The Montparnasse district

Posted by dan on November 27, 2010

Famous for its tower and an important travel hub, the Montparnasse area is a pleasant residential neighborhood with many brasseries, cafes and restaurants. It is adjoining the Saint-Germain des Pres area, and sights such as the Luxembourg Garden are a short walk away, but you could walk to any location on the Left Bank in 30-40 minutes. There is also good metro and bus access to all the places in Paris. Gare Montparnasse is one of the TGV fast train terminals, serving destinations in the west and south-west of France including Tours, Bordeaux, Rennes, Nantes and Saint Malo.
