Quartier Latin Tours

The Quartier Latin (Latin Quarter) in Paris is commonly thought to be synonymous with the fifth arrondissement, but it actually stretches to the sixth as well. It's also known as the epicenter of Parisian academic life, as it is home to no less than six universities and technical schools. In fact, it's how the Latin Quarter got its name; back in the Middle Ages, area students commonly spoke Latin, - conversationally!

The Roman ruins make the Latin Quarter, also known as Quartier Latin in French, one of the oldest parts of Paris, while the Sorbonne University gives it an intellectual and existential air. The district is tailor made for walking, its legendary cafes, historic jazz clubs, boulevards and narrow lanes capturing the essence of Paris. Today, the Latin Quarter welcomes students from all over the world, and the shops, restaurants and bars reflect this international vibe.

On the Left Bank of the River Seine, the Latin Quarter is filled with history, monuments and tucked-away sights. The domed Pantheon casts a protective eye over this part of Paris and the Luxembourg Gardens are its green lungs.

One of the Left Bank’s must-see attractions is the Cluny Museum of the Middle Ages, which houses the Lady and the Unicorn tapestry you’ll see reproduced on everything from cushions to tea towels. Drop into the church of St. Etienne du Mont while you’re in the Latin Quarter, to pay your respects to the patron saint of Paris, St. Genevieve.

Practical Info

The Latin Quarter is bordered by Blvd. Saint-Michel to the west, The Seine to the north and east, and Blvd. De Port Royal to the south. The M4 Saint-Michel's stop will leave you at the top of the boulevard, near the Seine; the M10 Maubert – Mutualité stop is a popular Rive Gauche stop.
