Situated on the left bank of the River Seine, it contains most of the Montparnasse district. It is today best known for its skyscraper, the Tour Montparnasse, and its major railway terminus, the Gare Montparnasse. The district has traditionally been home to many artists as well as a Breton community, arrived at the beginning of the 20th century upon the creation of the Montparnasse railway terminus. The 14th arrondissement also contains the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, which is located near the Parc Montsouris and the Stade Charléty.

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

If you want to get a feel for how the real working class of Paris live, then head on over to the 14th. It's just south of the 6th. There are not a lot of 'sightseeng' spots to visit, except for the Montparnasse Tour which,...More

Visiting in the 14th Arrondissement brings you to the huge Montparnass Tower, but there's a lot more down here on the Left bank. This is an area loved by the locals, thus it's an area where you'll need to speak some French to get around...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,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
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
