Les Arènes de Lutèce: Paris’ Gallo-Roman amphitheatre.

Les Arènes de Lutèce: Paris’ Gallo-Roman amphitheatre.

One of Paris’ most important archeological remains of the Gallo-Roman era, les Arènes de Lutèce was built in the first century AD. It is believed that this amphitheater could seat up to 17000 spectators and was the stage for both theater and gladiatorial combat. After the barbaric invasions which took place during the 3rd century AD, the arena became a cemetery that was later filled in completely. It wasn’t until 1869, during the opening of Rue Monge, that the arena was discovered. Without the determination of Victor Hugo and a few others to save it from destruction, les Arènes de Lutèce might have fallen forever into oblivion!

Whether you go there for a pétanque game, to sunbath, draw, practice your ball-juggling, eat or rest, there will always be room for you to sit down and contemplate how much time has passed while enjoying a moment of peace in the heart of a busy city. Also, just like in all of Paris’ parks there’s free Wi-Fi at les Arènes de Lutèce.

Bonjour Vietnam: Vietnamese food in Paris.

Bonjour Vietnam: Vietnamese food in Paris.

*UPDATE: CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP AND APPARENTLY NO LONGER THE PLACE IT USED TO BE.

Bonjour Vietnam in Paris is the place for really good Vietnamese food in Paris.
The restaurant has only 4 tables (2 for two and 2 for four)! You can make a reservation if you want to make sure you have a table.
Recently a few changes have been made to the menu and the prices went up a bit, but the quality is the same: top of the line. Make sure you order the Bo Bun—the best I’ve had so far (12€), the summer roll (beef roll for 12€) the Vietnamese pork crêpes (8€) and the ravioli (awesome).
