The Cluny is an exceptional due to its unique architectural setting. The extraordinary collection is housed in Roman baths and a medieval abbey. Do not miss the mysterious contemplative beauty of the Lady and the Unicorn tapestry series.

France's official medieval museum. Great tapestry collection! Not crowded. The building is an old Roman bath, that became an abbots residents. They have the original saints from the Notre Dame facade and explain the rapid development of Gothic art.

On on recommendation from a local we visited this wonderful museum. It definitely did not disappoint, the highlight is the unicorn tapestries (which were stunning). However the building and everything in it adds to the experience.

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
