Once upon a time in Paris: go for a stroll in the Latin Quarter (Quartier Latin)
After getting some well-deserved rest in your apartment, let’s go for a stroll through Paris. Take bus route 91 at the Place de la Bastille and stopping at the Jardin des plantes. Take this opportunity to visit the Jardin des plantes and the Grande Mosquée de Paris, which is open every day except on Fridays.

Visit the Arènes de Lutèce (49, rue Monge, 75005 Paris),  which is just 7 minute walk from the Grande Mosquée and will send you back in time. You’ll also get the chance to discover what a true Gallo-Roman amphitheater looks like!
You’ll be able to set aside time during your visit for lunch and a drink in one of the many bars and restaurants located in the nearby Rue Mouffetard.

Next, you can visit the very famous Panthéon, which is located in the very heart of the Latin Quarter, where some of the greatest figures in French history are buried.
Then go down the rue Soufflot in the direction of the Boulevard Saint-Michel, where you can explore the popular Latin Quarter!
For a great dinner, go to the « Procope café », the oldest cafe in Paris and where all the artists and philosophers used to hang on. Also, a true bicorne hat that once belonged to Napoleon is on display there!
If you like jazz and swing music, the Caveau de la Huchette is perfect if you’re looking for an upbeat evening.
