The Latin Quarter of Paris (French: Quartier latin, IPA: [kaʁtje latɛ̃]) is an area in the 5th and the 6th arrondissements of Paris. It is situated on the left bank of the Seine, around the Sorbonne. Known for its student life, lively atmosphere and bistros, the Latin Quarter is the home to a number of higher education establishments besides the university itself, such as the École Normale Supérieure, the École des Mines de Paris, Panthéon-Assas University, the Schola Cantorum, and the Jussieu university campus. Other establishments such as the École Polytechnique have relocated in recent times to more spacious settings.

  • It just smells of history.... A Great place to learn a historically significant city like Paris. Here all buildings "breathe old". Stroll through the old pavement, go to a small café or bistro, have a drink. Take a Break and... Walk again. By the Way I went to the Sorbonne during the walk. Yes, it is possible to go there freely, see the educational process, the audience, stand at the monument Richelieu... Go to the chapel of St. Ursula. In short, the Latin quarter is a landmark place for Paris. I Recommend it unequivocally!

  • In the case of the Latin Quarter, it is worth a visit just to walk around and take pictures on the older streets. The shopping was also pretty diverse with nice restaurant options around.  more »
