Country: France

Answers

very convenient and safe area for accomodation : 10/15mn from every happening spot in paris (shopping, restaurants, museums etc.)
The boulevard on the Left Bank, stretches from Les Gobelins métro, near the historic tapestry weaving workshop (website ), which offers guided tours to visitors, to Port-Royal métro, through a rather bland district full of hospitals, legacy of the many religious orders who were once headquartered here. The ancient abbey of Port-Royal survives. Just off the boulevard on the the rue St-Jacques you’ll find the the Val-de-Grâce, one of the most beautiful churches in Paris, while on the other side, on rue Faubourg St-Jacques is the Paris Observatory, dating from 1667, and also open for guided tours.
