What to expect

Explore the mythical Latin Quarter of Paris with an expert local guide, and marvel at some of the best views of the city! Home of writers and scholars, this vibrant and eclectic neighborhood is old Paris at it’s best. Walk in the footsteps of the iconic writers and poets, discover winding cobbled streets, quirky bookshops, lively cafés and art-house cinemas.

For centuries the Latin Quarter has been home to the thinkers and intellectuals of France. Your local Parisian guide will take you on an insider stroll around one of the oldest and most evocative neighborhoods of Paris. These charming streets were the headquarters of the Lost Generation of writers, poets and artists who lived and wrote in Paris, immortalizing their lives here in print. In the course of the tour, you’ll get to see the mythical bookstore Shakespeare and Company, the gathering place for literary legends and the place where James Joyce’s Ulysses was first published. You'll also be taken to the top of the majestic Pantheon, sitting high upon a hill overlooking the Latin Quarter. You'll go behind the scenes, with pre-reserved entry, and you'll be taken up the spiraling stone stairs to the exterior of the enormous dome, for a spectacular view over Notre Dame Cathedral that stretches as far as the Eiffel Tower and Montmartre.

Your tour will then continue on towards the river, past the exquisite, historic Church of St Etienne du Mont and away from the tourist traps, to discover the real Latin Quarter, with tree-lined streets and pretty squares roamed by cats and stylish students. At the end of the experience, you'll be taken to the iconic Cathedral of Notre Dame that proudly stands thanks to the mastery of her 13th-century builders. Once the tour is over, you may like to stop for lunch in one of the local cafés of the neighborhood or continue your explorations of this fascinating area. Your guide will be happy to offer tips and suggestions to ensure you enjoy the best of this iconic Paris.
