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. Using our international travel planner, Paris attractions like Montparnasse can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

It's a 20-minute walk to the hotel, and I've been looking for a map of the bus stop for a while, and my aunt, who was waiting for the bus, was kindly asked in French, "Where are you going?" Don't you know how to get there? He said something like that and talked to me. Three French gentlemen who were talking nearby heard it and taught me how to get there in English. I came from the airport through the eastern part of Paris, but I found that the environment is obviously very good and the people living in this area are good.
