The Latin Quarter walking tour explores one of the most famous parts of the “Rive Gauche” (Left Bank) of Paris. The Latin Quarter has been the land of students for over 1,000 years, and possibly the world’s single greatest source of artistic inspiration – from Salvador Dali to Woody Allen, and from Hemingway and Joyce to Vargas Llosa.
In our tour, travellers will visit some of the most amazing spots of the bohemian Paris such as the Sorbonne University, the Pantheon, the bookstore Shakespeare and co., the hotel Cluny, the oldest cinema in Paris, to end in the magnificent Gardens of Luxembourg.
The Latin Quarter tour will take you through the heart of Parisian history and touches on everything from Medieval times to the great intellectuals on the planet. This is where Paris began many centuries ago and continues to be one of the most vibrant areas of the city.
