When the mythical becomes a reality
How do you fancy climbing on the roof of one of them most famous universities in France? Two evenings a week, the French Astronomical Society organises group visits for a maximum of 5 people. So in a little party, you climb the hundreds of steps to reach the Sorbonne Observatory, a legendary university and one of the most famous on the planet! And speaking of planets, it's from this observatory that you will be able to reveal the wonders of the heavens!
Nestled 40 metres up, the observatory is a great spot from which to discover Paris in perfect calm!
Far, far away from the crowds of tourists at the top of the Eiffel Tower. And almost close enough to touch the stars. Parisian pollution is somewhat in control, so the planets are not always very clear! But you can enjoy an unobstructed 360º view over Paris! An additional bonus: the observatory is surrounded by a balcony which goes around the dome. Don't forget your camera!

Mother, bohemian and Parisian, I love Paris' cosmopolitan side and warmth. Exhibitions, walks, outings with the children...I'll take you on a discovery of the most welcoming places in Paris. My little extra: with my love of food as my compass, I always set course for the best lemon tarts in the city.
