So called as a result of the exclusive use of Latin in courses given by the medieval schools and universities, this area overlaps mainly with what is known as the 5th district.
Discover the Pantheon, where lay the remains of French Enlightenment thinkers and writers (Voltaire, Hugo and Zola).
Also visit the botanical garden with its Natural History Museum and Zoo.
The Quartier Latin also has a village atmosphere where artists and students mingle along the Boulevard Saint Germain or at the booksellers stalls on the Quai de Montebello.
Finally, don't forget to wander around or sit down at a cafe to get a taste of the Rue Mouffetard atmosphere.
