It's a little out of the way, but the 14th has its charms. Certainly not as overwhelmed with tourists as other more convenient arrondisment, it has tranquil streets, a few interesting shopping stretches, a few good bakeries, smaller hotels, and The Cimetiere Montparnasse.

The big attractions here are the cafes where the artists used to hang out in the 1920s. Lots of history, and they are still great cafes with good food. Lots of pretty apartment buildings. And then there is the horrid urban renewal around the train...More

This was a wonderful neighborhood in which to stay. Easy access to the Metro, many charming cafes and restaurants, not overrun with tourists . . . we would certainly stay here again on a return trip.

This district looks more modern than the ones towards the center of the city. Montparnasse is the best area. Good subway stations and the tower

When in Paris, we mostly stay in a little flat in the left-bank 14th arrondissement near the Denfert-Rochereau metro and RER station, which is very handy if you travel by train. We like this residential arrondissement because, on the whole, it has a very friendly...More

This is not a tourist location, except for the catacombs. There are lots of parks here, quite a few restaurants and cafes which are particularly good because they exist for the locals, not tourists. The most well known attraction here is the Catacombs - an...More

Parc Montsouris, the market street near the 14th City Hall, historic restaurants and cafes along Blvd. Montparnasse, and best of all, south of the Blvd. are a bunch of artist loft apartment buildings, truly unique architecture. This area is off the beaten path, but worth...More

It's good to walk somewhere that Samuel Beckett spent his last leisurely days. Agreeable park, decent free toilets (by French standards of course), family atmosphere, and the surprise was a golden statue of Thomas Paine. (It's also near the Allée Samuel Beckett, which is marked...More

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,

parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
historical monuments and treasures. In between lie
adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small

Breakfast does not share the same status and virtue in Europe as it does in the US. I find that if you venture onto any commercial side street, not the major boulevards, you'll find a boulangerie with a few stools set up by... More
