Human remains of millions of Parisians lie 135 feet underground at the Paris Catacombs (Les Catacombes). The 14th arrondissement attraction doesn't appeal to all, but for those who are interested, here’s how to make the most of this subterranean experience.
Café de Flore
As one of the most famous cafés in Paris, Café de Flore requires very little presentation. This establishment is indeed nothing short of legendary, thanks to the legacy left by some of its most prestigious customers – lovebirds Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre, along with our contemporary intelligentsia and trendsetters. Besides its famous clientele, the café is also noted for its sunny and flowery terrace; in fact, getting coffee at Café de Flore is regarded as one of the most quintessentially Parisian things visitors can do.
Café de Flore is not only illustrious because of its patrons; it’s also one of the longest-running coffeehouses in Paris, having first opened its doors in the 1880s during the Third Republic. It was named after a sculpture of the Roman goddess of flowers, Flora.
