Latin Quarter: The Favorite Students Area


Specialised bookshops, renown high schools, cafes, restaurants and places to roam around between two courses... The Latin Quarter is definitely a priviledged place for any student! And though Paris now counts universities all around the town, this quarter has a special place in French people hearts.


Through this tour, discover the great moments of history: the foundation of the oldest public university of France, the student strikes from middle-ages to 1968 and all the beautiful monuments of this lively area.

From what age is the tour recommended?

Children are generally curious about middle-ages. I would recommend this tour from 8 years old. 


How long is the tour?

If you need a short version (family tours or just because you prefer), 2 hours is the minimum to appreciate the Latin Quarter. If you are in no hurry, a 3 hours tour is valued if you want to see the gardens of Luxembourg or explore the eastern side of the Latin Quarter with the Roman arenas.


Is there a day we cannot make this tour?

No, the tour happens rain or shine. Everything is outside, so no timetable to follow.

The tour is between 1.2 and 1.8 miles long. Breaks are possible on the way. 


Is this visit wheelchair accesible ?

Yes, the tour is wheelchair accessible. A readaptation is necessary but nothing impossible.

Dress apropriately for the weather.
