The 5th arrondissement has been home to the Quartier Latin for eight hundred years. Lutèce, ancient Paris, was born on the slopes of the 5th. The arrondissement saw the first glimmer of Roman civilization, anorexic saints, bewigged intellectuals, and pavement‐throwing anarchists.

The 5th is eternally old and new. Students mill along Le Boul’ Mich’ (Boulevard Saint Michel) and indulge in beer‐fueled debauchery in the pre‐medieval hills of the Montagne Sainte Geneviève.The Latin Quarter is the epicenter of historical and classic Paris.

Start your trip back in time from the Place de la Sorbonne. The dome of the Sorbonne houses the Grand Ampithéâtre constructed by the notorious Cardinal Richelieu.

Walk up the Boulevard Saint Michel (against traffic) heading towards the Panthéon. At the roundabout of Rue Soufflot you’ll see the lush Luxembourg Gardens on your right, and the majestic Panthéon to your left.

Between the Panthéon’s neoclassical columns lie the “Great men (and women) of France”;Voltaire, Rousseau, Marie Curie, Alexandre Dumas and others who brought honor to La Patrie. The Panthéon’s honeycombed dome and gothic interior are especially impressive feats of architecture.

Look at the area surrounding the Panthéon, and notice the Lycée Henri IV (the most elite high school in Paris), the Law and Economics departments of the Sorbonne and a church built on the site of a pagan temple and containing the tomb of Saint Geneviève. The Montagne Sainte‐Geneviève’s namesake was a young nun who significantly influenced the political forces in her day (500 A.D). Her religious fervor was so strong that she voluntarily became anorexic which contributed to her harrowed appearance, yet she somehow managed to divert Attila the Hun’s attack on Paris.

Continue your journey on the northern side of the Panthéon following the Place du Panthéon to the Rue Cujas. Turn right onto the Rue Saint Jacques. Notice you’re walking behind the main building of La Sorbonne! Imagine you’re a rebel student in May 1968 or in theology class with Cardinal Richelieu.

Turn left on the Rue du Sommerard and you’ll stumble on the Place Paul Painlevé.

Without a doubt the Musée de Cluny – Musée National du Moyen Âge is one of the most fascinating museums in Paris. The Musée de Cluny rests on the ruins of Gallo‐Roman baths clearly visible from within the museum. In addition to inspired temporary exhibits on Parisian history, the museum’s permanent collection includes the famous La Dame à la Licorne (The Lady and the Unicorn) tapestry. A charming medieval garden is attached to the museum. Have a calming moment amidst roses, hyssop, climbing flowers and herbs, and vegetal medicinal remedies from the Middle Ages.

Exit the museum and make your way to the Boulevard Saint Michel. Walk with the flow of traffic towards the Seine. Facing the river is the quintessential Parisian meeting spot – Fontaine Saint Michel. Friends, students and lovers have been meeting at the fountain for generations.

Walk along the Quai Saint Michel towards Notre Dame. On the right, just off the Quai de Montebello, is the iconic bookstore Shakespeare and Company. Since the late George Whitman opened the doors in 1951, the jam-packed English‐language bookstore has been a haven for young writers and literary luminaries including Anaïs Nin, Allen Ginsberg, and Henry Miller. The counter‐culture vibe and the bohemian spirit of the 1960s still flourish in the tiny world‐renowned shop.

Passing Shakespeare and Company, the partially hidden Eglise Saint‐Julien‐Le‐Pauvre is on the right just up the Rue Saint-Julien-LePauvre. Take a peek into the courtyard just north of the church. In the center of Square René Viviani is the oldest tree in Paris. The locust tree planted in 1601 can be recognized by the concrete crutches holding it aloft.

Take a leisurely stroll along the Quai de la Tournelle and check out the bouquinistes (book sellers) on the banks of the Seine.

The Institut du Monde Arabe and its Jean Nouvel‐designed building stakes its claim at the intersection of the Pont de Sully and Quai de la Tournelle. The Institut du Monde Arabe hosts art exhibits, music and performances, lectures, and public programs designed to expose Arab culture and promote intercultural dialogue and discovery.

Leave the Institut du Monde Arabe and walk along the Quai Saint-Bernard. On balmy summer nights, the sounds of tango music can be heard on Sunday evenings at the Jardin Tino Rossi. Amateur and professional tango dancers converge for colorful, sensual spontaneous performances.

Continue along the Quai Saint‐Bernard to the Jardin de Plantes. The major botanical garden of Paris is a favorite of joggers. The garden itself includes a school of botany, beautiful glass hothouses, and rose gardens. The Grande Galerie de l’Évolution within the Muséum national d’Histoire Naturelle is the only place in town to meet rare, extinct, and flat out bizarre specimens of evolution. The Galerie’s jewel‐box ceiling and regal architecture guarantees something suited to everyone’s interests.

Adjacent to the Grande Galerie de l’Évolution on the Rue Linné and Rue Daubenton is the much loved Grande Mosquée de Paris. The largest mosque in France is friendly and welcoming to Muslims and non‐ Muslims alike. The gorgeous Hispano‐Moresque structure, with graceful arcades, eye‐popping desert colors and mosaics, is a sight to behold. The tea salon within the mosque is arguably the best in Paris, as are the vigorous hammam massages.
