Owner description: 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.

“Latin Quarter buzzes with life”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

The Latin Quarter in Paris is full of energy. The best way to do the Latin Quarter is walk and let the momentum lead you. From the statue of St-Michel slaying the demon by the Seine, you can just walk along the Seine where all the tourist shops are. Or, you can walk down rue St-Michel and discover the shops along the way. Not far down is the sign for the Musee Cluny. Any of these little streets to the left lead you through some wonderful restaurants and cafes. As you walk, there are statues that show up seemingly out of nowhere. There are marvelous bas-reliefs on the buildings, whether businesses or apartments. The occasional fountain springs up with its own little statuary. There are students attending the Sorbonne, exploring their new environs. There is always something in the Latin Quarter to see and do. It is full of life and energy.

“Visit from Australia once again”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

The Latin Quarter is on the Left Bank. It is an ancient river side quarter between the Seine & the Luxembourg Gardens. It is a university area, one could say. It is only a small area, but much is packed into it. It is a maze of narrow cobblestones streets. Each turn you may get a pleasant surprise. Great restaurants with a good variety of reasonably priced food ,coffee & drinks. Nice to just sit & watch the passing parade, all well behaved I might add. Getting there by metro is easy, but of course walking you see much more & can take in its history. May become lost a few times in the tiny streets with 800 years of history, but there is someone always willing to help you.
