Paris Right Bank and Left Bank

Paris's Left Bank is famed for its Latin Quarter, Saint-Germain and Montparnasse, areas closely associated with intellectuals, students and artists. The Right Bank, regarded as posher, boasts grand hotels, business quarters and major stores. While the differences between the Seine's two banks have lessened, Parisians still talk of a Left Bank spirit, more artistic and bohemian, contrasting with a Right Bank spirit, more classic and conservative.

 

 

 

The Parc de Sceaux

The splendid Parc de Sceaux was designed in the 17th century by the great landscaper, Le Nôtre, for Louis XIV's great minister, Colbert. It has experienced many ups and downs since. At the Revolution, it became an agricultural college, before being sold off. In 1923 it was brought back to life, according to Le Nôtre's plans, and opened to the public. Having once welcomed the Sun King, the park witnessed new moments of glory in 1987, when the singer Madonna gave a huge concert here.
