We lived in this area and was here several times. Its beautyful and lively, lots of people and cosy restaurants. You can find food here that isnt so expensive, nice bars and lovely buildings to watch. I felt very safe in this area and would live here again.

The Latin Quarter of Paris is situated on the left bank of the Seine, around the Sorbonne university. Apart from a mass of international students from the collection of higher education establishments, it's best known for its lively atmosphere, bistros, restaurants and unusual shops. The name alone evokes images of bohemian Paris at its height and, in spite of the... More

loved this place, nice to hang out as there are shops, cafes, restaurants, etc. The place is still historical . This one is a students quarter and therefore in the past, the students here spoke Latin language and therefore the Latin quarter.

The Latin Quarter is one of the hippest areas in Paris. Full of cafes, bars, jazz clubs, restaurants and nice hideaways, it is a 'happening' part of the city. Great to visit - for shopping, to walk around and to see many of the beautiful sights this quartier has to offer. Recommended!

There are people from all over the world experiencing the verve of this area. Walk down any street & see side shows where magicians, musicians, fire... More

The Latin Quarter has so much to offer and is located in the 5th and 6 th district. Cafes, shops and historic sights are steps way from each other. This is a great section to book your hotel because you will find something new each day you explore its streets. It is called the Latin Quarter due to the Latin... More

I visit Paris every two years & always venture over to the Latin Quarter for dinner or a stroll around the many interesting bohemian shops. It's a wonderful place to visit at night to have dinner & a few drinks at one of the many bars located around the area. The Latin Quarter of Paris is located in the 5th... More

The Latin quarter is full of atmosphere, with narrow alleys and some hills opening onto little squares. Lots of corner shops and bistros add to the charm. Lots of bookshops and music venues attest to the student population at the universities here. A slice of the real Paris - as it is and unsanitised for tourists.

The Latin Quarter is many people's favorite part of Paris. It offers galleries, book stalls, ethnic restaurants of all kinds, some of Paris's deepest history, night clubs and bars, funky and posh small hotels, and a vibe that is still influenced by the presence of The Sorbonne and its students and professors. I love it, but it's very busy and... More
