Great for a bike ride. Parking is free during the day, a major win for Paris! A little scary if you are walking it alone at night...FYI.

One of the spectacular parks developed during the Hausmann era, lots to enjoy here, beautiful flowers and trees, fountains, peace and quiet. And a cool residential neighborhood around.

Fairly big and well kept park with a large lake that attracts lots of birdlife, including swans. Really nice to have a relaxing walk away from the historic centre and tourists.

This is a good place for a stroll or to take a packed lunch or picnic and watch theomnipresent joggers. If you're here it's worth heading across to the Cite Universitaire to see Le Corbusier's Swiss Pavillion and Maison du Bresil which are close by.

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
