Montparnasse, Paris

4.1
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.

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