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

once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
