Tour Description

Traditional haunt of writers and scholars, the vibrant and eclectic Latin Quarter is bohemian Paris at its best. Walk in the footsteps of the iconic writers and poets of the Lost Generation writers who lived and wrote in Paris, immortalizing their lives here in print. Hemingway, Scott Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein and many others found their inspiration here, making Paris of the 1920’s the artistic center of the world.

Today you’ll discover cobbled streets, quirky bookshops and lively cafés. We’ll take you to the very heart of this delightful neighborhood, past glorious outdoor food markets, tree-lined streets and pretty squares roamed by cats and stylish students. See the Sorbonne: founded in 1237, it’s one of the oldest and most famous universities in Europe, and the mighty Pantheon, guarding the remains of France’s most venerable men and women.

Witness the ongoing restoration of the iconic Cathedral of Notre Dame as she turns the next page of her long history. The real Latin Quarter is packed with history and full of surprises.
