6th Arr., Paris, 75006, France

Located on the Left Bank, the Sixth Arrondissement was a prominent hub of art and philosophy in the 20th century, hosting such personalities as Pablo Picasso, Albert Camus, and Jean-Paul Sartre. The neighborhood is divided into three major areas: St.-Germain-des-Prés, the region surrounding the eponymous sixth-century abbey; Rue de Rennes, one of Paris's longest shopping streets; and Luxembourg, featuring the 1627 Palais du Luxembourg (Luxembourg Palace), home to the French Senate and a 61-acre formal garden. The narrow cobblestoned streets are also lined with world-famous cafés such as Café de Flore, a former haunt of Sartre and Hemingway.
