Rue de la Harpe

30/07/2009

The Rue de la Harpe is a pedestrian street in Paris situated in the Latin Quarter (Quartier Latin), a neighborhood at the left bank of Seine River (Rive Gauche). The cobblestone pavement and the variety of commerce and restaurants along its length give to this ancient street a particular atmosphere.

Its origin dates from the Roman times, and today there still are a few constructions from the Louis XV period. This touristic pedestrian area is filled with Greek restaurants, souvenir stores, cafes and crêperies. It’s usual to see the owners of the places standing outside and offering bargains to the pedestrians.

The street is charming for a night walk, when you can have an idea of why Paris is called the City of Lights.
