The 14th arrondissement in the south of Paris on the left bank is not one of the most touristy arrondissements in Paris, being above all residential, but it has many bars and restaurants in its lively Denfert-Rochereau area. However, the 14th arrondissement has a number of interesting sites for tourists: the Montparnasse cemetery, the 2nd largest in the inner city, renowned for its beautiful funeral architecture; the Montsouris Park, a beautiful 15-hectare green lung, landscaped at the end of the 19th century; the international university campus, a huge campus that has been hosting students from all over the world for several generations already; the Porte de Vanves flea market where one can always find an interesting item... Finally, the 14th arrondissement also has many local shops, including a good number of delicatessen and caterers, not to mention the many charming hotels that have a real cachet while remaining at affordable prices.

When to go to Paris?

It goes without saying that Paris lives all year round, but if you are targeting a particular activity or event, you will have to choose your period. Here are some tips on when to visit Paris.

High tourist season: from May to September, tourists flock in great numbers. It is during this period that the climate is the mildest and many festivals and events take place, such as Roland Garros or the Fête de la Musique. Note that in August, Parisians leave the city for a holiday, which gives a strange atmosphere. Many shops are closed and only the tourist centres are lively. The Christmas holiday season is also very popular, especially for the illuminations and animated shop windows of department stores.

Medium tourist season: in October-November and from March to April, tourism slows down slightly, but not the influx. Indeed, Paris is a dense city and there are almost always people in the transport sector and in the centres of attraction

Low tourist season: there are not really any, except in January and February, months in which hotel rates fall slightly. Paris attracts tourists all the time!
