With this walking tour, discover the most iconic corners of Paris' Latin Quarter, one of the most storied areas of the city, famous for its bohemian student atmosphere.
Situated on the "rive gauche", the left bank of the River Seine, the Latin Quarter has been home to students and higher learning ever since the opening of The University of Paris in 1150. The second oldest university institution in the world, The Sorbonne buildings which made up the university can still be seen, many of them dating back centuries, and to this day they house several research institutions.
For nearly a thousand years, the Latin Quarter has been home to the leading lights of the intellectual world, serving as a source of inspiration. Among these figures are literary heavyweights James Joyce and Ernest Hemmingway, and the tour will take in their houses as well as the Panthéon, burial place of innumerable great French men and women including Voltaire, Victor Hugo and Marie Curie.
The tour too will take a look in at the Hotel Cluny (perhaps the first hotel in the world), legendary bookshop Shakespeare and co., Paris' oldest cinemas and The Luxembourg Gardens, a beautiful oasis of green in the middle of the city.
All of this comes with an expert guide who is sure to bring to life the long and vivid history of the area.
