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.

WoW! the best experience ever! I really feel everyone needs to experience Paris! Although visiting Paris and not stopping by the Latin Quarter would be a shame. A must see!

Love this part of the city. So much culture. In the few times I've been to the city I always leave regretting not spending more time in the Latin Quarter. I'd suggest just going without an agenda and getting lost in the shops and cafes.

The shops only opened at 10:00, and there is nothing to do here other than shop and eat really. If you are looking for more boutique shops, stick to the side streets. There are your mainstream, larger stores on the main strip. The best place to go to the toilet here, if you can't have something to eat and then... More

Its not bad...it is Paris after all. Just there are so many more beautiful streets to wander down. I thought I missed out not seeing this the last time I was in Paris but honestly I could have gone without seeing it at all...maybe I didn't take enough time to uncover the charm.

When I think of Latin Quarter, I think of street food and tourist shops and boutiques. It's a fun happening place. Lots of restaurants, and pubs.

The "Latin Quarter" is a district on the Left Bank of the Seine, across from the Isle de la Cité and the Isle St Louis.

Restaurant Cafes lots of places to eat. Metro not a long distance away. Joined a walking tour at Notre Dame and walked to the louvre as well as independently walked to the Eiffel Tower. A reasonable difference so we got the metro back.

It's very touristy but worth a visit. There are lots of restaurants all offering three course dinners for 10€. They are well worth a visit one evening.

You'll find some very reasonable bars and restaurants in this area. It's very very busy, keep a hand on your wallet and enjoy the ambiance. We love it here

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.
