SINGAPORE - Agoda.
com, Asia's leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced exclusive deals on La Rive Gauche.
La Rive Gauche â literally, âthe Left Bankâ â is where the roots of bohemian and modern intellectualism in Paris first took hold. Home to students, artists, writers, and free-thinkers, its most famous inhabitants have included Sartre, Camus, Picasso, Hemmingway, AnaĂŻs Nin, and Henry Miller.
Today, the Left Bank â which geographically refers to the southern side of the Seine, mainly the fifth and sixth arrondissements â is a largely gentrified area with luxury stores and up-market accommodation. Still, its bohemian and intellectual legacies abide in the CafĂ© de Flore, les Deus Margots cafĂ©, and at Place Jean-Paul Sartre et Simone de Beauvoir, an intersection commemorative of these two pioneers of existentialism.
The Left Bank is still home to esteemed places of learning, including the highly-selective political science institute âSciences Poâ and Sorbonne University. The biggest cultural attractions for travelers here â and definitely the most recognizable â are the MusĂ©e d'Orsay, the MusĂ©e Rodin, the Luxembourg Gardens, and the majestic Eiffel Tower.
Also a must-visit area of the Left Bank is the Latin Quarter â its narrow streets and wide avenues lined with restaurants and bistros, some offering dinner specials and set meals for travelers, some overflowing with students from nearby universities.
The Latin Quarter is one of the oldest parts of Paris, where travelers can see beautiful examples of historic architecture, such as the twelfth-century Sorbonne, the Pantheon, and the National Museum of Natural History.
La Rive Gauche is the perfect place from which to explore Paris. It offers easy Metro access; most major points of interest are within walking distance; there are inexpensive cafĂ©s, shops, and restaurants galore; and a lively night scene with clubs, bistros, and late-night lounges.
To give travelers the chance to see Paris from the perspective of some of the world's greatest intellectuals and artists, Agoda.com is offering the following Rive Gauche hotel specials.
