From the Middle Ages to the XIXth century


The Parisians call it the "Quartier Latin", you will love it too!

For the unforgettable view of the river, the maze of small medieval streets, the unique outdoor book stalls lining the riverbank, , the charm of Saint Julien le Pauvre, the dramatic look of Saint Michael slaying the devil at the fountain…

The district is today a popular hangout for students, yet a prominent tourist attraction with deep historical roots. It is a lovely leisurely walk for the first encounter with Paris.

Itinerary

We will start in the shadow of Notre Dame to talk about the origin of Paris and about how the Gothic style was born in the Ile de France , then walk through some narrow cobbled streets in what was once Lutetia, passing the charming Viviani square , the one and only Sylvia Beach's Shakespeare and Co, Saint Severin flamboyant Gothic church, heading afterwards to Place Saint-Michel, the heart of the Latin Quarter. Last will be the ancient Roman baths housing the Cluny Museum.
