This is the upslope in the 5th in Paris, uphill through the Latin Quarter. Lots of academic institutions here, lots of old Paris in architecture. And lots of cool cafes and restaurants. Fun place.

I recently stayed for 11 nights in a hotel near the bottom of this hill, which overlooks the Left Bank of the Seine. I enjoyed this area of the Latin Quarter immensely. It brims with students, because of the institutions of higher learning nearby; bars;...More

This slope leads one up from the Seine into the lovely 5th Arrondisement, and into the middle of the university area, full of academic buildings. Lots of inexpensive restaurants, some quite good. Historic old Paris, perfect for wandering.

Discovered this by accident when visiting the Pantheon. Beautiful area of Paris, only a short walk from the Ile de la Cite. Lots of interesting restaurants, quaint winding streets. The church is beautiful, light, with great unusual stained glass windows.

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
