Latin Quarter of Paris

It would be unthinkable to visit Paris without exploring the Latin Quarter! With its narrow streets and numerous cultural buildings, it is the historical center of the capital. Traditionally populated by students, the Latin Quarter gets its name from the Latin language, which was used in the classes of all the nearby universities and schools, including the famous Sorbonne
There are many walks to be enjoyed here: indulge in leisurely strolls and take the time to get lost in the alleys between the Luxembourg Gardens and the Pantheon. You will discover the relaxed and friendly spirit of another era in Paris. This neighborhood is still cherished by students from the nearby Sorbonne because it offers numerous restaurants and bars at very affordable prices.

If you're in a romantic mood, browse through the second-hand book stalls and take a walk along the banks of the Seine at dusk. Admire the view of Paris from the Île-Saint-Louis, pause for a few photos, and treat yourself to a well-deserved break in the Luxembourg Gardens, facing the Senate.

Explore new walks as you wander towards the Pantheon, the center of student activities, and discover another side of the Latin Quarter, less touristy but equally charming, with its medieval-looking alleys. When you've had your fill of the bohemian and warm atmosphere of this neighborhood, which oscillates between tradition and modernity, let yourself be carried away by the Latin fever during an outing to the Paradis Latin, a famous cabaret designed by Gustave Eiffel himself.
