Paris Latin Quarter Tour

Published on Thursday November 6th, 2014 by admin

The Latin Quarter extends between the 5th and the 6th arrondissement, on the famous Left Bank. It is one of the most frequented and popular places of the capital, known for it’s concentration of world-renowned universities such as the Sorbonne.
The area was once the center of the Roman city of Lutetia.
It is crossed by two major main lines: the Boulevard Saint-Germain and Boulevard Saint-Michel.
La Sorbonne is not the only university district, in fact, there are many other Grandes Ecoles and elite schools among the most prestigious in the capital.
This area has the largest concentration of book shops (many second-hand) and has a reputation and atmosphere of being lively and intelectual.
During the events of May ‘68, the area became the heart of the student revolt.
Opposite the Sorbonne, you will find the Hotel de Cluny which houses the Museum of the Middle Ages with the magnificent tapestry of the “Lady Unicorn”
A few meters away are the Gallo Roman thermal baths, dating from the first and third century.
At the end of the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, near the Jardin des Plantes, stands the majestic Pantheon dominating everything around it, then this will lead you to the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg.
Finally, St. Michael’s Square with its fountain representing Saint Michael fighting the Devil, day or night, it is a most vibrant and lively neighborhood with its booksellers along the Seine, its picturesque streets.
In the district of Saint Germain des Pres, you will find the famous Les Deux Magots café Flore, founded in 1812 and where Picasso, Prévert, Hemingway and Simone de Beauvoir liked to meet.

    It is almost unanimous that the apartment is charming and spacious, and I'm delighted to add my voice to the mix. Two bedrooms is a wonderful size, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the terrace is all that it looks like in the pictures.

    It is almost unanimous that the apartment is charming and spacious, and I'm delighted to add my voice to the mix. Two bedrooms is a wonderful size, the kitchen is fully equipped, and the terrace is all that it looks like in the pictures. There are few better things in this world than sitting on a terrace in Paris drinking a glass of red wine! The 12th is not a famous area, but it is full of cafes, bakeries, restaurants, and parks. Transit is very close and easy. We had a toddler, so we were excited by the Bois de Vincennes nearby -- and it is a marvellous park. We found three playgrounds in quick walking distance, and likely could have found more if we needed. It is a very child friendly area. For those who have decided to take this lovely apartment, I would give a word of advice: make sure to get the exterior apartment code from Nadia before leaving. I asked a number of times, but never got this important code -- which meant having to wait on the street for a stranger to take pity and let me in. Also, be very clear in advance about your special needs. We didn't bring our stroller or portable crib because we were told these things would be in the apartment. The crib arrived in the afternoon, but the stroller didn't show up for three days. I attribute this to a communication difficulty between Nadia (property manager) and Jeanne (property owner). Just make sure that your needs are clearly articulated and confirm before you leave. Once we had what we needed, though, we couldn't have been happier anywhere in the city. We would love to return to this apartment in the future. Moral of the story: Paris is amazing...

    Очень уютная квартира с шикарным расположением - до Елисейских полей 5 минут, рядом много магазинов и ресторанов, метро в 2 шагах.  Все так как описывалось на сайте. С маленьким ребенком недостает только стиральной машины (прачечная недалеко), зато есть посудомойка и быстрый интернет! Хозяин очень заботливо сопровождал подготовку к приезду и помог с инструкциями для удобного размещения в Париже. décembre 2013,...

    Very nice apartment. Small, but comfortable. In a great location, very close to Notre Dame! We checked in late, as our flight came later, but Nadia was very communicative and texted me using iMessages. Her friend Jean was there to meet us, even though it was around midnight when we got there! I would definitely recommend it. OHIO, US, October...

    We had such a great time introducing our children to Paris and loved staying in Nadia's apartment in the Latin Quarter. The location was ideal and we very much enjoyed the view of the Pantheon from the balcony. The apartment itself was exactly what we needed and it was great to have access to a stove and a refrigerator. Atlanta,...
