We love the Latin Quarter and visit it whenever we go to Paris. It's a microcosm of society and the food choices are literally endless. The name comes, apparently from the fact university people used to communicate in Latin, in older days, like medieval times, so it has stuck. But today it probably owes more to its multiculturalism than anything else. While most of Paris went through a radical transformation and was modernised with wider streets and so on, the Latin Quarter with its narrow alleyways, remained as it essentially was. For that we are probably lucky. It definitely is the place to go to.

Several little alley and streets filled with restaurant from all other the world. Life happens at the Latin. Specially during the night. It is a bit crowded, but is a crowd that is there looking for good food and great drinks. Make sure to stop by at the century old book stores. Also, it is possible to access the Ile de la Cite, where Notre Dame Cathedral is and if you walk the opposite side you will end the up at the Sorbonne a bit more the Luxembourg garden. Is that amazing that Paris is all very connected? #liveifeasy Metro stations to access the Latin are: Odeon, Maubert and Jussieu Enjoy Paris!

We did a bus tour that went through the area and just loved the streets, there were plenty of statues and a few churches we passed. It felt like a non touristy place and quite relaxed.

We chose a hotel in the Latin Quarter for our first trip to Paris, as it made a fairly central base within walking distance of many of the popular bucket list tourist spots. Full of rich history, bookstores, cobblestone streets, students and tourists alike. You can’t go hungry here - there’s a wide selection of street food, cheap ethnic/student eats, and finer dining. We found so many charming spots and historical sites just wandering on our way to other destinations. Always felt safe even when out and about late at night. You can visit sites like the Pantheon, Musee de Cluny, Shakespeare and Company Bookstore and Notre Dame is just across the Seine.
