Lutetia, Paris

3.4
Considered a significant historical location, Lutetia was a town in pre-Roman and Roman Gaul and the ancestor of present-day Paris. Very little is now left of the ancient city, although more is currently being discovered. In a small park on high ground in the Latin Quarter of the Left Bank, tucked behind apartment blocks, you can still see some remains of the 1st century amphitheater, or Arènes de Lutèce. You can also find remains of public baths at the Musée de Cluny and the Early Christian archeological crypt under the Notre Dame forecourt, now Place of Pope John-Paul II.

Explore a little more to find a road dating back 2,000 years, discovered at the site during expansion of the campus on University of Pierre and Marie Curie. During the excavation here, remains of private houses containing Roman baths and heated floors were found.

As a result, if you look into the meaning of the word "Lutetia" finally realized. A Japanese translation and "Lutetia" or "rtekia". When the Roman army conquered France, current Paris Cité Centre parisii tribe living the Cité village "rtekia" is known as was so. Roman who ruled this place is eventually deepen the rule around the city named "rtekia" derives from the tribe of parisii (Parisii), we are no longer used (Paris) and that settled the city name.

  • This hotel is one of the most famous hotels on the left bank of Paris. It was built in the early 20th century in the art nouveau style and now rises majestically over the surrounding landscape

  • Slow service and inside smelled of urine wafting up from the toilets below! Nice to sit outside and watch people drift by. Drinks are expensive.
  • wonderful little spot recommended by friend. Had snails, red fish with lobster sauce and rice, creme brûlée topped it off. waiter was excellent and Francois at bar and manager was super. will eat there again before leaving Paris
  • Friendly waiter and nice food.
  • Very rude waiter. He asked me if I would have change.
  • DO NOT GO!! If I could leave 0 stars I would. Horribly rude service that makes you feel like an exploitable consumer. No kind of politeness whatsoever. Food was below any kind of decency. Not even the piece of toast. Do not trust a café by its looks.
