Want to sit at a cafe and admire the view of Notre-Dame's cathedral? Or just profit of the cheerful melting pot in those small street of Paris?
If you're missing your country's cuisine, the Latin Quarter is the perfect place to find a restaurant that will make you feel right at home. Quatier Latin is also the place to go if you want to introduce a typical dish from your home country to your Erasmus friends!
You will also find in this cheerful district of Paris typical French cuisine at good prices.
For a long time the Latin Quarter has been well known as the student district. It is the place of all the Parisian Universities. This student's talkative exchange of knowledge in the streets gives its name as the "Quartier Latin" because everybody there were so well educated they used to speak in Latin.
No one speaks Latin anymore but you will still find the prestigious French universities like La Sorbonne, Science-Po or Assas.
This means that the Latin Quarter is still a young district where students meet after school.
Trust me the Latin Quarter is one of the best places to sit and have a drink with your friends.
If you like it during the day, you are going to love it at night ;)
The Latin Quarter must see:
- Speciality food shops from around the world
- Souvenir shops
- Bars to go at night for a drink with your friends
