Its districts

Among districts filled with charm, we can quote the island of the City and the island Saint-Louis, both placed on the edges of the Seine towards Notre-Dame of Paris. To see closer of the artists, we favor Montmartre, to plunge into the intellectual excitement of the capital, we go to the Latin Quarter, and to make a historic route between mansions, we opt for the Swamp. Other place of interest, Montparnasse, from now on business district, always cultivates a certain nostalgia to its hectic artistic period.
