We had a tour and corporate dinner and stunning space. Interesting tour at the beginning but not sure it is worth much more than an hour or so to visit as not much to see other than the stunning building.

This very old religious building has been recently renovated and turned into a public exposition space. The vaulted ceilings are impressive and it works well for exhibits. Ancient Paris.

We visited the College after touring St. Etienne du Mont Church and walked downhill here to visit it's modern art exhibition. There's a lovely cantine within the monastery. It's a social service project operated by Total.

The sublime geometry of the 13th-century Gothic cloister provides a stunning space in pale beige sandstone. This area is often used for exhibitions, and it is worth visiting just for the architecture. Part of the structure, a large chapel apparently, has been converted into a...More

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
