"Bloody Past" Moufftard/Arène de Lutèce/Mosque/IMA Tip by Rixie

  L'Arène de Lutèce
by Rixie

I had heard that little remained of L’Arène de Lutèce, the last Roman ruins in Paris, so I expected to see maybe part of a wall and a couple of steps. I was amazed to discover that it’s an entire arena! It's now located in a calm and quiet neighborhood. Hard to imagine gladiators fighting one another to the death, blood pooling in the sand.

Métro: Place de Monge or Jussieu. Follow the signs.
