Fodor's Review

Like an 18th-century engraving come to life, this charming street arcade is a remnant of ancien Paris with its uneven cobblestones, antique roofs, and Old World façades. Famed for its rabble-rousing inhabitants—journalist Jean-Paul Marat ran the Revolutionary newspaper L'Ami du Peuple at No. 8, and the agitator Georges Danton lived at No. 20—it is also home to Le Procope, Paris's oldest café. The passageway contains a turret from the 12th-century wall

of Philippe-Auguste, which is visible through the windows of Un Dimanche à Paris, a chocolate shop-pastry atelier at No. 4.
