Paris' Oldest District - the Latin Quarter



Quartier Latin, Paris, France
30 mins

About the tour

Do you remember where you were born? Well if you were the city of Paris you would because the answer is right here in the Latin Quarter almost 2,000 years ago! This part of the city is riddled with Roman streets, some of the city's oldest houses and even its oldest tree. It's no wonder that it was a favourite for Hemingway and other great writers. Combine its ancient tales with the beauty of the Luxembourg Gardens and a glimpse of Notre-Dame and we're set for a pretty spectacular tour!

Meet your local guide


It's an understatement to say Florent knows Paris. Born in this wonderful city, Florent says he confidently knows every nook and cranny. Having completed over 2000 tours, we believe him. He's a self declared history, art and archaeology buff. What he loves most is sharing the best parts (and dirty secrets) of Paris with you!

Florent has been guiding since Aug 2010

A really good tour. Although I have visited Paris numerous times, I learned new things on the tour. We love to spend time in the Luxembourg Gardens, in the summer when the flowers are simply amazing. Many thank. Frances
