Very helpful staff. Lots of leaflets in English too. There’s a bar way over to the left and public toilets to the right. This is by Roman ruins and the river.

Located right behind the Germanicus Arch, this place can provide you with a lot of info and brochures. As always, they insist on practicing their English, while I insist on practicing my French ;) Free WIFI. Closed 12:30 to 1:30PM **
