Get out in the open and rid yourself of any technological constraints with free wireless access at the Arènes de Lutèce. This amphitheatre was built by the Romans in the first century and was initially used as a theatre, sporting venue and circus. Discovered in the 1860s when nearby Rue
Monge was constructed, the arena was restored thanks to the support of the artistic community of the time, including Victor Hugo. Now, you can take advantage of modern-day technology as you browse for your favourite Romans. And if you tire of your laptop, why not take to the arena for a game of boules?

Square des Arènes de Lutèce: 47 Rue Monge, 75005. Métro: Place Monge,
Cardinal Lemoine, Jussieu.
