We ate at three different places on the Place de la Sorbonne during our visit to Paris and staying about a block away from this open plaza with 3-4 restaurants. One of our meals was excellent, and two were just okay. Service was also okay...More

The Sorbonne is one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in Paris. As we walked to the Pantheon we walked right past it. We also saw it from the top of the Pantheon.

On a quiet morning it is great to sit at one of the many cafes and contemplate the history of this great university and observe the variations of students that study here.

Located within a few steps from Notre Dame cathedral, You can admire one side of the beautiful Sorbonne University building and enjoy a drink, a meal, street music players or just some coffee. Loads of students hanging around, screaming, drinking or just having lunch.

Just round the corner from the hotel this rapidly became our "local" for a digestive. We enjoyed watching the locals use the fountains as a back drop for fashion photography

I find this square to be pleasant in summer when its fountains operate but rather uninteresting otherwise. It is a courtyard for the Sorbonne so often has many students milling about. Shops, cafes and a hotel stand by the square with chairs for the eateries...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,

student bars and lively eateries while the squares are

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
