Quartier Latin

Paris, France

The creative home to Parisian intellectuals.

To many literature lovers, the Latin Quarter is synonymous with some of the previous centuries best writers such as George Orwell and Ernest Hemmingway. Although now very much gentrified, this charming area of Paris still boasts an amazing cultural history along with inspiring architectural finds and delightful cafés in the small cobbled streets.

Places to visit in the Latin Quarter

When visiting the Latin Quarter, it is almost impossible not to be drawn to Le Sorbonne (also known as the Pantheon). Now part of a multitude of Paris Universities, this historical landmark from over 800 years ago was once the epicentre of French intellectualism. It is now the oldest university in France.

For a traditional Parisian night, head to Le Paradis Latin to experience one of their infamous cabaret performances and a night full of fun.
