14TH ARRONDISSEMENT OF PARIS GUIDE: SPEND LESS, DO MORE

Welcome to the 14th Arrondissement

14th-Arr-Montparnasse-Tower-in-ParisBest known for the Montparnasse tower and cemetery and the underground Paris Catacombs and museum, this largely residential and lively neighbourhood, located on the outer left bank of the Seine River, contains a number of destinations and attractions that are sure to make your stay memorable.

Visit the public square located at Place Denfert-Rochereau. As the home of the bronze statue known as the Lion of Belfort, a smaller replica of the more widely known sandstone sculpture created by the designer of the Statue of Liberty, this scenic area is a great place to simply relax or enjoy the lively cafes, shops and fresh produce that surround. Or take a stroll through Rue Daguerre street market, where you will find fresh seafood, cheese and bread among other appetising delicacies. As the market’s opening hours vary, be sure to consult the website in advance so you won’t be disappointed. Or head to one of this neighborhood’s many flea markets for unique and inexpensive souvenirs.

Take a walking tour of the neighbourhood to find out more
