Stopped here on my way to Orly. Nice neighborhood, safe and sound. A lot of shopping and dining opportunities. Popular public square, next to the famous Catacombs museum. Easy access with public transportation.

This area is great very convenient if you arrive at Gard du Nord or from Orly airport it is easily reached. The area has lots of shops and cafes and you can get into the centre of Paris easily on the metro. Would recommend it a real taste of residential Paris.

It is a very lovely neighbourhood, lots of restaurants, is close to Montparnasse Tower and Paris Catacombs museum. Some history: The square is named after Pierre Denfert-Rochereau (French commander who organized the defense at the siege of Belfort during the Franco-Prussian War) dominated by the small version of the Lion of Belfort.

The square and statue itself are visually attractive. The surrounding area is lively and "authentic". Rue Daguerre is a lively neighborhood street with a nice feel to it. - Lots of neighborhood cafes, food stalls, and shops. Entrance to Catacombs is on square. Also has train and bus station just off square with busses to De Gaulle and suburbs

Staying in Montparnasse

Neighbourhood Profile
Montparnasse
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 historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the centre of Paris this neighbourhood has something for every hour of the day.
