This famous Left Bank neighborhood, so named because the numerous university students in the area spoke only Latin to their professors until the French Revolution, preserves an authentic Parisian atmosphere of old.

When in Paris, you must visit the Latin quarter where restaurant promoters tried to grab you as you past the many shops. The restaurants are all very good as it is a high tourist traffic area. Eiffel towers, post cards, place mats and everything French or Parisien is available in the shops for you friends at home. Don't miss it!!

The walking tour of this area was very invigorating. Cafes and small restaurants showed french cuisine and treats in pictures along cobbled streets.

Apart from having really nice areas to walk, sightsee old and historic buildings, the University so close, this area has the widest variety of restaurants, brasseries, boulangeries, where you can eat. Also the prices have different ranges as well. You can eat very very well for a fair price. During my stay in Paris, we were based in Les Marais,... More

After walking to and visiting Notre Dame, we walked around the the Latin quarter with our kids ages 11 and 13. They loved the evening/nigh stroll and helping to pick a cafe for dinner. We end up on St. Andre des Arts and saw the most amazing street dancers we have ever seen, truly talented. It was a very enjoyable... More

Just returned home from a 3 night stay in the Latin quarter of Paris. The quarter is beautiful, crammed with beautiful buildings, character and lots of French restaurants. My favourite part of Paris by far. There's plenty to do and see, you can take a walk along the seine and take in the beautiful views. Many of the main sights... More

The Latin quarter is a fabulous area to explore. There a many reasonably priced brasseries and restaurants. It is cheaper here than other areas. There a many interesting shops. People watching is fun. Go down the little laneways and see where they lead, be adventurous.

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
