You can walk around around the Gothic quarter endlessly, so it's great when there is a designated route with unexpected turns, nooks and crannies (: We just wandered and admired the beauty, noticed something that would hardly pay attention on ourselves ✨ and still very cool that there was advice where you can make a cool photo with the Cathedral ! We walked about 4 hours, but the time flew by, and there was no fatigue :) in any case, from the end of the route very close to the subway, or if you are still fresh, you can walk to the beach and enjoy the sea-we did so 😌
