Description

The name "Latin District" is an allusion to the fact that university courses were held in the district only in Latin, during the Middle Ages. So, not surprisingly our journey begins in the world's most famous library Shakespeare & Company, frequented by great writers like Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Millen and Joyce. Trampling on the soil of an ancient Merovingian cemetery, we will discover the legend of St. Julian the Poor and the origins of the university in France. A dip in medieval Paris at the Cluny Museum, then a stop at the Sorbonne. In the wake of the Master Woody Allen we will retrace the places of his film Midnight in Paris. Still, we will admire the majestic Pantheon in Paris, we will not miss the green Luxembourg garden of Maria de' Medici and a we'll stop at the Odeon theater.
