  • 18 Feb 2023
  • 11:00 AM
  • Outside Denfert-Rochereau RER station (big white building)


  • Course attendees

Registration is closed


A walk with something for everyone: trains, lions, film-makers, philosophers, human remains and accordions. We start at Denfert-Rochereau RER station, window-shop in the rue Daguerre, look at some lovely buildings and find out where some of the world's most famous artists lived and worked. We then visit the resting-place of three of the local residents who never left the area in Montparnasse Cemetery… You will also find out why it’s no longer the Gateway to Hell!
