The Sorbonne district has been a lively cultural district since the Middle Ages. A host of historic locations are open to the public.We recommend visiting a few of these top Parisian sites.
The Luxembourg estate
The Musée de Cluny is in a former grand town house built by the Abbot of Cluny as of 1485. The museum still has paintings, sculptures, religious art and much more, including the ancient thermal baths which were built into the building itself.
The Théâtre de l'Europe
The 24-hectare Jardin de Luxembourg was created by Marie de Medici. Once you’ve entered its gates, you can see the palace which is now home to the French Senate and the Musée du Luxembourg, where art exhibitions are now organised. In 1750 it became the first museum to admit the general public.
Not far from the Sorbonne, the Odéon is a Neo-Classical theatre within a listed historical building. Created by architects Marie-Joseph Peyre and Charles De Wailly, the theatre became the esteemed Comédie-Française theatre troupe’s new venue in 1782.
