Stroll through Hemingway's Paris

Embark on a small-group guided exploration of the Latin Quarter, one of Paris's oldest neighborhoods. Historically a bohemian enclave, it earned the name "Latin Quarter" during the Middle Ages when residents, predominantly students and clergymen, conversed in Latin. Your expert Parisian guide, fluent in English, will accompany you through the area where literary icons like Hemingway, Joyce, and the Lost Generation authors lived, worked, and congregated. This 1.5-hour walking tour will lead you to quirky cafes and the renowned Parisian bookshop, Shakespeare & Company, a significant meeting place for expatriate writers in the 1920s, including notable figures such as Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein.

Explore a piece of History

Home to prestigious educational institutions, the area includes the esteemed Sorbonne and Collège de France, with the Sorbonne dating back to 1150 as one of the world's oldest universities. Perched on Mont St-Geneviève, a former church transformed into a nonreligious mausoleum, it serves as the eternal resting place for luminaries including Hugo, Zola, Rousseau, Voltaire, and Curie. Adjacent to the Panthéon, a stroll unveils St-Étienne-du-Mont church, boasting an intricately adorned shrine venerating Saint Geneviève, one of Paris's esteemed patron saints.
