Short description

Walking around the Latin Quarter, we will travel in time from the origins of the city to the present day. This area has always been at the epicenter of events. Its narrow streets soaked in history are remembered by everyone: Gallic tribes under the oppression of the Romans and the birth of Paris, gladiatorial battles, the appearance of the first churches and cathedrals, the appearance of the famous Sorbona and other universities, the kings of France and the heroes of novels by Alexander Dumas, the first sparks of the revolution and its flame.

On our tour you will find out where Ernest Hemingway wrote his novels and short stories, what Sainte Genevieve did for the city, how the only Rococo church was preserved, and even find out in which cafe Napoleon Bonaparte paid with his cocked hat!

Together we will look into the Luxembourg Gardens, admire the Pantheon, take a walk along the oldest New Bridge and find out where the shooting of Woody Allen’s movie “Midnight in Paris” took place.

And we will end with the legend of the Holy Grail and other treasures of the Knights Templar in a secret place on the island of Cité, with an incredible view. Where you are likely to come back to watch the most beautiful sunset in Paris!
