Most often the only time any tourist ever journeys out to the 14 Arrondissement is to visit the Montparnasse tower and then quickly returns to city center. Next time I suggest that you meander slowly through this neighborhood before heading right back to the hustle and bustle.
One of my favorite memories of our last trip to Paris was the location of an amazing flat we rented in Edgar-Quinet within the 14th Arrondissement. Every Wednesday and Saturday you can open the windows to an outdoor market that literally appeared overnight. I could easily get use to the grocery market coming to my front door twice a week. The girls focused on the clothes, where I am all about the food!
