The Sorbonne neighbourhood corresponds to the 20th administrative district of Paris and is located northwest of the 5th arrondissement. For information, it covers 43.3 hectares.
For a more accurate idea of its location, it lies north of the Val de Grâce district, east of the 6th arrondissement, south of the 4th arrondissement and east of the Saint-Victor district.
To locate its border more precisely, we suggest you start with Place Edmond Rostand which is situated in its southwestern corner. Then, you can go up along Boulevard Saint-Michel until you reach Place Saint-Michel. At the latter, you have to turn right in order to take Quai Saint-Michel and Quai de Montebello. When you reach Rue du Haut Pavé, take this street and continue through Rue Frédéric Sauton, and part of Rue Monge and then pass by Rue de la Montagne Sainte Geneviève, Rue Descartes and Rue Mouffetard. Finally, at Place de la Contrescarpe, we invite you to go to Rue Blainville, and follow Rue de l’Estrapade, Rue des Fossés Saint-Jacques, Rue de Malebranche, part of Rue le Goff and finally Rue Soufflot.
