This is not what the same as in the 70s, of course, but the area is still a must-see, especially the gardens.

Reminds me of the years I lived in Paris, nearby. Plenty of restaurants, bars, shops, markets, a living area. Not to miss.

The left bank is where one can experience the true life in Paris. Filled with wonderful restaurants, shops of every type imaginable and of course churchs to be visited and admired.

I loved walking through this is area on my way back to my hotel. The streets are very quaint, and each store is more interesting than the next. Don't miss it.

In a 1-week holiday we went to walk round the left bank three times! There is so much to enjoy, such as the Sorbonne, the Pantheon, the Jardin de Luxembourg, the streets, the restaurants, the ambience. We are ready to go back!

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
