Today your private guide will meet you at your hotel and you will discover the legendary Left Bank district. It is by far the smallest section of Paris, and historically known as the artistic part of the city. This is where many of the famous writers and artists called home – including Picasso, Matisse, and Hemingway.
The Latin Quarter, named by Rabelais after the students & professors who spoke Latin in the classrooms & the streets, contains more history & beautiful monuments than any other part of Paris. During this relaxing walk you will make your way from the Pantheon, the final resting place of France’s most famous citizens, to the manicured Luxembourg gardens via the infamous Boulevard St Michel. You will also enjoy walking through the beautiful St Germain des Pres with its art galleries & swanky boutiques.
You will also discover the magnificent & historical Notre Dame cathedral located on Ile de la Cité. From there, you can continue on to Ile St Louis - probably one of the prettiest neighborhoods in Paris, with its elegant 17th century townhouses lining the quais next to the Seine. You will find charming gift shops, wonderful bookstores, specialty food shops, and we will not forget to mention the famous Bertillon ice creams and sorbets where you will be able to treat yourself.
