizzy Gillespie performed and mingled with the locals.

We will see the cafés where Jean Paul Sartre and Albert Camus met and we will see where F Scott Fitzgerald lived at the height of his success.

We will stop at the hotel where Oscar Wilde spent his last days and walk the same streets as he did when he was spurned by London society.

We will visit the beautiful church of San Suplice featured in Dan Brown’s Da Vinci code and we will stop to admire Delacroix’s beautiful murals inside.

Finally, we will walk in Hemingway’s footsteps as described in “A Moveable Feast” to the Luxembourg Gardens.

I invite you into the world of Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris”.

I live near Sacré Coeur and I also do the Famous Artists of Montmartre Experience .

I love sharing the history, stories and anecdotes with visitors from all over the world and I take pleasure in revealing the secrets and treasures that Paris has to offer.

Eileen has a passion for the writers and artists the left bank, and it was great to see so many places where they hung out, lived, and enjoyed.

Eileen’s tour was such a delight. We spent two hours meandering through Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the 6eme. We got the Baldwin, Hemingway, and F Scott, but she went out of her way to highlight the literary women of the era who have often gone un- or under-appreciated. We also ended up making great friends on the tour. Eileen is so personable and the tour felt like a friend telling you stories—she heard our interests immediately and responded to them with what I’m sure is her signature enthusiasm! It was a lovely way to discover the quartier and the literary history of this part of Paris.

Eileen is a warm and interesting woman who provided a great talk as one walked around the left bank showing the locations which featured in the lives of the writers and artists of the early to mid twentieth century .Eillen had lots of little stories and also used her tablet where she had loaded some illustrative pictures of those one was hearing about . Enjoyable and informative

Eileen is very knowledgeable and fun. She brought along photos to help bring life to the tour, and it provided the perfect introduction to the Left Bank for us!
