  • NOT the major landmarks of the French capital but definitely has the quintessential "Frenchness" one can enjoy having seen the big deal items on other occasions.  more »
  • This district looks more modern than the ones towards the center of the city. Montparnasse is the best area. Good subway stations and the tower. Catacombs are around here too  more »
