Hidden gems

Jardin du Luxembourg in autumn with fallen leaves

The Latin Quarter is one of the most romantic areas in Paris. This game takes you on a tour from the Arènes de Lutece to Notre Dame, Rue Mouffetard, the Pantheon and many others.

The goal of the game is to visit as many locations as possible, either in your own time or against the clock. But your score will also depend on who/what you see in the neighbourhood during your visit, so no tour will be the same. There are also questions and extra sites to visit for more points. It's entirely up to you how many sites you go to, but the game is designed to take you on a loop visiting both unmissable famous spots and hidden gems of the area. 

The game can be played by any number of people, and it's possible to split into teams to compete against your friends and family.

Without any detours, the route should take you around 1 hour 20 minutes to walk. We have also provided a list of recommended cafes, shops and restaurants along the route for you to try.

There are two ways to play:
- Explore - there is no time limit to your game, you can take your time finding the sites and pause whenever you want.
- Race - you only have one hour, so you have to decide which places you go and which you skip. If you’re in a big group and want to compete, you can also split into teams and see who gets the highest score.

The game is illustrated with photographs and facts about the areas throughout, and offers you a chance to visit unknown and less visited corners of the city.
