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.

Many restaurants and cafes to choose from in the area. The Sorbonne and The Pantheon are located in The Latin Quarter. We enjoyed walking the many streets in this section after touring the area and having dinner in one of the cafes

I sampled many of the restaurants in the area and found them all to be very good. I was a woman alone and felt very safe.

I like this Quarter a lot. If you look for a cheaper food, to try some sweets and buy some souvenirs cheaper - this is the place. It is also a good location to look for accommodation in this quarter, when staying in Paris.

We were staying at the Notre dame hotel on the banks of the seine and the Latin quarter was right behind. Lots of bars and restaurants with great prices. Reminded me a bit of Spanish holiday resorts but great fun!

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

It is very hard to find an upscale hotel for the price you are seeking, accommodation for your price range is more quaint and if look under apartment for rent, you may get something reasonable in the Latin quarter.
