On the left bank, in the Latin Quarter and opposite Notre Dame, I found the iconic bookshop "Shakespeare & Company".
Since 1951 this bookshop has been a place of pilgrimage for aspiring writers and lovers of books and poetry. The rooms are packed to the ceilings with all types of books and on the evening I was there, there was a writers forum and a student playing the piano to a packed room.
