Saint Severin was just down the street from our hotel (Hotel Europe Saint Severin) in the Latin Quarter and thus it made it easy to get to. A well worn exterior, like most you'll see in Paris given the age it was built, gives way...More

Another church in Paris not often visited by tourist. Quiet, with a great history. No entry fee, no one taking selfies. Beautiful, a great visit if you can fit it in to your Paris trip.

I recommend visiting this church if you are in the Latin Quarter. Stain glass panels have vivid colors and are exquisite. Very quiet and peaceful. A great place for a respite. Late afternoon sun will dilute the impact of the stain glass work on the...More

One of many beautiful churches to be found in Paris. This one is free to enter and rarely crowded, so a quick visit should do the trick.

This is an interesting church located in the middle of the Latin quarter, that you are bound to stumble across when walking around the area. Interiors are quite nice.

Just happened upon this church while walking around Paris. I noticed the gargoyles and decided to take a closer look. Architecture of this church is fantastic both inside and out. Some of the nicest stained glass I've ever seen. Highly recommend.

Don't overlook Saint-Severin. It is a beautiful Gothic church and is one of the oldest in Paris. It will not be crowded. There is a wonderful warmth and brightness to the interior and the stained glass is superb. Everyone really has to go see Notre...More

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
