Where to stay in Latin Quarter - Pantheon (5 arr.)

Take a step back in time in the 5th arrondissement, an ancient quarter of Paris celebrated for its educational and intellectual achievements. Roman ruins remind visitors of the long history of this area on the left bank of the Seine, and museums celebrate subjects as diverse as natural history, the scientific work of Pierre and Marie Curie, and everyday life in medieval times. Named after the celebrated Sorbonne University, where students communicated in Latin right up to the Revolution, the Latin Quarter has long been regarded the beating heart of the City of Light.

Things to see in the 5th arrondissement

Begin your exploration of the 5th arrondissement by delving into the city's Roman history at the Arènes de Lutèce amphitheater, which was used as a theater, circus, and sporting arena when it was built in the 1st century A.D. Continue your Roman journey at the Musée de Cluny, where you'll find the remains of Roman thermal baths, then while away the afternoon in the peaceful surroundings of the Jardin des Plantes (botanical gardens). The spectacular church of the Pantheon is the final resting place of a number of celebrated French figures including Voltaire, Rousseau, and Marie Curie and is well worth a visit. Perhaps one of the most popular attractions in the Latin Quarter is Notre Dame Cathedral. This 12th-century masterpiece of Gothic architecture draws visitors in their droves who come to gaze at its intricate façade, stately bell towers, and glorious rose windows.

Good for history lovers

From Roman theaters to medieval universities, the buildings of the Latin Quarter stand testament to days gone by.
