Paris lives up to its reputation as a museum city: as we stroll through the city, we pass through the eras and make wonderful discoveries as we set out to conquer the rich heritage of the City of Light. And with each arrondissement having its own history and atmosphere, it's a pleasure to meet the different worlds that together make up the whole of Paris.

On the Left Bank, the 14th arrondissement is one of those Parisian neighborhoods where modern meets historic. This is where you'll find the capital's tallest skyscraper, the Tour Montparnasse, but it's also where you can delve into the bowels of Paris by visiting the catacombs. The 14th arrondissementis also the stronghold of artists past and present, and here we find ourselves at the crossroads between the typical Paris of yesteryear and the industrial era, of which Gustave Eiffel is the standard-bearer and the contemporary.
