Quartier Montparnasse, Paris

4.1
Once a labyrinth filled with artists' studios and roaring cafes, most of Quartier 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. Using our international travel planner, Paris attractions like Quartier Montparnasse can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
