A journey into the timeless ancient and medieval Paris along its shopping streets and other lively spots, not forgetting iconic monuments such as the Pantheon and the Sorbonne.
Located in the 5th arrondissement between the Seine and the Sainte Genevieve mount, the Latin Quarter is one heritage site in Paris that you must not miss. The foundation of the Roman city of Lutetia, the remains of which can be seen at the Cluny thermal baths and at Les Arènes, the Latin Quarter was later built in the Middle Ages near the Sorbonne University, giving it the distinction it retains today. It is also a place that symbolises the Republic, the perfect embodiment of which are the Luxembourg Palace, seat of the Senate, and the Pantheon. The district is mostly a melting pot of students and tourists and with its many unusual bars and restaurants makes a lively and attractive place to hang out.
This tour offers you a cultural and historic mix, from its ancient origins to the events of May '68, and bustling back streets to quiet little squares. Your city guide will take you on an exploration of the ancient, medieval and contemporary Paris in the time it takes to walk around the different monuments of the Latin Quarter.
