We hope you're ready to explore the Latin Quarter, the most popular neighborhood on the left bank of Paris.

The Latin Quarter, steeped in history and culture, is famous for its unique atmosphere. For a thousand years it has been the quarter of students and educational institutions as well as the meeting place for intellectuals and artists. During the tour, we will talk about the most influential thinkers, scientists and heroic figures to be born out of this nurturing environment. We hope that by the end of the tour, you will have a deeper sense of Paris and France.

Follow us through the Paris of the 1920s and feel the spirit of Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, George Orwell and many other international artists who once lived in this neighborhood. Unlike other favorite tourist areas of Paris, visitors will find a more authentic atmosphere here.

Away from the typical tourist trails, hidden treasures such as an ancient arena from the 1st century, a Roman Bath and the Botanical Garden of Paris are all included along your route. You will discover famous sights such as the imposing Panthéon, the world-famous bookshop Shakespeare & Company, and Sorbonne - the second university in Europe. Museums such as the Museum of Marie Curie and the Medieval Museum Cluny, as well as the charming Church of St. Etienne de Mont and Church of Saint Severin are also part of this tour.

On this tour we will guide you through the fascinating flair of the Latin Quarter and discover the highlights of this charming neighborhood!  As we stroll past many of the most important sites in the city, you will reach some attractions whose admission is not free. It is best to listen to the informative audio commentary beforehand and decide for yourself whether a look from the outside satisfies you, or whether you’d like to enter.

There is so much to see and do today, let's get going!
