Tour Description

Discover the heart of the Quartier Latin with the bohemian quarter of Mouffetard and the delightful Place de la Contrescarpe, often filled with glorious outdoor food markets – Julia Child’s favorites! These charming streets were also the haunt of the writers, poets and artists who lived and wrote in Paris, immortalizing their lives here in print and making Paris of the 1920’s the artistic center of the world.

We’ll also take you to the top of the majestic Pantheon. Sitting high upon a hill overlooking the Latin Quarter, the Pantheon guards the remains of France’s most venerable men and women. We’ll go behind the scenes, with pre-reserved entry, and take you up the spiraling stone stairs to the exterior of the enormous dome, for spectacular views. Stretching as far as the Eiffel Tower and Montmartre, Paris is laid out before you  in all her beauty.

Away from the tourist traps, discover the real Latin Quarter, with quiet tree-lined streets and pretty squares roamed by cats and stylish students. You’ll see the Sorbonne: founded in 1237 it’s one of the oldest and most famous universities in Europe and we’ll end our exploration close to the iconic Cathedral of Notre Dame. Ravaged by fire in April 2019, she still stands proudly, thanks to the mastery of her 13th century builders, and we’ll witness the ongoing restoration as she turns this next page of her long history.

We’ll end our tour at the mythical bookstore Shakespeare and Company – the original store was the gathering place for literary legends described by Hemingway in A Moveable Feast. Spend a morning exploring the authentic Latin Quarter, one of the oldest and most atmospheric neighborhoods of Paris.
