Be sure to visit from the side of Place de la Sorbonne for the nice view of the building. The cafes around are overpriced. You can continue walking on the Boulevard St Michel then.

Located in the Latin Quarter and close to the Palais du Luxembourg is La Sorbonne, the city's great university. Built in 1253, this is one of the oldest around and had a humble start as a college to just 16 students. Italian poet Dante (1265-1321)...More

PROS: Great architecture, dining, and transport system in this area and throughout the whole city really, top shelf. CONS: Filled with Parisians, lol I think the tourism board may have mandated a course all residents must take on scaling back the smugness...it's just unnecessary but...More

Enjoy your walk in the Latin quarter and admire the exterior of Sorbonne university. Huge buildings with fascinating architecture. Unfortunately entrance is prohibited unless you are a Sorbonne student.

I think the old Sorbonne dates back to the 13th century. It was one of the first universities in the world. In the Latin Quarter you'll find Paris-Sorbonne university which occupies a few historic buildings. Great place to see if you plan a walk in...More

It may be impossible to gain entry due to security, that is if you don't have a university ID. But still the old school buildings are bold and noble and the entire quarter is worth exploring for book stores, cafes, art movie theaters.

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,

dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
