This appartement lies near the Montsouris Parc and Rue Alesia, in an old but quiet area of the city. It is fully equipped: internet, washing machine, kitchen. It is close to metro lines 6 ( Denfert Rochereau) and 4 ( Porte d'orleans). There is also an airport direct line - Rer B (stop Cité Universitaire) . Shops and restaurants are 5 five minutes away walk and you are also close to Butte aux cailles - a less touristic but typical parisien quartier. I think this is a great way to discover Paris - you are 7 minutes away by metro from the center of the city and its main touristic attractions, while also enjoying a quite typical parisien neighbourhood. Still, if in the area, do not miss Napoleon III's Montsouris parc and the beautiful street just behind the building. It is one of the few places in Paris where you can see such houses, and mostly very beautiful old ones! Note that the French Catacombes are at Denfert Rochereau, which is just a few minutes walk.
