The 5th Arrondissement

The Latin Quarter

The 5th Arrondissement - The Latin Quarter

Bordered by Boulevard Saint-Michel and the Jardin des Plantes, the entire 5th arrondissement is marked by the presence of the emblematic Sorbonne, which makes it a mainly student district. Rue Mouffetard and Place de la Contrescarpe are full of cafés with a student atmosphere.
But the Latin Quarter is also quieter streets where it is good to stroll before stopping at one of its famous art cinemas.

Living in the 5th arrondissement of Paris means climbing the rue de la Montagne Saint-Geneviève for a mint tea at the Paris Mosque, strolling through the Jardin des Plantes, which remains one of the most beautiful Parisian walks.
