The ‘Monte Parnassus’, home to the Muses
Montparnasse is located on the Rive Gauche of the Seine, in the 14th arrondissement. Its name, which derives from the Monte Parnassus (in Greek mythology, the home of the nine Greek goddesses of art and science, the Muses), was given to the hill back in the XVII century by the students who used to go there to recite their poems.
The hill -levelled out in the XVIII century to build the Boulevard Montparnasse- was home to a number of cabarets and dance halls, bars and cafes, which date back to the French Revolution. During the XX century, Montparnasse became an ambitious goal for all artists, writers, sculptors, poets and composers of that time, including Picasso, Apollinaire, Ezra Pound, Chagall, Leger, Dalì, Matisse, Mirò and Hemingway.
Today, Montparnasse is an excellent place where to rent an apartment for either a short or a long stay and start exploring the many attractions of Paris. The main places of interest of this area are the Montparnasse tower, built in 1972, and its 210 metre high skyscraper, and the Cimetière du Montparnasse, where are buried people such as Charles Baudelaire, Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and Samuel Beckett.
Well served by a number of means of public transport, one can find numerous bus and metro stops (Montparnasse – Bienvenüe, Edgar Quinet, Vavin and Notre-Dame-des-Champs) here, that lead to practically every area of the city, as well as the Gare Montparnasse, where trains depart for Britain and TGVs leave for Tours, Bordeaux and Le Mans.
