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.

We stayed in a hotel in the area. It is quite nice area with lots of restaurants and small shop. Price is slightly less that other areas in central Paris. Also with the back drop of Notre Dame to increase the importance of the area.

The Quartier Latin is the heart of bohemian Paris and has been for more than 800 years. La Sorbonne France’s oldest university is located here. This oldest area of Paris is full of inexpensive and cafés, bars and shops.

Go and find the streets! From Boulevard Saint-Michel go down Rue de la Huchette and be amazed of the vibe and colors of this place. It's easy to miss it if you don't know what you are looking for.

Our hotel was in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Lots of shops, restaurants, and Notre-Dame. No lack of churches and food choices for any taste.

Great selection of food from all over the world: Crepes, middle eastern Donner, Asian and cafes. Many of the narrow streets with interesting stores to visit. A great place to walk around after your visit to Notre dame cathedral.

We love eating at the Latin Quarter because there are so many restaurants and the prices seem better than at other locations in Paris. The shopping in the area is good but there is certainly room for some different kinds of shops. This is a great neighborhood to stay in especially in an apartment because everything you need is here.... More

What a cool place to walk & explore. We ventured out looking for Sciences Po as our daughter is interested in grad school and discovered great food, lots of shopping and a really cool vibe of people in the area. Although most everyone is bi-lingual I recommend you brush up on your French and learn a few phrases before you... More

The left bank is, of course, a must-see part of a visit to Paris. The main streets are interesting, but the little passages and small side streets are where the most interesting sights will be found. Look, and walk, up and down any small street, the smaller the better. The main thorofares are for getting from place A to place... More

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighbourhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighbourhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
