Your local guide will lead you on an enchanting journey through the Latin Quarter’s buzzing street and share intriguing stories about the area’s rich past. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet friendly vendors while stopping by a cheese dairy, a cellar, and arguably one of the best bakeries in the neighborhood.

Once you've settled in, it's time for the main event–a tasting of delectable farm-fresh cheese, each thoughtfully paired with exquisite red and white wines. And, of course, no cheese tasting is complete without a generous serving of artisanal bread and a surprise dessert!
