You want to visit the Latin Quarter in Paris but you're not sure where to start?
On today's episode of the podcast, Elyse tells us all the places you should not miss in the Latin Quarter and the exact Latin Quarter Walking Tour she likes to take with her tour customers because it leads you to all the highlights.
The Latin Quarter is a busy place where you will find both French students and lots of visitors. We don't recommend it as a place of peace and quiet; but you could find Elyse's recommendations to find the calmer areas.

Homework: Before you visit the Latin Quarter, you have to watch (or rewatch) the Woody Allen Movie Midnight in Paris where Gil Pender meets a magical car that takes him on astounding adventures every night.
The magical car has never pulled up for me, it turns out it's just a movie. Never mind that, go see the steps, and go inside the Church Saint-Etienne-du-Mont, one of the prettiest churches in Paris for sure!
