Sci-fi short story with Latin speaking protagonists

I'm trying to recall a science fiction time travel short story set in a Paris cafe. The story begins when one man overhears another speaking in "antique Latin." I know that's not much to go on, but I'm hoping those few facts might ring a bell for some sci-fi loving askmetafilter genius!

Perhaps Ursula Le Guin's story 'April in Paris'?

This sounds to me a little like The Professor and the Mermaid, by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa.
