  • The Latino district is one of the pulsating hearts of Paris, it is located on the left bank of the Seine and within its perimeter is home to the University of the Sorbonne, in fact it is also referred to as "the student quarter"! The area is teeming with restaurants, bars, clubs, mostly frequented by students, very busy in the evening! There are numerous vinyl shops and bookshops, the most famous of which is definitely Shakespeare & Company! Absolutely to visit!
