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 the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
Until you turn a corner you get no idea that this vast building is waiting for you. Close to the Sorbonne and some other beautiful residences and monuments this is worth it just for the walking tour of the historic Latin Quarter.
The building itself is impressive for its design and position as well as its size.
It contains the...
I was eager to visit the museum due to my interest in medieval art. I was disappointed to see on the website that much of the museum is closed due to renovations. There were two exhibits open at this time. I enjoyed both of them. The unicorn tapestries are beautiful and well displayed. I did note on the website that...
Both interior and exterior of Saint-Severin church are splendid.
I was amazed to find so little people inside. It doesn't seems right, because it's such a beauty, but it feels so good to be able to enjoy it in peace!
Located 150 meters from Notre Dame cathedral on the Left Bank (around the corner from Shakespeare Books) this lovely gothic chapel has great musical evenings. Check their website for schedules. We saw (and heard) a concert-quality piano recital of Chopin and Liszt by a wonderful - very professional - pianist.
Quite reasonably priced at 18 Euros considering the quality of...
This restaurant is an incredible experience and a must do in Paris!! I do not think that I could come up with enough adjectives to tell you how wonderful everything was from the food quality to the wine to the service, simply amazing! As a world traveler who has been to Paris more than a dozen times, this has been...
"Excellent restaurant specialising in duck dishes"
reviewed yesterday by Davidsch82
We had a wonderful evening in this fantastic little restaurant specialising in dishes from south-west France, think duck and armagnac! The staff are very friendly and helpful, especially the charming lady! We started with an aperitif consisting of armagnac, orange liquer and sparkling wine. We shared a delicious goose rillettes as a starter and had duck confit and a cassoulet...
I lunched here twice during this trip and the wonderful food and the superb service from front of house Shawn Joyeux never disappoints.
And what a wine list.
Shawn knows his way around it too.
Highly, highly recommended
The restaurant was very popular so I booked it nearly a month in advance and I had to reconfirm the day before.
(1) very attentive and warm services
(2) Cozy restaurant and the tables were not very packed so good privacy
(3) Their bread was very good, appetiser Foie gras was good, the main dish veal was good....
I stayed at the Hotel Monge as part of a family and friends trip to Paris in December.
When we were looking for a hotel, we decided on the Monge due to the very high ratings it received on Trip Advisor. As usual, that guidance from this global community of travelers did not let us down. The hotel was just...
"a perfect place to feel at home away from home (but better!)"
reviewed 6 days ago by Sophia S
The location and extremely comfortable and well designed rooms are obviously fantastic but what really stood out for us was the wonderful, warm and accommodating staff at Relais Christine. They went out of their way to make our stay a memorable experience. From restaurant reservations to gifts for our children upon arrival to the fantastic breakfast - we cannot wait...
This is a perfectly located hotel for sightseeing. The decor I would describe as stylish-traditional and all the areas are spotlessly clean. Our room was charming - everything we needed and lovely colour scheme with lovely old beams. We had a lovely welcome and all the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. We will definitely return to this gem.
we loved staying here, location is perfect for St Germain, just a few metres from a pretty square with restaurants, our room was wonderful, with coffee and macaroons, a superbly comfortable bed, a room for people who know each other well as the massive circular bed wasn't screened in any way
My husband and I celebrated our ten year anniversary and couldn’t have been more pleased with the Hotel Des Grands Hommes. The room we stayed in was a classic room, so not super large, but perfect for a place to sleep (with ultra comfortable beds and pillows!) and had a beautiful updated bathroom. I loved the charming French decor as...
