Boulevard Saint-Michel

A part of the foundation of the wall that enclosed the forum may be seen in the stairway of the underground parking lot at number 61 Boulevard Saint-Michel. Walk down the boulevard, once Lutetia's cardo, until you reach the Place de la Sorbonne on your right. The present-day sidewalk partially corresponds to the Roman walkway that ran alongside the forum, then (as now) lined with shops.
