5th Arrondissement, Paris

4.7
Located on the left bank of the Seine, 5th Arrondissement is one of the oldest districts in Paris, dating back to the Gallo-Roman era. Traces of the area's ancient past are evident in several archaeological remains, such as Roman baths and amphitheaters. Since the medieval times, the district has been known for its Quartier Latin--the area around Sorbonne dominated by higher education institutions. Bookworms should visit Shakespeare and Co., one of the more iconic bookstores in the city. Other interesting sites include Pantheon, Grande Mosquee of Paris, and a museum dedicated to Pierre and Marie Curie. A visit to 5th Arrondissement represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Paris trip builder site to plot your vacation.

  • It is a district on the East side of the South-East side of the river Seine, Ile de la Cité Island, Ile Saint-Louis and Jardin. Turner Street along the Seine river around large traffic-free promenade and was seen on weekdays daytime to jog, savoring a lot. This district is famous for is the mosque, Arab World Institute and the Sorbonne University, but also the "Jardin des Plantes" here. Map, and the Luxembourg Gardens and from the Royal herb garden is a large area, founded in 1633, Louis 13, the historic place. And one of the only entrance seen when you visit, but in large greenhouses and the world's oldest Zoo, next time take to visit!
