Full description
This 2-hour guided walking tour of the Latin Quarter takes you to the very heart of medieval Paris, and you’ll get an idea what this area, now renowned for its elegance and sophistication, used to be like. As you walk along the cobblestone streets, you’ll come across many students who attend the district’s various universities, including the Sorbonne, world-famous for its high standards and centuries-old traditions. The area exudes a youthful spirit of rebellion and progressive ideas, which are in contrast with the ancient streets and churches of the medieval era. This is Paris where tradition truly meets the future. Your tour takes you through the many layers of the Latin Quarter. Along with the historic monuments and beautiful, old-world architecture, you’ll find the hottest jazz clubs of Paris, as well as nightclubs, cocktail bars, and hip restaurants. Principal sites visited on the tour include Shakespeare and Company, Rue Saint-Séverin, the Church of Saint-Séverin, Hôtel de Cluny, La Sorbonne, the Panthéon, Church of Saint-Étienne-du-Mont, and the Luxembourg Gardens.

visite agréable et instructive grâce à notre guide Anya

encore un grand merci à notre guide Anya qui nous a fait partager sa passion pour l'architecture de ce beau quartier. Un grand plus dans cette visite privée qui nous a permis de poser toutes nos questions et de recevoir des réponses très détaillées avec des petites anecdotes. Ne pas hésiter à faire appel à ce guide qui vous enchantera par sa passion des vieilles pierres. Encore merci Anya pour ce bon moment de conviviabilité !

Great overview of the Latin Quarter!

Boris was awesome! Really took the time to show us around places that were "off the beaten path". Really enjoyed getting to know him and beautiful Paris!
