Stop At: Latin Quarter, 75005 Paris France

These two neighborhoods are home to many of the best-known monuments in the French capital. You will learn how Paris evolved from being a medieval town into the world-class European city of today. The centerpiece of the Latin Quarter tour will be the culture of the area. We visit the Sorbonne, the University that produced so many ideas that changed not only France but also the world. You will learn about the history of the University, from its founding in the 13th century to the legendary riots which occurred on the campus in May of 1968.

After visiting the Sorbonne, the Latin Quarter tour continues to the Pantheon which was originally built as a church dedicated to St. Genevieve and to house the reliquary châsse containing her relics but, after many changes, now functions as a secular mausoleum containing the remains of distinguished French citizens. Among those buried in its crypt are Voltaire, Rousseau, Honoré Mirabeau, Marat, Victor Hugo, Émile Zola, Jean Moulin, Marie Curie, René Descartes, and Louis Braille. It’s in this same building that the famous physicist, Foucault, proved the rotation of the earth by hanging his 67-meter pendulum from the dome in 1851.

You will learn the origins of Paris, of the Pantheon, and of Napoleon. On this tour, we visit St. Michel and the Luxembourg Gardens, which so inspired the great French intellectuals. A very inspiring two and a half hours visit.
