Place de la Contrescarpe
A less-visited area of the left bank, Place de la Contrescarpe is a beautiful little square near the Latin Quarter. With plenty of cafes, shops, and bars on the square and along Rue Mouffetard, this hip area has many students and little tourists. We ended up here on accident, looking for crepes at Au P’tit Grec, but ended up loving the vibe. A truly awesome place to experience a more authentic side of Paris.
Grab a giant stuffed crepe at Au P’tit Grec or hang with the university students late night
