Located on a land-filled swamp, this revitalized neighborhood, once a center of high culture, fell into disrepair following the French Revolution, but has regained prominence.

In my humble opinion, this is the best section to stay and wander. Le Merais has hip boutiques, amazing food and great people watching. You could certainly get lost for hours and it doesn't matter. Every place is better than the next.

Only in the Marais will you feel like a discoverer, with the endless delights this myriad nest of intertwined laneways and narrow streets unfolds to the senses, in a way no other does.

Stroll around the area in small streets and find a complete different city ... not Paris, the big city and its "hausmanian" buildings and big avenues ! Find little shops, little cafés... even houses/big mansions, stuck between 2 higher buildings. It's a really nice part...More

boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of

The Marais is an area of Paris so you could spend as few as two days or up to a week. Walk over to the Ile St. Louis for a different feel.
