This slope leads one up from the Seine into the lovely 5th Arrondisement, and into the middle of the university area, full of academic buildings. Lots of inexpensive restaurants, some quite good. Historic old Paris, perfect for wandering.

So I thought we'd just look in BUT with the Musee pass you look all around and for 1 € you can look over the city in an exterior promenade 208 steps up - amazing! crypts in the basement include Braille, Curie and Dumas and many more. Cool pendulum experiment display on the main floor.

Discovered this by accident when visiting the Pantheon. Beautiful area of Paris, only a short walk from the Ile de la Cite. Lots of interesting restaurants, quaint winding streets. The church is beautiful, light, with great unusual stained glass windows.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
