Take your time when visiting, it is well worth visiting every corner. Shopping and dining at a very high level. Extremely well kept by authorities compared to years ago. Some refurbishing is still going on, making it one of the nicest places in Paris

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
