Exploring a neighborhood that inspired great minds from Hemingway to Sartre The Left Bank (or "La Rive Gauche") has been the center of work and play for artists of all sorts for hundreds of years. Its gardens and boulevards have been immortalized in countless novels, paintings and films. Thanks to its dense collection of landmarks, it takes only a couple of miles to understand why this neighborhood has been so inspirational. This tour starts at the tombs of some of the greatest minds of the 20th century, winds its way north through the Luxembourg gardens, past art galleries and shops, past the mismatched towers of Saint-Sulpice and the bustling brasseries of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, ending at the lively Pont des Artes.
