The Sorbonne is one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in Paris. As we walked to the Pantheon we walked right past it. We also saw it from the top of the Pantheon.

Located within a few steps from Notre Dame cathedral, You can admire one side of the beautiful Sorbonne University building and enjoy a drink, a meal, street music players or just some coffee. Loads of students hanging around, screaming, drinking or just having lunch.

Quartier Latin
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
