Left Bank (Rive Gauche) is the southern bank of the river Seine in Paris. Here, you’ll find the river flows roughly westward, cutting the city in two. The area is widely known for its once famous inhabitants, such as celebrated artist Pablo Picasso, who lived on the Left Bank throughout the war years.

When you visit now, Left Bank (Rive Gauche) is an affluent neighborhood of middle class homes, shopping boutiques, and restaurants, and also encompasses many of the city’s most renowned attractions. You’ll find the iconic Eiffel Tower, the creative hub of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, and the Latin Quarter, which holds some of the most stunning architecture in Paris.

  • The square Roger Stéphane, formerly square Récamier, until in 2008, is a quiet square of the 7th arrondissement of Paris, located at 7 Street Récamier. Located at the end of rue Recamier square was built on a place where once stood the convent of the Abbey - aux-Bois where Madame Récamier was removed to finish his days. It presents itself as a garden of flowering terraces of Japanese lilac. There is a fountain, a waterfall basin, a huge tree, a weeping beech, of plants such as rhododendrons, magnolias, the periwinkles, and Honeysuckles, heaths. The Recamier square was renamed on behalf of Roger Stéphane by the Mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoe on October 22, 2008.

  • Highly recommend making a walking tour along the left bank of the Seine in order to enjoy the Latin quarter, la Tour Eiffel, museums, churches, gardens... and admire the architectural beauty of its streets and buildings. Also worth a go on a ride on the famous bateaux parisiennes to admire the cityscape from the River (we went at sunset and we loved it).
