In 1253, a college for 16 poor students who wanted to study theology was created at Louis IX's request. It became the Sorbonne as Robert de Sorbon, the king's confessor, gave his name to the school. After 1885, it became the most important university in France; and, nowadays, it is still one of the most important universities in Paris. The Sorbonne Church was built according to the will of Richelieu between 1635 and 1642. In the church, you can admire his grave, carved by François Girardon. The dome was painted by the famous painter Philippe de Champaigne. Group tours (from 10 to 30 people) are regularly organised to allow visitors to discover the richness of the Sorbonne’s heritage. Visits lasting one and a half hours on average take place by appointment from Monday to Friday and on one Saturday per month.

Situated on the border between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter, the Luxembourg Gardens, inspired by the Boboli Gardens in Florence, were created upon the initiative of Queen Marie de Medici in 1612. The gardens, which cover 25 hectares of land, are split into French gardens and English gardens. Between the two, lies a geometric forest and a large pond. There is also an orchard with a variety of old and forgotten apples, an apiary for you to learn about bee-keeping and greenhouses with a collection of breathtaking orchids and a rose garden. The garden has 106 statues spread throughout the park, the monumental Medici fountain, the Orangerie and the Pavillon Davioud. There are many activities and facilities for children such as puppets, rides and slides. Adults, whether they are Parisians or tourists, can play chess, tennis, and bridge or remote control boats. The cultural programme is characterized by free photography exhibitions on the garden railings and by concerts in the bandstand.



The visit begins on the Boulevard Saint-Michel, where even before entering the museum, you can admire the vestiges of Gallo-Roman baths. Fast-forward 14 centuries and find yourself in the superb courtyard of the Hôtel de Cluny, built at the end of the 15th century. The museum’s collections include art from antiquity to Renaissance times and feature some veritable masterpieces, including the Pilier des Nautes from the 1st century, and the six tapestries that make up La Dame à la Licorne (The Lady with the Unicorn), dating from the 15th century.
