Just after the rue du Cardinal-Lemoine takes off to the NW from the pl,. a short stree looking like a dead end alley leads off it to the right (rue Rollin). At its end is a flight of steps with a fountain of sorts below. The stairs lead to an approach to the rue Monge. (To the right is a Metro entrance). Across Monge on the left (in the rue Lavarre) is the are containing Les Arenes de Lutece with an entrance about 50 m along it. If you consult a map you may find other important lesser sites nearby such as the Jardin des Plantes.

Address: 47, rue Monge et rue de Navarre , 75005
Directions: In Paris 5th, just east of Rue Monge and behind L'institut du monde arabe. Metro Monge.
