Montparnasse, Paris
(4.1/5 based on 950+ 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.

  • MONTPARNASSE was the center of the art world 50 years between 1890 and 1930. It is in this neighborhood than PICASSO, MODIGLIANI, MATISSE, CHAGALL, COLLEGE passed, HEMINGUAY FUJITA and so many others... the carrefour vavin with its 4 cafes famous. THE DOME 1896, THE SECT 1924, LA ROTONDE1900, LA COUPOLE 1926.oui that were the center of the world.
