liveliest commercial street, medieval rue Mouffetard in the Latin Quarter, one of the liveliest neighborhoods, and the lovely place for both locals and tourists, starting from the Seine opposite Ile de la Cite and the Notre Dame on the Left Bank. Many main sights are located here, including the Pantheon. The little streets behind it are full of restaurants, cafés and bars, many open around the clock. Rue Mouffetard is famous for its open market. The Luxembourg Garden is between the Latin Quarter and the Saint Germain des Pres area.
The Latin Quarter remains the center of the city’s university life, full of book shops, literary cafés, art house cinemas and perhaps one too many Greek restaurants. It’s also a quarter thick with reminders of its past, from the Roman baths ruins to Medieval churches and 18th-century gardens. Harder for visitors to image is the Latin Quarter’s long track record of political unrest and rebellion....travellers' must visit sight in Paris
