The Unknown Soldier

jeudi, octobre 30th, 2008

Under the Arch of Triumph lays the grave of the unknown soldier that became a memorial to the fallen of WWI. A candle was lit in 1923 and its flame has  burnt constantly since then. War veterans gatherings take place there every week and selected sections of the French army and police act as masters of ceremony.

Restaurant : Au Petit Bistrot

jeudi, octobre 30th, 2008

If you are looking for a decently priced restaurant (menus at €15) on the touristic street « Rue Mouffetard », don’t hesitate to enter in « Au Petit Bistrot ». You will get a surprising French cuisine menu with some Greek influence. The decoration is cozy and the tables lit by candles at night. Definitely a place where you get good value for your money, contrarly to many restaurants located on touristic routes.
