  • The 15th is a real folksy area of Paris, where real Parisians really live, not the 1% living in enormous buildings. Lots of cool restaurants, and open air markets. It's not really a place for tourists...  more »
  • 15th arrondissement is not tourist attractions, but many Japanese live in Baker was there. Better security, to reserve a hotel too high and one area I think.

  • The 15th is the most populated of the boroughs with 239.000 inhabitants and probably the largest. It is located on the left bank in the South West of Paris part. Its limit in the North East are the avenues of Suffren and Saxony, with the 7 district and the Eiffel Tower and the Montparnasse boulevard; South, it is limited by the device boulevard, which dates back to 1970 and Issy les Moulineaux and Vanves communes with an outgrowth to the heliport and Aquaboulevard. Finally, to the East it is limited by the Montparnasse railroad tracks and the 14 district. It was created when, under Napoleon III, the capital joined the neighbouring towns of Grenelle and Vaugirard located beyond the wall of the farmers General, as well as a part of Issy Les Moulineaux, in 1860. As the main routes were naturally converging toward the center of Paris, Haussmann has created a cross Road East West in the new districts of the South to facilitate communications; It's as well as the streets of Vouillé East and the Convention to the West from the Mirabeau bridge, have been created as an extension of the streets of Tolbiac in the 13 th and Alesia in the 14 th. These pathways are shaded, very shopping and lively, with many street markets. In the North South direction, 3-way structure the district from East to West, the street of Vaugirard, busy shopping, a rather residential Lecourbe Street and avenue Félix Faure, residential and bourgeois. The style of the buildings is mainly "Haussmann". To the North, the boulevards of Grenelle and Garibaldi, are important traffic lanes with the line # 6 subway air on some sections. The neighborhood said "Bleach" the wharf, along the Seine André Citroen recalls that this sector was industrial from the 20 th century. On the industrial wasteland of Citroën, creates the big André Citroën Park, which is a green lung in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, this innovative concept space, is poorly maintained and degrades over time. The attraction of the Park is also a tethered balloon can carry 30 passengers and that rises above the Park. The view from the top is magnificent but the ball can rise only in certain weather conditions, which limits its activities to 12 euros per people or 6 euros for children under 12. The European "Georges Pompidou" hospital is located right next to the Park. Further north, along the Seine left bank, the Beaugrenelle sector is a planning area that dates back to 1978 and at l ' time had been of challenges to the fact of the towers of the Seine; But this sector has been restructured in poles with multistoried buildings, hotels and a mall reopened in 2013. It is today very living with a lot of boutiques and shops. The Montparnasse train station, located in the North East of the borough, whose exploitation began in 1840, is a hub of activity with high SNCF traffic. The present station dates from 1960 and underwent renovation because of the increase in traffic with about 54 million passengers in 2015. Apart from the area of Montparnasse where tourists come to see Paris of the top of the Tower, with its panoramic restaurant "The sky of Paris", other parts of the borough are not very tourist. In the South, the door of Versailles is a lively sector of the fact of the presence of the exhibition, where many activities take place and the great Dome, Hall very active. Around place Balard, to the South, the city of Paris attempted the re-development of the former little belt railroad to make a places to walk. But the result is rather disappointing by the lack of development of green space and quality. South East side, very nice Park "Georges Brassens" is a nice relaxing with all the weekend one market of old books and second-hand, the nearby halls. Access is via the Brancion Street and the station of Tram T3 "Brancion" for lovers of restaurants, there are neighborhoods where it is easy to find. Beaugrenelle sector around the metro station "Charles Michel" is filled in very varied cuisine such as Asian, French, Indian, Italian restaurants, etc. Further to the North around the Boulevard de Grenelle and Lourmel and Viala streets, many restaurants offer of French or Italian cuisine. Around Montparnasse, it is very easy to find the restaurant according to its tastes and its means; This sector is also convenient for leisure, bar, cinemas, theatres, etc.; He is especially close to the heart of Paris left bank. South East around the Georges Brassens Park and streets Brancion, Vouillé and Olivier de Serres, many restaurants offering all sorts of kitchens, allow to satisfy all tastes and all the awards. At the Center, the rue Vaugirard is busy shopping and many restaurants are established. The 15 th is very well served by subway lines, especially on the main arteries, already cited in the preamble. The T3 tram allows access to the places located to the South with many stations and up to the bridge of the Garigliano to the West. The bus No. 62 runs through the two streets of the Convention and of Vouillé, very convenient to go from West to East and vice versa.
