 MONTPARNASSE & LUXEMBOURG DISTRICTS

 

The Montparnasse Tower dominates the whole district with its mighty height of 210 metres. Well known as the artists district, Montparnasse used to be frequently visited by many major artists of the 20th Century, such as Picasso, Soutine, Foujita, Modigliani, Braque, Man Ray... From this rich past, Montparnasse has thus conserved artist workshops, famous cafés and brasseries, such as the Closerie des Lilas or the Dôme. This Parisian distrct boasts important cultural settings with several points of interest such as the Panoramic Observatory of the Montparnasse Tower, the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens just a few steps from Villa Luxembourg, the Montparnasse cemetery, the key entrance into the Catacombes, the Bourdelle Museum, the Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art, and many more.

 

 

 THE LUXEMBOURG GARDENS

The gardens, which cover 25 hectares of land, are split into French gardens and English gardens. Between the two lies a geometric forest and a large pond. There is also an orchard, an apiary, spacious greenhouses each blossoming with a collection of breathtaking orchids and rose gardens. So, in conclusion, the only thing you must do in the Luxembourg gardens is to relax, stroll around the gardens, and admire their beauty!
