We travelled with Ouigo from Gare Montparnasse, Hall 2. Worst train exeprience ever. First a lot of stairs, no escalators, and a long way to go from Metro Line 4. Then, for no reason, people (100ds) had to stock to wait for something. Then they...More

Getting to and from the Gar Montparnasse is a bit challenging these days outside of the station as workers have the streets and sidewalks torn up to work underground. Take care when walking towards the shopping center and tall building!

We went to this station mainly to see the works of Vasarely on the walls but due to the construction work going on, we could see only one. It is a very big and very busy train station with lots of facilities. You can find...More

We arrived here by taxi. It is not a huge station and there are not many amenities. Plan to arrive about 25 min before your scheduled departure. Be sure you know the LAST stop on your route. For example- we were going to Biarritz, but...More

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
historical monuments and treasures. In between lie
adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small
