One of the major parts of the Left Bank, historically the site of the great universities, and thus lots of book stores and cafes where students hang out. Don't miss Place de Contrascarpe, one of my favorites in all Paris, and the Paris Mosque.

The 5th arrondissement is a central district in Paris and the metro station that will take you in the heart of the district is Place Monge. Highlights are the Latin quarter with its prestigious schools and colleges.

It is well worth spending a day or 2 wandering the 5th Arrondissement and experiencing everything the area has to offer. For me, the main attractions are the Pantheon, Luxembourg Gardens and Palace, and the magnificent churches in the area.

Home of many schools and university campus buildings, student cafes and restaurants, book stores. But also a fairly wealthy area with nice apartment buildings. Old historic streets, the Jardin des Plantes. I love this area.

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendor 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
