About
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.

Paris was fabulous! We stayed in the Latin Quarter and loved the neighborhood feel as well as the location to get to so many of the sights easily. The Cafe’s and bakeries were fun to pop into and very plentiful. The restaurants all served amazing foods!

You can wander around the narrow streets in the Latin Quarter for quite some time. My favorite thing about this area are the many restaurants and cafes, selling all sorts of food. I tried a fondue place which was quite nice. Great area for a stroll or a quick meal.

If there is a place in Paris I really appreciate it isn't Champs-Elysee or Tour-de-Eiffel, it's the Latin quarters. They have a charm and rusticity that many other areas lack. Just going through the romantic streets looking at chocolate in store windows or grabbing a beer/wine at one of the local restaurants or bars is a well deserved break from the otherwise so stressful city.

It’s wonderful to just walk around, have a café and then watch Paris go by at its elegant pace. One of my favorite places in Paris.

When in Paris, we always stay within walking distance of the Latin Quarter...for many reasons! The wide variety of restaurants! The entertainment venues!! The souvenir shops!! And the fact that there is usually something open 24 hours a day (or at least most of our waking hours). Beyond the concentration near the Seine River, the Latin Quarter extends outward to include such cultural sites as the Sorbonne, the Pantheon, the Jardin des Plantes, the Cluny, as well as galleries, churches, and more. And of course, Shakespeare and Company Bookstore is one of its stalwarts. Sometimes we just stroll the streets, window shopping and people watching!! You really can't go wrong visiting this Parisian neighborhood!

Located just across the Ile de la Cite on the Left Bank, this area has retained much of its ancient feel, so walking around this neighbourhood will remind you of what the medieval Paris looks like. Built by the Romans, this was apparently the oldest district in Paris. With its many bars, restaurants, souvenir shops, boutique shops along narrow labyrinthine cobblestone streets, this is probably the most vibrant neighborhood in Paris, with locals, students and tourists buzzing around to create a truly eclectic atmosphere. There are also many other museums and the oldest university in France (Sorbonne) located in this 5th arrondissement which I did not manage to explore, but would do so if I ever make it back to Paris.

The Latin Quarter is a district that you should not miss if you visit Paris. A student neighborhood, full of life, bars and restaurants. In August, when Parisians go on vacation, it's a bit calmer, as if it loses a bit of its atmosphere, especially after the pandemic when the number of tourists is somewhat reduced than before. Either way, it's an absolute must.
