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.

We loved this quarter. Very lively streets, with many options from restaurants, sweet shops, cafes & souvenir shops. The souvenirs are here are one of the cheapest in paris, and also you can find many halal take aways and oriental sweet shops. Its a must to come to this quarter while in the area.

This quarter is busy and bustling both day and particularly at night. It is a great place to stay and offers many choices of restaurants, cafes, shops etc. It is an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the city. Prices in restaurants do tend to be a little higher here though.

This area has a holiday feel to it, with its street mazes & abundance of restaurants offering cheap 3 course meals - various set menus to suit any pocket - 10, 12, 16 euros etc within the same establishment. Also creperies & baguette places for cheap eats more suitable for lunchtime snacks at very reasonable prices.

This is called the Latin quarter because most of the universities are here and back in the day those that studied in the universities mainly spoke Latin.

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.
