Why you must visit the Latin Quarter on your next Paris trip

Largely spanning the 5th arrondissement of the city, the Latin Quarter is so-called because students of the nearby Sorbonne University would have conversed with one another solely in Latin during the Middle Ages. In a perhaps further ironic twist, most of the Parisian Roman ruins that can be seen today are to be found in this neighbourhood of the city.

Some of the best reasons to visit the Latin Quarter include the many independent bookshops that the area has to offer; Shakespeare and Company, as well as the Abbey Bookshop to name but a few. This Parisian arrondissement is quite literally also littered with historical things to do, including several museums, and some of the best churches in Paris.

As such, should you choose to stay in the 5th arrondissement during your Paris visit, you’ll be rewarded with fantastic proximity to many of the city’s main attractions, as well as some of the best eateries that the French capital has to offer. Highlights of the Latin Quarter include the Paris Pantheon, the Sorbonne University, and the Musée de Cluny.

Things to know before booking Montmartre accommodation

If you’re searching for somewhere to stay in the Latin Quarter, then you should know that this Paris district is popular year-round, especially during peak season (i.e. the summer months and during school holidays). As such, you’ll want to book your place to stay well in advance so as to secure the best deals, rates, and accommodation.

Although most people in the tourism industry speak great English, it’s only polite to learn a few words of the local language, in this case, French. So as to help you get by, I highly recommend bringing along a French phrasebook like this one. You should also know before you visit Paris that the plugs are different from those in many parts of the world. Bring along a universal travel adapter like this one so you can charge your electrical items abroad!
