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.

Love this Area of Paris
Dec 2019
Centered on the Sorbonne's main university campus, the area is graced with beautiful fountains and trees. International students no longer speak Latin here, but it remains lively and has outstanding museums and churches.

Full of life
Oct 2019
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.

Life happens at the Latin
Sep 2019
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!

Great vibe
Feb 2020 • Friends
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.

Great area for a first time Paris stay
Feb 2020 • Couples
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.

My fav part of Paris
Dec 2019
Latin quarter begins just south of the Cite isle across the Seine. When crossing one of the bridges first to encounter are the vintage book sellers along the banks. That's the first sign you're entering the literal, poet and boheme neighborhood.
It's winding street offer an abundance of cafes and restaurants in which you can have a very good meal for a reasonable price, contrary to those in the more touristy areas. Many famous international artists resided in this neighborhood. The area is best to visit from late afternoon onwards.
Among the tourist sites, I'd point out the Pantheon, Sorbonne and Luxembourg gardens.
