The path is kept as a surprise, and it also changes depending on the circumstances :) But roughly speaking we'll be covering an area from Latin Quarter up to Saint-Germain-des-Prés, stopping in exquisite and inspiring places.
We'll walk ≃3,5km at a fast pace, so wear comfortable shoes! And bring an umbrella just in case :)
