Latin Quarter Tour
Experience the intellectual heart and soul of Paris
Left Bank of the Seine, Paris, France (Panthéon)
The 5th and 6th Arrodissements, better known as the Latin Quarter, have been the intellectual capital of France since the founding of its famed university, the Sorbonne, in 1263. The Latin Quarter's students have been has been at the heart of all the transformative movements in French history - everything from the French Revolution to the student uprising in May of 1968.
Today, the same famed cafes that such luminaries as Picasso and Hemingway frequented still line St. Germain Boulevard, and while times have changed, the essence of the Latin Quarter remains as it has always been - progressive, edgy, and lively. Bookstores, cafes, art galleries, and an ever-increasing number of international bistros make the Latin Quarter a can't-miss destination during your trip to Paris.
Your Aeon Latin Quarter Tour will show you the true Latin Quarter. From the perfectly manicured Luxembourg Gardens to the lively Mouff' street market to the arches of the Notre Dame Cathedral, none of the Quarter's storied streets will be missed. Your tour will also include a visit to the Pantheon, the burial place of some of France's most famous citizens and the Conciergerie, the brutal prison that held Marie Antoinette before her execution.
Don't miss your chance to sample the vibrant neighborhood that is the Quartier Latin today.
