Located off boulevard Saint-Germain, this small hidden alley provides a glimpse of what Paris might have looked like in medieval times. The pedestrianised, cobblestoned alley is tucked behind buildings and is accessible through archways that lead into the modern streets. The charming alley contains several shops and a couple of historic café's and restaurants, including le Procope, one of Paris' oldest dating from the 17th century. Le Procope is known to have been frequented by many literary and historic figures, such as Voltaire.
