As a solo traveller with a limited grasp of French, I was looking for an activity that I could undertake one evening where those restrictions wouldn't hinder my enjoyment, and this seemed perfect. I really enjoyed the concert, a Chopin recital, which lasted around an...More

This church is used for small concert venues. The musicians are mostly young students playing solo. The acoustics are very good and with it seating only 80 people, it is like having a musician in your living room. It is well worth the effort to...More

Last year we attended two concerts at St. Ephrem with 12 euro discounted tickets from billetreduc. They were well worth that price, as the musicians are young and certainly not famous. We found today, September 11, that there are no discounted tickets available until November,...More

We love the concerts in this tiny old church. The young musicians are always very impressive and play with enthusiasm and enjoyment. The audience is appreciative. The soft candlelight adds to the atmosphere. A wonderful experience.

This is very lovely and quaint church close to the Pantheon. During the summer (at least), there are recitals by young musicians from the National Conservatory of Music of Paris that occur in the chapel. We were fortunate to see Elizaveta Frolova, a gifted and...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
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
