We visited the Panthéon monument on a free Sunday morning in November. There were no lines at the door. Very grand, formerly a church and now a burial place of VIP's. The inside is beautiful with all the details and loads of artwork to see....More
The Pantheon is the resting place of some of France's greatests. The monument itself looks stunning both from the outside and from the inside. Definitely worth visithing. With the Paris Pass you can skip the queue and go in without waiting and any further fees....More

The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are 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
the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
