In context : On the shoulders of giants in the Latin Quarter

(From : Saint-Etienne-du-Mont Church). Take Clovis street eastbound, between Saint-Etienne-du-Mont church and Henri-IV high school, then turn right into Descartes street which will lead you to Mouffetard street and de la Contrescarpe square. Now maybe it's time to fill up your stomach - you'll have plenty of choice here.

The place

One of the oldest parisian street, probably laid out in the First century by the Romans, the 650-meter long Mouffetard street goes downhill from Sainte-Geneviève towards Saint-Médard church.

Very lively, it is a busy Latin Quarter's street, with lots of densily-packed restaurants, cafés and shops of all kinds, especially up to the Place de la Contrescarpe coming from Sainte-Geneviève hill. Needless to say that it's a crowded place for a drink at night.
