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.

The building has old and beautiful architecture. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get in because only students were allowed. I was quite disapointed to see all the dust and garbage surrounding this historical building - there were homeless people everywhere, it was stinking all down...More

I don't know why I thought that you could get inside this building. Only students are allowed in, and while my boyfriend found the historical significance of this building interesting, I was very bored. It didn't help that it was raining the day we went,...More

We were out walking and found ourselves in the complex of the Sorbonne. As retired teachers, we loved the college feel of the area and the wonderful architecture. How it would be good to be young and go to school here!

I have been trying to get into the interior for a while but you need student access. the building is massive as is its history but you can't go into the courtyard. Bummer.

Sorbonne district provides a good stroll and cheap student haunts, oozing an atmosphere of intellectual conversation in the background. Also littered with some quirky shops for shopping around.

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
