This famous Left Bank neighborhood, so named because the numerous university students in the area spoke only Latin to their professors until the French Revolution, preserves an authentic Parisian atmosphere of old.

I like to walk in this area. It's also crowded and to many tourists. If you like to eat, you will find here a big choise of restaurants with low prices for tourists. I don't like this kind of tourist trap.
