Hello and welcome for another video tour of a fantastic Paris neighborhood by New York Habitat ( http://www.nyhabitat.com ). In today's video tour we're going to explore one of the liveliest and most popular areas of Paris, the Latin Quarter.

).

Today we are going to finish up our tour of one of the great Paris neighborhoods, the Quartier Latin, or Latin Quarter.
The Latin Quarter has its borders from the Seine River to the top of Mount St. Genevieve, a hill named for the city's patron saint, and is an area full of liveliness that attracts both tourists and native Parisians.

The Luxembourg Garden
The Luxembourg garden is an oasis of green in the middle of Paris, perfect for strolling or sitting. The palace is now home to the French Senate. The gardens have a lovely pond, a fountain and beautiful statues.

The Panthéon
The Pantheon is a burial place for great French people such as Voltaire and Rousseau. After the French Revolution, it went back and forth between being a church and a mausoleum, but it has been a mausoleum now for the last 125 years. You can climb the dome for a super view of the city.

The Eglise Saint-Etienne-du-Mont
The Eglise Saint-Etienne-du-Mont, which is the parish church of the area, took 109 years to build. In its beautiful interior, you'll find a superb 17th century pulpit, an exquisite organ case and the tombstone of Saint Genevieve.

Apartments in the Latin Quarter
After a tiring day of exploring the massive Pantheon or the Luxemburg Garden, there's no better way to relax than to come home to your furnished apartment or vacation rental. Kick back and relax, you're right at home!

Cathédrale Notre-Dame
One thing you won't want to miss is the Notre Dame Cathedral. Located just a stone's throw from the Latin Quarter, the Cathedral is widely considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture in France and in all of Europe!

Here is one last little secret of the Latin Quarter: if you manage to find the street called Rue du Chat-qui-Pêche, you have come across what is said to be the shortest, narrowest street in the world.
