Latin Quarter

This area oozes with ancient history. Unfortunately, it also oozes tourist traps. It’s still worth meandering through the cobbled streets to check out the city’s coolest indy movie theaters, some sexy cabaret action, and to pay tribute to Paris’ oldest living tree (it’s over 400 years old and still standing!). Don’t miss Shakespeare & Company Independent Bookstore for some great coffee and good reads. Is it a bit over-exposed? Maybe. But still very charming. The biggest draw for us, as architecture nerds, is the many old churches of varying architectural styles. Shoutout to: Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont and Église Saint Julien Le Pauvre — they’re worth the genuflections.
