Sorbonne - La Sorbonne, Paris: 32 reviews and 74 photos
L'Université de Paris, better known as La Sorbonne, dates back to 1253. It has a long and rich history of academic excellence and student riots (does May 68 ring any bell?), and among its most illustrious students are Nobel Prize winner and novelist Elie Wiesel, Pierre Elliott Trudeau (former Prime Minister of Canada), Norman Mailer, Jean-Paul Sartre and Jean-Luc Godard, just to name a few. Students come from all over the world to study at La Sorbonne thanks to its great international reputation - in fact, it was a childhood dream of mine to one day study at La Sorbonne; it hasn't come true yet, but at least I got to see it! Or part of it anyways - unfortunately, since September 11, 2001, it is no longer possible to walk around the campus but you can still admire some of its buildings while walking through the streets of the Latin Quarter.
Address: 47 rue des Écoles
