The 6th district of Paris, France, on the Left bank was the gathering centre of many artists, literary figures, philosophers, film makers and decision makers. Here they’d meet in the local cafes, share and create revolutionary ideas and theories and write their latest book just as Sartre did, over a coffee and an abundance of cigarettes.
There are certain cafes in this area of Paris which still remain today and can be visited by you, just as they were by icons such as Fernand Leger, Hemingway, Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, André Breton, Picasso, Camus, Apollinaire, Modigliani, Man Ray, Debussy, Stravinski, Chagall and even Napoleon Bonaparte, Robespierre and Benjamin Franklin.
