We visited:

Hotel Recamier
Rue Servandoni
Place St. Sulpice
L'eglise St. Sulpice
Cafe de la Mairie du VI
173 Boulevard Saint-Germain
L'eglise St. Germain-des-Pres

Hotel Recamier is a very tall but narrow building on a side street from St. Sulpice.  It is currently under construction, and is older, yet looks well maintained.  The next street down is Rue Servandoni, which is a very quiet street with cute shops.  Despite traffic, the entire area seemed very good for walking, particularly around St. Sulpice.  St. Sulpice has many shops, and a large fountain in the center.   It is not surprising that the area is important in Nightwood, and many of the locations have been mentioned already in the book.

  1. St. Germain de Pres is a beautiful and large church that rests in its own square, or "place" in the St. Germain area. It has several stained glass windows inside, as well as a number of beautiful wall murals. This church, though not the church that the doctor frequents(Church de St. Sulpice) is located in the heart of the St.Germain area, where a significant portion of Nighwood's plot takes place.
