Nice cafes, and shops, easy to get around in. Not too touristy, so a visitor can get a real feel for the Paris that is truly Parisian. Great walking neighborhoods

The 15th Arrondissement or district is situated on the left bank of the river Seine and is well populated. Home to the Tour Montparnasse, paris's tallest skyscraper.

My first time in Paris but this location was close to public transport, an easy stroll to a number of important sites and home to a great variety of food/drink locations. Thoroughly recommend.

Pari's most populous Arrondissement, middle class residential. Not a lot for the tourist to see here, but if you want to see where real people live, take a look.

The 15th is a real folksy area of Paris, where real Parisians really live, not the 1% living in enormous buildings. Lots of cool restaurants, and open air markets. It's not really a place for tourists unless you want to get a feel of real...More

On the left bank of the Seine, you can find Tour Montparnasse, the tallest building in Paris. It's an attraction in itself, especially at night.

Yes, it's not tourist worthy. No high-end shops or monuments; It's a great place to live, but not to visit.
