  • Once the restoration is complete this will be a beautiful square, (Place Jussieu) with the fontaine (the Mouth of Truth), taking pride of place, created by sculptor guy larrigue in 1993-94. Note...  more »

  • Go there really early. Best to be there when it opens so you won't have to wait 30 min or more just to take a picture with the Bocca. À popular photo pose is to stick your hand into its holes. Legends say liars will loose their hand by doing so.
  • We went right after it opened at 9 a.m. Our kids LOVED IT! Definitely worth our 5 minutes in line for some hilarious family pictures and something fun to talk about.
  • Short queue times and friendly guy making sure people dont cut the line. Its a novelty place, only need 2 minutes for a quick photo. Good for a quick laugh
  • Beautiful sculpture to take a photo with (for free/with a donation). Cool meaning of the sculpture. The line is unfortunately sometimes even in rain really long...Around 250m from Circus Maximus and close to the river so it;s easily accessible.
  • Seems very popular and there was a queue to enter. The mouth of truth can be seeing from outside within a few feet. It seems that everyone wants to try it. There are two more important monuments just in front of this place and Circus Maximus is within 200 meters
