Are you ready to venture into some of the more intriguing areas of Paris? Embark on a tour of the areas surrounding Gare Montparnasse and Porte de Versailles—we promise you’ll enjoy it.
When exploring the neighborhoods near Gare Montparnasse, a hotel close by will save you some extra Metro trips.
The Paris Métro is a great way to get around Paris. When you stay near Porte de Versailles, or Gare Montparnasse about 3.5 km away, you’ll have easy access to the rest of the city. From these stations it’s a quick walk to several parks in the area, among them Parc Georges-Brassens, named for the poet and singer. Enjoy a picnic lunch under the gazebo, or walk over the river bridge and listen to the running water. Ready to go sky high? Step out of the Porte de Versailles, and just a kilometre away is Aerophile, where you can board a hot-air balloon and rise up over the city—below you will be the River Seine, and you’ll be able to see the Eiffel Tower, too.
Also nearby is the Marché aux Puces de la Porte de Vanves—the famous Paris flea market! Here is the place to come for some of the most astonishing local art, antiquities, produce, and more. Do you need furniture for your garden? It’s here. Eighteenth-century toys? They’re also here. Just about anything you could ever hope to find will be right at your fingertips; you may never want to leave.
You don’t have to leave if you stay in a Porte de Versailles hotel, and booking your trip with Expedia.ca means you’ll have more money to put toward an extended vacation. That’s a longer stay in a hotel in Paris, along with more time to explore, play, and shop. And why not? This is your vacation.
