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.

One of the nicest places in this beautiful city. From cafes to shops and restaurants, a lot of people. Always lively and busy, great for losing the streets.

The location of the Latin Quarter on the TripAdvisor map is wrong. Someone should fix that. We walked into the wrong neighborhood.....

Walk around a bit and just let your mind wander as you explore the Latin Quarter. Picture yourself amongst Hemingway and Fitzgerald and stop in for a pastry or sweet or two. Stare across the river at Notre Dame, and take a deep breath: You're in Paris!

This was a great area to stay in Paris. Many pastry, candy, bread stores corner cafe's and Notre Dame. We ate at several French restaurants Grenouilles at 55 re du Chevalier de la Barre 75018 was incredible and reasonable. It was just fun to walk the streets day or night and stop in the little shops.

We also went around the block to explore and two blocks away found dozens of shops and restaurants on a quiet little street. We ate on that... More

I absolutely love this part of Paris. Yes, in many parts it's a bit too touristy and 'cheesy' but it is also so energizing and it really makes me feel young! Myth or reality - I don't care; I think that it is a Paris Gem and it is an amazing example of the coming together of class and crass.... More

I walked several times around Latin Quarter and it's a great place. You can find lots of things and it's definitely a "must go" if you are in Paris.

Walked down the Latin quarter by accident. I loved the quaint shorts, cafe's, Gelato and shopping available. It is a must see and do atleast one evening.

Very nice shops, streets, shopping and eating possibilities around. A bit cheaper comparison to Champs-Elysees, Saint-Germain des Pres etc. Worth seeing and walk around!
