About
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.

    Left Bank quarter
    This is the oldest part of Paris as it's where the Romans built the original settlements, as well as near where the Gallic Parisii tribe was. Lots of shops, restaurants, and sites to see and visit. Take your time and enjoy the walk. Just be mindful of careless cyclists and cars.

    Exceptional tour.
    This tour with Georgia was absolutely marvellous. She made the Latin Quarter come alive for us, leading through the architecture of the various centuries and the stories the the buildings told. We cannot recommend this tour enough for anyone that wants to know the story of Paris.

    Hive of activity.
    I made my way to the Latin Quarter by following Rick Steve's audio tour of historical Paris. A bustling area, with lots of bars and restaurants. Probably a very interesting and lively night out!

    Latin Quarter Walking Tour
    We booked this walking tour through Enchating Travels. Our tour guide was Paula with Memories France. She was amazing & had a lot of knowledge of the history of the Latin Quarter. She kept it entertaining and kept us moving! Highly recommended!!

    The Influence of the Universities
    We have a dear friend who has long lived in this area, and she fits right in as a retired professor from a local university. So we were here to visit, sat in a great cafe, shared glasses of wine, observed the flocks of cool young people all around. The importance of the universities here cannot be over-emphasized as the are the economic engine and flavor everything.

    Heart of Paris
    Full of rich history, bookstores, cobblestone streets, students and tourists alike. The Latin Quarter, famous for bars is also home to Paradis Latin, the oldest cabaret in Paris. It was founded by Napoleon in the 19 th century.

Brilliant experience! Staff were extremely polite and kind, and the pizza was absolutely brilliant! (Some of the best I’ve ever had). Toilets were clean and nice and we were given a complimentary shot at the end of our meal! Would definitely come here again, and I recommend it to anyone.

My wife and I had booked into a small-group walking tour of the Latin Quarter in Paris in September, with 2 to 3 hours set aside in the afternoon for the experience. Rain had fallen for much of the morning but whilst it dampened the commitment of our fellow-walkers (who withdrew) it held off for much of the afternoon and we enjoyed the undivided attention of our guide from Stellar Tours, booked through Viator. Alberto, who also turned out to be the founder of Stellar, was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed his historical and social insights into Paris and the Latin Quarter, as well as the special places to visit and the people who lived and worked there. The time went all too quickly. Highly recommended.
