Montparnasse, Paris

(4.1/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Once a labyrinth filled with artists' studios and roaring cafes, most of Montparnasse was flattened during the 1960s to accommodate a train station and Tour Montparnasse, the only skyscraper in the main part of Paris. Over recent years, the area has evolved into a neighborhood where you can find reasonable short-term rentals, budget cafes, and a down-to-earth vibe that's missing from many of the trendier neighborhoods. Put Montparnasse into our Paris vacation generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
