The Crypte Archéologique is a huge and haunting space extending under the shadow of Notre Dame Cathedral. It is a time capsule which explores the lives and artifacts of the tribes and civilizations of long ago. It includes the remains of a house from Lutèce, the precursor to Paris and numerous Gallo-Roman artifacts, which provide insight into how members of the Roman Empire lived in Paris. It also includes a recreated settlement of the Parisii, the Celtic tribe that first settled on the site of Paris 2000 years ago and from whom the city takes its name.
The Panthéon is a building in the Latin Quarter of Paris. It was originally built as a church dedicated to St. Genevieve, modeled after the Pantheon in Rome, but after many changes now combines liturgical functions with its role as a famous burial place.
An exhibition on the life of Josephine Bonaparte was on display at the Luxembourg Museum. My patient husband relaxed outside while I explored every aspect of what was on display!
