Artistic • Catacombs • Crepes
In the early 1900s, the artist Picasso chose this Left Bank neighborhood as his home, and other creatives like Dali, Cézanne, Sartre and Hemingway soon followed. Their artistic and literary influences remain to this day, and visiting the local cemetery puts you near some of their remains (if you're into that kind of stuff). For a walk on the darker side, the Paris catacombs is a short walk away, and is filled with skulls and bones — no, not Yale's secret society. Nights are lively at clubs under the Montparnasse Tower, and every day, Rue du Montparnasse offers a variety of Breton creperies that locals and visitors celebrate as France's best.
