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.

"Wonderful church, wonderful architecture"
reviewed 9 April 2020 by Fred M
Eglise Saint-Etienne-du-Mont de Paris includes a variety of architectural styles, incorporated over its many years of construction. Beautiful artifacts throughout the church that make for a very interesting visit. A typical Paris church that gives one a sense of peace and tranquility. If you love churches, architecture, and history, a must visit.
Only seen from the outside because we forgot to buy our tickets in advance, still worth the view! The architecture is stunning and the front entryway ceiling is amazing! I would come back to see the inside if it is anywhere close to how well the front is.
Located in the 5th Arr, stands this gothic church, (we especially love the gargoyles), built in the mid 7th century, standing the test of times,(after a couple of rebuilds), surrounded by lovely tight streets/alleys that haven't been Haussmann’ed. Inside it is a little dark and gloomy, however, this simply adds to the ecclesiastical atmosphere.
I always try to book (easily, on-line) a concert at St Julien de Pauvre when I’m in Paris and have thoroughly enjoyed so many good ones. The acoustics are wonderful and the church charming. There is a fairly regular Vietnamese castrato who is fabulous and this month a Japanese piano player with a French tenor doing opera arias which was...
"Fun for tots but Children’s gallery is only for those 6+"
reviewed 3 February 2020 by H7109UOjanetl
Not a huge variety of things to do if too small to go to the children’s gallery but still quite interactive and fun for toddlers. My daughter loved the ocean floor! Then we discovered a wonderful little restaurant that does delicious poke bowls called le squab not too far away. Some English was spoke so was able to navigate my...
The best authentic pizza in Paris. They allowed me to invent my own pizza, that was Italian Sausage and Mushrooms. The highest quality on all fronts and a perfect preparation. Arrivederci? Only for now because I am for sure coming back.
The Hotel Monge is absolutely perfect. It is a great location within easy walking distance of three metro stations and many bars and restaurants. The rooms are really comfortable and the service is excellent. Breakfast consisting of French bread, croissants, cold cuts, yogurts, juices etc is available between 7 and 11. You can also help yourself to coffee or tea...
We stayed at Relais Christine the first week in December, amid the transportation strike. This hotel exceeded every one of our expectations - it was a dream come true. The hotel is located on a little side street, a street that would probably be called an alley in the US. But your in the middle of all of the action,...
The Hotel Saint-Paul Rive Gauche is wonderful boutique hotel located in the 6th Arrondissement. I visited the hotel in 2018 to see if it would be a good fit for me. It is family owned owned hotel located very close to Jardin du Luxembourg. The staff is fantastic, the facilities are immaculate, and breakfast is great. My room was good...
We loved the location and restaurants nearby this boutique hotel. Our room was fabulous, with views out over the Pantheon and the university, and even views of more of the city in the distance. Walk just out the door to an amazing show at night from the Eiffel tower, too!
Spent 3 nights at the hotel, we had dinner at the hotel's restaurant (le comptoir) on two occasions. Very good food and as a guest of the hotel you have priority access to table.
We chose to have breakfast delivered to the room each morning. The breakfast was of a very high quality.
Highly recommend this hotel
