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.

Located on River Seine's left bank, known as Rive Gauche, this is an area around Sorbonne University. Stroll around it and get lost.

We have stayed in the Latin Quarter twice and love the area. We love the pedestrian streets near Saint-Sevérin with all the shops and restaurants. I suggest staying in an AirBnb in this area. It was wonderful to have everything right outside your door and to feel like a local.

I certainly enjoyed walking in the Latin Quarter. I felt young again with all these students around. After all, this has been the center of student life since the 18th century and it is still the same now-a-days. The Latin Quarter is in the vicinity of the Sorbonne university. This is why there are so many students in these streets!... More

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.
