This isn really a tourist attraction in its own right - the Left Bank is more of a geographic area with the standard muse7ms, statues, monuments, parks, cafes, shops etc.. You’ll undoubtedly find yourself visiting here if you visit any of the main tourist attractions.

Some days the area is quite quiet and it's wonderful to browse the streets looking at the wonderful architecture. Lots of shops, cafes, museums and art galleries. Easily accessible as you just cross over one of the many bridges which gives you a different perspective...More

I liked this side as well. It's not as posh as the roght side, but exactly because of this, you don't need to fight for space as you walk around.

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
