Paris Latin Quarter Walking Tour

Visit the beautiful major landmarks that exist in Paris' Latin Quarter


Dear Guests,
Due to citywide protests happening this Thursday (December 5th) in Paris, it is expected that there will be major delays across the city's public transport network. We therefore recommend, where possible, that you seek alternative routes to our meeting point and that you plan your commute accordingly

ABOUT THE Paris Latin Quarter Walking Tour

Join an expert local guide for a 2-hour walking tour through the beautiful and fascinating Latin Quarter. See why writers like Hemingway called it home, visit the French philosphers memorialized in the Panthéon, and stroll through beautiful sites like the Luxembourg Gardens.


Your Latin Quarter Tour meets at the fountain at Place Saint Michel and usually ends by the Panthéon or the Luxembourg Gardens.


Keep your cameras at the ready

Taking a walking tour through Paris' Latin Quarter is truly something special, and will help you to take beautiful photos that will make your friends at home jealous! You'll marvel at the impressive Panthéon (the memorial to great French philosophers), you'll stroll past the Cluny Museum, and we recommend the fountain outside Paris' Sorbonne University for a great picture.

A neighborhood of literary and artistic greats

Your expert local guide will start this tour by leading you over to the famous Bookstore Shakespeare and Co., a tribute to the store originally owned by Sylvia Beach and the local hangout for meetings between literary greats like Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce and Ezra Pound. From there, you'll walk past places like the oldest cinema in Paris, Hemingway and Joyce's houses, and see sites from where Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris was filmed.

Hear the incredible stories from the Latin Quarter

Beyond taking amazing photos of major Parisian landmarks, and seeing where some of history's greatest writers were inspired, you'll also hear some of the incredible stories from inside Paris' Latin Quarter. See the Church of Sainte Genevieve, the patron saint of Paris, and hear about her efforts in keeping Attila the Hun from Paris, and learn about one of history's greatest love stories, the incredible real-life tale of Heloise and Abelard.
