While walking through this banlieue, you'll realize to be in the most authentic, young, lively and romantic Parisian neighborhood. The area gets its name from the Latin language, which was once widely spoken in and around the University since Latin was the language of learning in the Middle Ages in Europe.
This district is the symbol of Parisian university life still today. In fact here, between the Boulevard St. Michel and St. Jacques, is located the Sorbonne, the most prestigious French university. From Boulevard Saint-Germain to Place Monge passing through Rue des Écoles, Hôtel de Cluny and the Jardin des Plantes, you have to visit the hidden streets, the most famous boulevards and discover the many shops, cafés and small bistros.
