Quartier Montparnasse

District Paris, France

The Parisian charm Quartier Montparnasse

This modern neighborhood is located between the 14th and 15th districts. It became famous during the Années Folles of Paris where everything was possible. Even today, some of its streets and cafés have saved the intellectual charm of a time. It is the ideal place to spend French evenings in its historic theaters and cabarets.

The first thing you have to do in Montparnasse is climbing its tower. On the 56th floor you will admire Paris from an incredible panoramic terrace. Climbing down you can explore the charm of this corner of Paris inside the cafés and the brasseries such as: the Closerie des Lilas or the Coupole, a place that has existed since 1927 with red velvet armchairs. These were the meeting point for writers and artists such as: Picasso, Modigliani and Joyce. If you love greenery and relax you have to visit the Jardin du Luxembourg and the Montparnasse monumental cemetery, where is buried Charles Baudelaire and other French literature's protagonists. Last but not least you have to visit the Musée du Montparnasse.
