Taste of the Latin Quarter
About this tour
Throughout its long history, the Latin Quarter has hosted the city’s most prestigious educational institutions, along with an eclectic mix of students. More recently, and more in keeping with our gluttonous aims, the area has seen the arrival of prize-winning cheesemongers, sweet shops and other food artisans.
What we’ll taste
In addition to sampling savory charcuterie and cheeses from one of the most historic cheese affineurs in town along with bread and wine, we’ll be sharing a wide array of treats along the sweet spectrum. That includes chocolates from the hand of a Meilleur Ouvrier de France (an MOF – the highest rank for a French chocolatier), and the city’s best lemon tart. Although we will be sampling a bit along the way, the bulk of our tasting and discussion will take place while seated in a comfortable wine shop where we can select and pair different wines to enjoy with the wonderful items we’ve collected during our walk.
Price for a small group tour: 110€ per person, including all tastings. Our tours are all conducted in English and last approximately three hours. This tour will finish with a seated tasting that includes wine, but we’ll be on our feet and moving for at least two hours throughout the tour. We’ll send you the exact meeting point upon booking, but you can plan to begin near the Censier-Daubenton métro stop and finish near the Place Monge métro stop. We maintain very small group sizes and are unable to add guests to tours that don’t have enough available tickets. Send us an email if your desired dates are sold out or if you have any other questions. We hope to meet you soon!
