Packed with tourists from all around the world this quarter might look interesting for a “non-latin” (including the Greeks) but in fact it has somehow degraded to an awkward replica of similar touristic areas found in the Mediterranean (e.g. Plaka in Athens). You may find a couple of interesting places but don’t be tempted to eat. Most probably you will... More

We visited the Latin quarter twice on our stay in Paris. There is so much choice for food. We had small kids and teenagers with us. Very busy so a watchful eye was kept on the small kids. Very reasonably priced. Most restaurants offered €10, €12, €15, €17, €20 and €25 menus for 3 courses. Traditionally the Latin quarter is... More

I stayed in the Latin Quarter on my last trip to Paris and it was a great place to be. I was travelling alone and I felt safe the whole time I was there. One day I walked from my hotel at the bottom of the 5th to the Seine. It was time well spent to just slowly wind my... More

I love this area. Hustle bussel and fun. People watch and the just try to pick a place to eat out of that many restaurants. You can get anything you want in a casual setting. This is by far the most reasonable food place in Paris! I loved just walking through here. The people are interesting and food, shops....... Don't... More

Nice to walk through just to see the shops and people who live in the area. Sharp contrast to the other side of the river. I was impressed to stand in front of the Sorbonne and to think of those who passed through.

Staying in the heart of the Latin quarter we wished to join the free ( tip at end depending on satisfaction) walking tours on offer of this area. Through Frommers web site we found one starting at 11a.m leaving from Cluny square/La Sorbonne metro above ground exit. No show after waiting 25 minutes, we were told from a french speaking... More
