Top Five Reasons to Live in Paris Montparnasse

September 18, 2020
When people think of Paris, their minds almost automatically go to the likes of the Champs Elysées, Montmartre, Le Marais, and more. But there's one district that serves as much attention—Montparnasse! You can live out a Parisian lifestyle here as you can in the other neighborhoods. And it's just as beautiful and beguiling here as it is in the other parts of the French capital. Though perhaps the fact that it's not as famous as those other places is why it's a great place to move to? After all, you can live quietly and humbly in Montparnasse, even when it's still part of Paris.

Parisian Peaceful Escapes

Part of why Montparnasse would make a great home for you is that there are a lot of places to go to when you want to escape. Let's face it, Paris can be overwhelming. From working your butt off every day to facing hordes of tourists on weekends and the holidays, at times, you just need a break. And you can do so by spending quiet time in some peaceful places in this Parisian district. Take the Montparnasse Tower, for instance, which can give you a bird's eye view of the French capital. Or the Montparnasse Cemetery, a tranquil retreat that houses the remains of prominent novelists, artists, and more.
