The Latin Quarter sits astride Paris’ 5th and 6th arrondissements on the famous Left Bank. The Latin Quarter is one of the world’s best known areas, housing as it does the famous Sorbonne University. The Quarter was at the centre of the Roman city Lutetia. It is criss-crossed by Boulevard Saint-Germain and Boulevard Saint-Michel. The Sorbonne is not the only university in the city, there are many others Grandes Ecoles and prestigious high schools where an elite education is offered. Because it is the stamping ground of students and professors there are many bookshops and a lively intellectual scene in the atmosphere. During the disturbances of May 1968 the quarter formed the centre of the students’ protests. Opposite the Sorbonne is the Hôtel de Cluny which houses the Museum of the Middle Ages with the famous tapestry “The Lady with a Unicorn”. Just a few metres away are the gallo-roman baths which date from the first to the third centuries. At the summit of Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, not far from the Jardin des Plantes, the Panthéon radiates over its surroundings and is just a stone’s throw from Luxembourg Gardens. Finally at Place Saint-Michel there is a monumental fountain which represents Saint Michel striking down the Devil. By day and by night, this is one of the liveliest quarters of Paris, with its booksellers along the embankments, its historic little streets and its grand houses which still retain all their former glories. Amongst its famous cafés is Les Deux Magots, founded in 1812 and where Picasso, Prévert, Hemingway and Simone de Beauvoir liked to gather.
