One of the world's favorite places to unwind while still being at the center of things, Paris delights with its blend of contemporary flair and its deeply-rooted European history. Step into French antiquity with a visit to the Latin Quarter and the Pantheon, where the old and new blend like a fine French Burgandy.
The Latin Quarter and Pantheon
Home of Paris' oldest and most prestigious university (La Sorbonne) and the oldest neighborhood of the city, the Latin Quarter got its name due to the fact that until the 17th century, Latin was the only language spoken in European universities. On vacation packages in the Latin Quarter, you'll find that the neighborhood is still bustling with youth, which keeps the spirit of the old neighborhood alive. Featuring narrow, medieval streets dotted with the occasional Roman ruin, hotels in the Latin Quarter share the neighborhood with the historically revered and classically beautiful Pantheon—a tomb for French cultural icons, including Voltaire and Victor Hugo. Many hotels near the Pantheon feature views of it or its grounds. The Latin Quarter is also where you'll find the modern but equally stunning Institute du Monde Arabe—or Arab World Institute—which features cultural and artistic exhibitions of Arabic works. There's also the Musee du Cluny, which houses France's most prized medieval artifacts, including the famous Lady and the Unicorn series of tapestries. Hotels in Latin Quarter neighborhoods range from the affordable to the extravagant, reflecting the wide range of tourists who want to spend as much time here as possible.
