Adorning the left bank of the Seine, this treasured neighbourhood blends convenience with utmost charm, guaranteeing a rewarding stay in the City of Light. This animated quarter is most famous for its legendary Sorbonne University, which dates back to the 12th century and is still regarded as one of the world’s most influential educational institutes. The district’s name derives from the Latin spoken in the vicinity of the university, once considered the international language of learning. Established by the Romans, the area still retains glimpses of its ancient past, with the incredible Musee National du Moyen Age displaying an evocative collection of remnants and artefacts.
The Quartier Latin overflows with students, artists, intellectuals and tourists, creating a vibrant atmosphere exacerbated by the jovial terraces that line the tree lined avenues. A plethora of wonderful open air markets add to the charismatic ambience and a scattering of picturesque green spaces provide idyllic spots for escaping the crowds and relaxing in the warm Parisian sunshine.
Quartier Latin Highlights
A meander through the quarter’s cobbled avenues grants an insight into both the historical city, most notably showcased through such illustrious landmarks as the Sorbonne and the Pantheon, and contemporary Paris life. The latter can be discovered at the ultra-modern Institut du Monde Arabe, a striking edifice designed by Jean Nouvel, which presents enthralling exhibitions and affords spectacular views from its elevated terrace.
Plenty of churches and museums are available for delving further into the capital’s cultural treasure trove, with highlights including the utterly tranquil St. Etienne du Mont, the fascinating Musee Curie, the Gothic wonder of St. Severin and the adored National Museum of Natural History. The latter resides within the arrondissement’s, and perhaps even the city’s, most pictorial natural landscape, the Jardin des Plantes. Spaciously spread across 70 acres, this verdant setting boasts a variety of gardens, from alpine to tropical, a delightful labyrinth and a small zoo, plus abundant green space for indulging in a cosy summer picnic. An endless array of sociable cafes, mouth-watering patisseries, welcoming boutiques and exceptional restaurants populate the neighbourhood, making this a prime choice for a memorable Paris adventure.
