Located between the 6th and the 15th arrondisement and known as the intellectual neighbourhood in the 1920s-1930s, today it has several identities. The part towards Rue de Vaugirard has kept its original elegance and has many small book shops. The part towards Rue de Rennes has become home to shops for the young and their life-style. Architecture in the neighbourhood is typically Parisian with large windows on the lower floors and ever-smaller windows towards the upper floors. In the past the rooms under the roofs the "chambres de bonnes" were for the servants. Today traces of the areas bohemian past can still be found in the large bars and cafs where crowds of all ages and nationalities gather. Dont miss the famous Montparnasse cemetery, resting place of the great, French or not. There are good metro connections and pay-parking in the neighbourhood.
