Welcome To Montparnasse

Many of the hotels in Montparnasse are close to the Bienvenue Metro Station, giving locals and visitors easy access to much of the city. The area is now rather modern, but some trendy cafes, which were around in the early part of the 20th century, are still a feature of Montparnasse, particularly along the Boulevard du Montparnasse and artists are still attracted to the area.
