Take this walking tour with a difference - led by a Ph.D. level scholar/historian our supplier will provide you with an in-depth alternative to traditional tours, pairing intellectually curious and adventurous travellers with specialists for an in-depth cultural experience. Bohemian cafes, narrow cobblestone streets and medieval churches, they all give the Left Bank of Paris its eternal charm. This walk takes you past some of the districts most important sites and its hidden side streets to give you a real feel for the history of Saint Germain and the Latin Quarter. The Left Bank is both an eccentric and ecclesiastic area. It was here that Romans founded their city, Lutetia, 2000 years ago. After the decline of the empire, the land south of the Seine became the home to abbeys and monasteries and with the 13th century it flourished as the academic center around the Sorbonne University, implanting the district's intellectual roots. It wasn't until later in the 20th century, that artists, writers and other thinkers joined this group, fostering a lively bohemian community. We will start in front of the Saint Germain-des-Pres, one of the oldest churches in Paris. You may have a look at other churches such as Saint Sulpice or the Pantheon and pass alongside the Luxembourg gardens. After the Latin Quarter we'll wind up our stroll around Place Saint Michel, convenient place for you to have a drink or hop on the metro, hopefully with a better understanding of the city.
