This is the kind of view I really enjoy in old Paris, and other places in France... you should go for a walk to the next "arrondissement' " 13th where I stay, and enjoy the little streets of La Butte aux Cailles.
I'm just 4 stations from Montparnasse, but actually I'm in Boston, going to Montreal tomorrow ! Enjoy Paris ! I'll pass by around the 11th... for 3 days max...
Europe.... having lived there I understand the attraction of these old old neighborhoods
Still for me I love the inaccessible big country places were you can see forever.
This is a great picture connected with memories of home for me
