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.

Le Marais is a very interesting neighborhood wit many shops and restaurants, also galleries are to find here and exclusive bars, in the daytime it is more friendly compared to the evening because shopwindows are closed with iron blinds

This area is referred to as the Jewish Quarter, we did a free walking tour, our guide gave us lots of information and history of Le Marais, their is plenty to see whether on a tour or just on your own.

A great neighborhood to spend time in. Cafe's, Patisserie's, small boutique shops, and great little restaurants. This is the old area of Paris which is filled with very interesting architecture, cobble stone streets and quaint stores.

The Marais is a cool neighborhood...lots of history and beautiful architecture. But the excellent nightlife really makes this place special. It was teeming with people...on a Monday night! It felt safe and comfortable there, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

This is an ancient neighborhood with lovely cafes and great small gourmet restaurants, wine shops, fruit vendors and classic urban spaces like the Place Des Vosges (also known as Place Royal) with its lovely arcades and central garden! Come and explore!

A little less touristy experience of Paris. Beautiful streets, lovely cafes, quirky stationery stores, second hand book stores, really good boulangeries, interesting brands and a handful of free museums.

You will not go wrong visiting Le Marais. During the day you will see the parisian architecture, old big doors, narrow streets, cafes, bakeries, boutiques and what not.... Very enjoyable, perfect for people watching, taking pictures, etc

Walking around the Marais is a feast. You discover boutique after boutique after brasserie after significant buildings. The Carreau du Temple is an oasis of greenery filled with the laughter of playing children and relaxing passers by.

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.
