Tour description

Return with us to the old Paris, where everything began to make this city the most beautiful in the world.
The Latin Quarter of Paris, with roots dating back to the Middle Ages, is a historical and cultural enclave in the heart of the city. Named for being the epicenter of learning and Latin at the former Sorbonne University, the neighborhood has been a meeting point for students, intellectuals and artists for centuries. It emerged as an academic center and became a crucible of thought, creativity and rebellion. From the student struggles of 1968 to the vibrant artistic and literary scene, the Latin Quarter remains a symbol of Parisian bohemianism and a place where history and contemporaneity converge in the cobblestone streets, literary cafes and iconic monuments that define it. .
Our tour begins at the Saint Michel fountain, one of the most impressive fountains in the entire city whose protagonist is the archangel Michael with a sword in hand, from there we will go to the street of the Fishing Cat, the narrowest street in Paris. and that its name is due to a peculiar history. Later we will go to the Shakespeare and Company bookstore, one of the most important bookstores in Paris and with a great tradition due to the historical figures who came to be inside the bookstore, such as the writer Ernest Hemingway and others. Afterwards, we will continue with the tour until we reach the church of San Julien le Pauvre , the first headquarters of the University of Paris.
And if you like the tour, get ready because I will take you to the San Severino church, then we will go to the Cluny museum, which has a history that will leave you speechless.
We will continue with the tour towards the Place de la Sorbonne , from there the tour continues in the direction of the Place du Pantheon in Paris . This monument houses the remains of such illustrious personalities as Marie Curie and Victor Hugo.
We will end the tour in front of the Saint Étienne du Mont church,
a church whose history dates back to the 11th century. In addition, in front of it is where scenes in the famous film Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen are filmed.
