Let's start by explore the serinity Great Mosque of Paris as you approach it, you'll notice its stunning Moorish architecture. The mosque is located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, not far from the Jardin des Plantes and the Latin Quarter.` We start our visit by entering the courtyard, which is adorned with beautiful tiles, fountains, and lush greenery. It's a tranquil oasis in the heart of the city, take a moment to admire the intricate tile work and the calming sound of flowing water from the fountains. Upon entering the mosque, you'll be struck by its exquisite architecture, which is a blend of Moorish, Hispano-Mauresque, and Andalusian styles. The main prayer hall features stunning chandeliers, stained glass windows, and intricate geometric patterns. After the great Mosque, we take a short walk of five minutes to change the period of history and move to the Arènes de Lutèce, located in the 5th Quarter of Paris, it is a remarkable archaeological site that dates back to the Roman era. It is one of the few remaining Roman amphitheaters in France and offers a fascinating glimpse into the city's ancient history. As you step inside, you'll find yourself in the heart of the ancient amphitheater. Take a moment to appreciate the oval-shaped arena, which could once seat up to 15,000 spectators, imagine the lively events that took place here, such as gladiator battles, chariot races, and theatrical performances, consider the historical context of this impressive Arena. It's a vestige of the Roman occupation of Gaul and was used for various forms of entertainment. The Arènes de Lutèce offers a unique opportunity to step back in time and connect with Paris's ancient past. The site's relatively small size and quiet location make it a peaceful and reflective place to visit.
